According to the American Academy of Orthodontists, the number of adults seeking orthodontic care annually has reached 1.2 million. Behind this surge in adult orthodontics is ClearCorrect™ and similar options such as Invisalign® that allow adults and older teens to discreetly and comfortably straighten teeth in a fraction of the time required by braces.
Hayward dentist Dr. Gary Fong is pleased to offer ClearCorrect for the perfection of moderate to severe malocclusion. During your initial consultation Dr. Fong will assess your bite issues, discuss all of your options, and help you determine if adult braces are the best solution for your smile.
Adult braces such as ClearCorrect and Invisalign utilize custom-made aligners that can be removed for tooth cleaning and eating. Because they can be removed while performing basic tasks, adult braces help patients maintain both oral and systemic health.
While aligners can be removed, they must remain in place throughout a majority of the day to properly straighten teeth. However, because they are made of clear, soft plastic, these aligners are incredibly discreet, giving them one more distinct advantage over braces.
If you are an adult who would like to address bite issues, please contact Gary G. Fong, DDS to schedule a ClearCorrect evaluation today. Dr. Fong provides adult braces to good candidates living in Hayward and surrounding areas of California.
