Complete Orthodontic Care For Lakewood & Long Beach, CA Adults

s-braces.jpgAs an adult, you might think orthodontic treatment is only for kids or teenagers. But, here at our Lakewood, CA orthodontic office, we want you to know that people of all ages can actually benefit from orthodontic treatment, especially adults. Tooth alignment and spacing issues can be corrected at any age if the bone structure and gums are healthy. Today, more and more adults are becoming orthodontic patients in order to improve their smiles, their overall oral health and their self-esteem. According to the American Association of Orthodontists (AAO), one in five orthodontic patients is an adult. It’s never too late to achieve the smile you have always wanted, and our Lakewood orthodontist Dr. Irene Fowell and her team offer a variety of treatments to help you get there.

Adult Orthodontics Improves Overall Oral Health

Orthodontic treatment is not only designed to improve the appearance of your smile and raise your confidence, it can also improve your overall oral health. By seeking orthodontic treatment as an adult, you can possibly avoid the following dental problems later in life:

  • Irregular wear of the tooth enamel
  • Severe tooth decay
  • Gum and bone loss
  • TMJ/TMD pain

Aesthetic Treatments

One of the most common apprehensions for adults considering orthodontic care is what they will look like during treatment. “Will it affect my career?” and “Will my social life change?” are very common concerns. Luckily, at Lakewood Dental Arts we offer treatments like clear ceramic braces and Invisalign that are cosmetically appealing because of their translucent appearance and barely-there nature. Our clear ceramic braces will blend in with your teeth while they effectively adjust your smile with the strength of traditional metal braces. With the Invisalign system, you can straighten your teeth without anybody even knowing!

Convenient Treatments to Fit Your Schedule

We know that as an adult and possibly a parent, your time is very precious. Dr. Fowell and her team of professionals use state-of-the-art technology that ensures faster treatment times, fewer office visits and increased comfort at home. Whether you are interested in the efficiency of traditional metal braces or the cosmetic appeal of Invisalign, our team is equipped with the tools and expertise to provide you with the high quality service that you deserve.
