Dental Braces in El Cajon, CA
Good news! Having a gorgeous smile is not only possible for teens, but for adults too! Braces are a proven way to beautify your smile regardless of age!
But we know what you’re thinking, what kind of adult wants metal brackets and wires sticking around their teeth? Well you can get your teeth straightened with clear aligners as well
These types of clear orthodontics have become a frequent treatment option for adults looking to correct issues with alignment, bite, crowding, closing gaps, and lining up the jaw.
Here are a few things to keep in mind if you are planning to perfect your smile:
Setting Up For Success
Look, we get it– adults lead incredibly busy lives, but it’s still important to schedule routine checkups to guarantee the health of your smile. At these checkups we will ensure that your teeth are healthy, make any necessary adjustments to your braces, and go over best practices that you should do at home to take care of your teeth until the next visit. Usually we see most patients with braces every 6 months but we will make recommendations about the frequency of checkups based on your unique needs.
With classic braces we recommend that you not consume sticky or hard foods because they can damage brackets or get lodged between them. Caramel, sugared gum, hard candies and slicing rather than biting into certain foods like apples, corn on the cob and ribs are to be avoided.
Also, good hygiene is crucial to the success of your adult braces. Due to the appliances used with classic braces, you will need to allocate a little more time to brushing and flossing to make sure that all food particles are removed, and each section of the mouth properly cleaned.
We are dedicated to setting up your smile for success. When you get your braces here our team members will show you exactly how to take care of them. You will even receive a complimentary kit that includes detailed instructions, a food list, an oral hygiene kit, and other goodies!
Alternative Options To Traditional Braces
If you want to stay away from traditional wires and metal brackets, treatment options such as clear aligners are the way to go. We offer Invisalign to correct a wide array of typical dental issues. Invisalign aligners are both clear and detachable, so you don’t have to fret about food restrictions or anyone knowing that you have braces in.
