Why Do Adults Need Orthodontics?
When one hears the word “orthodontics” they conjure up images of a teenager with a mouthful of metal braces. Teenagers with braces are still fairly common, but Invisalign is rapidly catching up as a sensible, convenient, and safe way to effectively straighten teeth-for adults too!
Dr. Vickie Greenberg was recently awarded the title of Diamond Status Invisalign Provider, and she successfully completes hundreds of Invisalign cases every single year for patients of all ages. If you or somebody you know is searching for the best Invisalign Doctor in the San Gabriel Valley, then you’ve come to the right place!
Adults and Orthodontics
Your teeth have a lot to do with your overall health. When your teeth are straight and your bite is even, it’s easier to keep your teeth clean and properly cared for.
As you get older your teeth start to shift around. That’s why it’s important to schedule regular visits to your dentist and orthodontist in order to stay on top of these changes and to get the treatment you need before your case becomes more complicated, and therefore more expensive to treat.
There’s absolutely nothing wrong with taking pride in your appearance, especially as you get older. Your smile is one unbeatable way to retain a youthful appearance no matter how old you are! When your teeth are properly aligned, and your bite is even, that means your jaw is strong. When your jaw is firmly in place, it holds up your face, minimizing a slackening jaw line.
It’s not just about appearances though. As you age, it becomes increasingly important to eat the right foods and get enough sleep. A healthy smile will enable you to eat the foods you need to stay healthy, as well as facilitate a healthy airflow so that you’re getting the proper oxygen needed to sleep deeply at night.
It’s never too late to get the orthodontic treatment you need in order to make aging a little bit easier, and to do it feeling healthy and strong.
Best Technology in Orthodontics
Dr. Greenberg makes it a priority to always provide her patients with the best of care, and that means using the latest cutting-edge technology.
Dr. Greenberg uses the Fotona Laser for snoring and sleep apnea treatment. It is a safe and painless way to tighten up the tissues of the soft palate, which are often responsible for obstructing the airway, causing snoring or difficulty breathing during sleep.
The procedure is safe and painless, and the results often last for up to a year!
The Fotona Laser can also be used for teeth whitening. It is the quickest, safest, and most effective teeth whitening procedure currently on the market. It uses a unique wavelength that doesn’t heat up your teeth (causing damage) like other whitening procedures do.
When it comes to the health of your teeth, and your safety and comfort, Dr. Greenberg will only settle for the best technology and equipment.
