It’s never too late to achieve the healthy, beautiful and functioning smile you’ve always wanted. More
adults than ever before are opting to straighten their teeth with adult braces, and Dr. Partovi is proud to offer
them treatment options that are specifically designed for mature mouths.
The benefits of getting braces as an adult
After many years of experiencing crooked, protruding and misaligned teeth, getting braces as an adult comes
with a number of appealing benefits, including:
- Improved self-esteem. There’s no question that feeling self-conscious about the appearance of
your teeth can have a dramatic impact on your self-esteem – especially if it’s something you’ve struggled
with for many years. By getting adult braces at 360 Orthodontics,
you’ll gain renewed confidence and will feel more positively about your overall appearance.
- Optimal oral health. Crooked teeth and an overly crowded mouth provides innumerable crevices for
bacteria to breed. As such, adults with these issues are more likely to experience tooth decay and
periodontal disease. By straightening your teeth, you’re able to clean them more thoroughly, increasing
and preserving your oral health.
- A beautiful smile. One of the most visible benefits of adult braces is the megawatt smile you’ll
have after treatment. After years of suffering, you’ll finally be able to smile with confidence, knowing
you’re flashing straight and beautiful teeth to the world.
