Ortho for Adults
Orthodontics is not just for kids.
Today, over 25% of our orthodontic patients are adults!
Do you worry that you are too old to straighten your teeth? Don't hide your smile. At Petaluma Dental Group we welcome you to call our office for a free consultation and to learn more about our adult orthodontics.
We want you to know that a straight, healthy, beautiful smile is within your reach - no matter your age. We offer a number of orthodontic treatments and are happy to help you find the one that matches your personal needs. In addition to traditional metal braces, more discreet options are available so you can maintain a natural, professional appearance while you straighten your teeth. At your visit with our orthodontist, Dr. Kapila, we will review all of your treatment options and help you choose the one you need for optimal results.
Adults seek orthodontic treatment for a variety of reasons. Most patients know that straighter teeth makes a prettier smile, however, not everyone knows that properly aligned teeth can help improve your overall health as well! Orthodontic treatment, whether braces or clear aligners such as Invisalign® can be a very important part of preventative and proactive healthcare for many health issues that people do not realize are caused by their teeth, with the added benefit of a beautiful smile.
At Petaluma Dental Group and Smile More Petaluma, we are proud to welcome adults into our ortho family.
Benefits of ortho for adults
Self confidence and esteem come with feeling better about how you present yourself to the world. Enjoy your beautiful smile!
Healthy straight teeth are
not only beautiful, As we
age, our teeth shift and can cause crooked teeth which can result in decay and pain
Crowded teeth can make it hard to floss or clean between your teeth. This can lead to decay and gum disease.
Even if the teeth are straight, the bite can be off, contributing to jaw pain, stomach issues and misalignment of facial and jaw growth
Stress and Jaw Pain
Aligning the teeth can help your temporomandibular
joint (TMJ) move back into better alignment, which can alleviate chronic jaw pain
Keeping the airways open by allowing enough space in the mouth for free and easy breathing can be addressed with ortho treatment in some patients
