Orthodontics in San Jose
Orthodontics are used to straighten teeth for an enhanced smile and to restore functionality to your jaw and bite.
The American Association of Orthodontists (AAO) recommends that all children should have an evaluation with an orthodontist by the age of 7 regardless of how many teeth have grown out. Orthodontists are able to predict if any structural changes will occur to the child’s mouth and cause future issues.
Adults who lacked access to an orthodontist as a child or who suspect their once-treated teeth are shifting may also consider a visit to the orthodontist. There are teeth-straightening methods available for both children and adults.
Traditional Metal Braces
Metal braces are the most common form of braces. They are highly efficient at correcting orthodontic problems and are the most cost effective option. They come in many colors, including those that will match the shade of your teeth for added concealment.
Fast Braces Technology
Time is the ultimate luxury for both, the patient and the doctor. FASTBRACES® Technologies, a true American original, is celebrating its quarter-of-a-century anniversary of providing products that help dentists and orthodontists straighten teeth. Teeth are crooked because they didn’t erupt properly and came in tilted, sideways, overlapping or spaced apart and, as a result, the alveolar bone demonstrates hypoplasia or hyperplasia. Tested in vitro and in vivo by universities in the 1990s, FASTBRACES® Technologies high performance bracket systems upright the roots of the teeth towards their final position from the beginning of treatment with just one square wire and thus establish the natural alveolar bone morphology naturally. Treatment time for non-surgical comprehensive orthodontic therapy should take more than 120 days with the FASTBRACES® CLASSIC SERIES and could take less than 120 with the FASTBRACES® TURBO® SERIES, depending on the patient cooperation and clinical experience of the treating doctor.
