Newbury Park Orthodontics for All Ages
We all want the most attractive smile possible, but the benefits of straight, well-aligned teeth go beyond the cosmetic. Anyone who has had their bite corrected with orthodontics will tell you it’s also about being able to eat, speak and smile with ease -- and that you just can’t put a price on a confident, healthy and good-looking smile. That’s why at Paraiso Family Dental and Orthodontics, we’re proud to offer traditional orthodontic options to patients of all ages.
Providing Excellent Results with Orthodontics
Conventional metal braces have long been associated with teendom, but we know that children, adolescents and adults can all benefit from the trusted treatment. In addition to braces in Newbury Park, Paraiso Family Dental and Orthodontics also employs retainers and spacers to help you achieve the straighter, more beautiful smile you deserve.
Children's Orthodontics Fixes Problems Early
One big benefit of considering orthodontic treatment for your child is the simple fact that many problems in the alignment of teeth are far easier to correct in a younger age, before the jaw and gums have fully formed. Problems like overbite, underbite, crossbite as well as mouth breathing and the effects of thumbsucking can all be dealt with early -- so we recommend your child to have her first orthodontic visit around age 7.
Adult Orthodontic Treatments
There's nothing that says orthodontics are limited to children and teens. In fact, it’s estimated that more adults than ever wear braces these days -- with as many as one in every five adults currently undergoing orthodontic treatment. For adults who have developed an alignment issue, or who have always dealt with crooked, crowded, gapped or otherwise misaligned teeth, orthodontics provide the beautiful, functional smile everyone wants -- and deserves.
Additional Orthodontic Options
Some adults and image-conscious teens just cannot bear the thought of conventional metal braces. For these patients, we’re thrilled to be able to offer other options -- like braces with clear brackets and wires, or lingual braces, which attach to the back of your teeth, rather than the front. Sometimes we decide that a patient is more suited for Invisalign, which uses clear, plastic aligners to gradually shift teeth into the preferred position.
