It's Never Too Late to Improve Your Smile Through Orthodontic Treatment
Posted on 10/13/2015

Are you an adult who's considering contacting a San Jose orthodontist so you can improve your smile? Then the team at Lennard Orthodontics encourages you to contact us today! We offer several orthodontic treatment options for adults including the very popular Invisalign System and translucent ceramic braces for the discreet treatment many adults prefer. 

We also offer conventional metal braces, which are made of high-grade stainless steel. These metal braces are smaller, more attractive and more comfortable than the bulky metal braces used in the past.


Many Reasons Why Adults are Seeking Treatment

It is estimated that 1 in 5 orthodontic patients today is an adult and there are many reasons why adults are seeking orthodontic treatment like never before. Some adults had orthodontic problems as children but never underwent treatment to address those problems. Others who did undergo treatment when they were younger seek treatment later because they neglected to wear their retainers as directed. Many of the adults we serve decide to seek treatment because they've learned there are many benefits to having a straight, attractive and healthy smile they can wear proudly for the rest of their lives. 

How Can Adults Benefit from Orthodontic Treatment?

There are many ways adults benefit from orthodontic treatment. These benefits include: 

Alignment of the teeth to create a more confident, beautiful smile 

Correction of relapse following previous orthodontic treatment due to lack of long-term retainer wear 

Makes it easier to maintain oral hygiene 

Makes it more comfortable and easier to bite and chew food 

Reduces the amount of wear and tear on tooth surfaces due to grinding the teeth or a bad bite 

Can reduce or eliminate TMJ/TMD pain
