It’s never too late to achieve the healthy, beautiful and functioning smile you’ve always wanted. More adults than ever before are opting to straighten their teeth with adult braces, and Dr. Partovi is proud to offer them treatment options that are specifically designed for mature mouths.

The benefits of getting braces as an adult

After many years of experiencing crooked, protruding and misaligned teeth, getting braces as an adult comes with a number of appealing benefits, including:

  • Improved self-esteem. There’s no question that feeling self-conscious about the appearance of your teeth can have a dramatic impact on your self-esteem – especially if it’s something you’ve struggled with for many years. By getting adult braces at 360 Orthodontics, you’ll gain renewed confidence and will feel more positively about your overall appearance.
  • Optimal oral health. Crooked teeth and an overly crowded mouth provides innumerable crevices for bacteria to breed. As such, adults with these issues are more likely to experience tooth decay and periodontal disease. By straightening your teeth, you’re able to clean them more thoroughly, increasing and preserving your oral health.
  • A beautiful smile. One of the most visible benefits of adult braces is the megawatt smile you’ll have after treatment. After years of suffering, you’ll finally be able to smile with confidence, knowing you’re flashing straight and beautiful teeth to the world.

Do you need adult braces?

The only way to know for sure if you need braces as an adult is to come into 360 Orthodontics for a full evaluation. If Dr. Partovi in Los Angeles sees any of the following issues during that appointment, she may recommend treatment:


Also known as “buck teeth,” this occurs when the upper teeth are located too far in front of the lower teeth.


An underbite occurs when the lower jaw protrudes beyond the upper jaw, causing the front lower teeth to overlap the front top teeth.


A crossbite occurs when the upper teeth don’t come down slightly in front of the lower teeth as they should.

Open bite.

This occurs when some of the top and bottom teeth don’t meet when biting.


Crowding occurs when there isn’t enough space for the teeth to fit properly within the jaws. Signs of crowding are teeth that are twisted and displaced.

Midline misalignment.

This occurs when the middle of your upper front teeth doesn’t align with the middle of your lower front teeth.

Excess spacing.

This occurs when there is too much space in between the teeth, creating a gap.

If one or more of the above problems are present, Dr. Partovi may recommend a personalized treatment plan to correct the issue and provide you with healthy, straight and beautiful teeth.

Treatment options for adults

Always committed to providing braces for adults, Dr. Partovi is proud to offer the full range of orthodontic options for her mature patients, including:


By far one of our most popular options, Invisalign allows you to straighten your teeth in the most discreet way possible. It utilizes a clear, plastic appliance that is virtually invisible, giving you the flexibility to live your life without worrying about your appearance.
