Braces are wire appliances that Dr. David Li will attach to your teeth in order to correct teeth that aren’t properly aligned. Although most patients who need braces will get them in their early teens, more adults are turning to braces to straighten their smiles.

As an adult, you may have to wear your braces for a longer period of time. And since the bones in your face have stopped growing, you may have some issues that braces alone can’t fix. Since everyone is unique Dr. Li will help you decide if braces are right for you, or if some other treatment might be more beneficial.

While you are wearing your braces, it’s important to brush after every meal and to floss between your braces. Its also extremely important that you keep every appointment with us, because putting off your visits may lengthen the time you have to wear your braces. You should also keep your regular dental appointments, since your teeth will still need their regular cleanings during this time.

Each of us at San Diego Orthodontic Specialists in San Diego, California, is dedicated to giving you your best smile. Call us today at 858-560-4047 to make an appointment.
