Braces aren't just for kids anymore. Tooth alignment can be changed at any age if your gums and bone structure are healthy. Your new smile can begin today.
Smiles can boost your confidence and self-esteem. As we see the dramatic transformations that orthodontics brings to our adult patients, we also see their attitudes transform as well.
Through orthodontic treatment, you're not only straightening your teeth — you are improving your health! Misaligned teeth are harder to clean and can contribute to gum and bone loss, tooth decay, abnormal wear of the tooth enamel and surfaces, headaches and jaw joint (TMJ/TMD) pain.
Many of our adult patients worry about the aesthetics of orthodontic treatment and the length of treatment. Orthodontics has advanced tremendously in recent years. The new techniques and appliances we use greatly reduce discomfort levels, decrease the frequency of visits, shorten treatment time and may allow you to choose from several options which may include metal braces, translucent braces or transparent aligners that can be worn to improve mild cases of misaligned teeth.
Achieving the new, healthy smile you deserve is one of the best investments you can make. Contact Dr. Shimizu for a consultation to see how orthodontics can change your smile — and your life!
