More adults getting braces, tips on choosing an orthodontist….and Lasers!

A new series of articles on orthodontics and dental health has appeared in the LA Times, written by Amanda Mascarelli. Check out “Braces are for grown-ups too” and “How to choose an orthodontist” – you might even want to pass these along to friends considering braces. Other pieces are on advances in general dental health.


Mascarelli also wrote a cool piece about the use of lasers in orthodontics and dentistry, saying “Dental lasers are either an indispensable tool in a dentist’s toolkit or an emerging-but-unproven technology. It depends on whom you ask.” I learned a lot about just how these tools can be used, and why; read all about it at Lasers.

  1. Both the articles are really good. It is very important for people to know that the grown ups can also use braces for a perfect tooth structure. We shouldn’t be ashamed of using braces if it is capable of giving us a beautiful smile.
