What is the goal of teeth straightening for adults?

While most patients who visit Dr. Payam Bostani and his team of professionals are interested in straightening their smiles for aesthetic purposes, this is not the only reason to consider orthodontic treatments. Properly aligned teeth can improve your oral health and function, reducing your risk of developing problems such as tooth decay, gum disease, or bone loss. Additionally, conditions such as TMJ/TMD and bruxism may be impacted by smile alignment. Visiting Dr. Payam Bostani and his team is a great way to determine if you could benefit from orthodontic treatment at his office.

Do I need a retainer?

Retainers are used after orthodontic treatment to maintain the final alignment of the teeth. Teeth can shift with time, and wearing a retainer every night lets you keep your smile in place without needing further orthodontic treatments. There are three primary types of retainers, including:

  • Hawley retainers
  • Clear retainers
  • Fixed retainers
