If you are a candidate for standard braces, then you are probably a candidate for Invisalign. This system uses custom made transparent aligners, sometimes with the addition of tooth-colored attachments, to straighten teeth, correct bite problems, close spaces, and more. Because the aligners are removable, there are no dietary restrictions and daily oral hygiene is simple.
Are you a candidate for adult braces?
The answer is yes if your teeth and jaws are fully developed (usually age 16 and older) and you have any kind of orthodontic problems.
We offer solutions for:
- Crooked, rotated, or widely spaced teeth
- Under bite, overbite, cross bite
- Tooth or bite misalignment
Choosing the right type of adult orthodontic treatment
There is not a universal “best” answer to orthodontic problems. The right treatment depends on your oral health needs, lifestyle, treatment goals, and personal preferences. That is why we offer several different options. Dr. Harpreet Aulakh will begin with a comprehensive evaluation and in-depth discussion. She will explain what options are appropriate for your oral health, what each one can accomplish, and what to expect during treatment. You are encouraged to voice any concerns that you may have and ask questions.
