At My LA Braces, we believe that any age is the perfect age to get a healthier and more attractive smile. Whether your orthodontic issues have never been treated, appeared after previous treatment, or occurred because of an accident, braces can help you achieve results that you’re proud to see in the mirror. Braces are a fantastic tool that industry-leading scientists have perfected, so you benefit from an appliance that is more effective and aesthetically pleasing than ever. Before discovering his passion for orthodontics, Dr. Parsa studied bio-engineering, and he is the perfect person to engineer a treatment plan that addresses any orthodontic issues and goals you have.
Are Braces an Option for Me?
While you may think braces are only for teens, more adults than ever have sought out braces treatment in recent years. This appliance works for patients of any age and is designed to shift your teeth and jaw into place for the stunning smile you deserve. Braces have remained the top appliance in orthodontics for years because of their ability to quickly and efficiently create beautiful, healthy smiles that last a lifetime. Previous models of this corrective treatment may have been bulky, but with modern advancements, they are sleeker and more effective than ever. As long as you have good oral health, you are a perfect candidate for braces, and you can begin your journey to a better smile today.
Why You May Need Orthodontic Treatment
Many people don’t realize that corrective treatment may be the key to achieving better oral health and aesthetics. Adults go through their lives suffering unnecessary pain while chewing, biting, speaking, and more because they have untreated orthodontic issues such as overcrowding, misaligned jaws, and crooked teeth. We are firm believers that you should get the most out of your smile, and this means having a better-functioning smile. Braces are great at correcting structural issues, which in turn makes it easier to brush and floss your teeth.
When your teeth are straight, and your smile is gleaming, the positive effects go deeper than the surface level. We’ve seen lives transformed as our patients gain confidence from their new and improved smiles.
We know our adult patients who are constantly on the go need an appliance that can keep up with their lifestyle. Braces are an excellent choice for older patients because you never have to worry about taking them on or off, which gives you the chance to focus on your daily tasks. Many of our older patients appreciate how effective the appliance is and how little they have to think about it from day to day.
We are passionate about providing our patients with services that flawlessly fit into their lives, and that’s why we made it a priority to offer various types of braces. Each type of appliance is designed to tackle orthodontic issues big and small, but they differ in look and function. The types of braces we offer include:
Traditional Metal Braces: These braces are a classic treatment that uses metal brackets, stainless steel wires, and elastics to transform your smile. This appliance has been upgraded over recent years, so patients benefit from a more discreet and effective treatment.
Clear Braces: Clear braces may be a perfect choice if you’re excited about getting braces but want a treatment that isn’t as noticeable as the metal appliance. These braces function similarly to metal braces, but instead of stainless steel brackets, they consist of a series of clear brackets that blend in with the color of your natural smile. While this appliance is highly effective, it’s slightly less durable than the metal version.
Damon Braces: One of the most exciting breakthroughs in braces technology is the creation of Damon braces. Orthodontic experts and engineers researched what qualities made a smile look more natural and beautiful and then created a type of braces that aimed to help your smile reflect these qualities.
Rather than using regular brackets and elastics, Damon braces use a patented slide mechanism that allows the wire to move freely throughout treatment. Elastics can cause friction that slows your progress and keeps you in treatment longer. With this unique appliance, there is little friction, so you enjoy a quicker treatment. The lack of rubber bands also gives you the opportunity to have better oral health because it is easier to brush around these smooth and sleek brackets.
