Customized Adult Orthodontic Treatments 

Next Generation Braces

We’re the only office in Bakersfield to offer 30, custom prescription braces. Next Generation Braces fit your teeth better, which means less discomfort, less appointments, and less time in braces.

INBRACE Invisible Braces

INBRACE Invisible Braces are placed behind the teeth, making them invisible. They’re also easier to keep clean than traditional braces. 

Beyond lnvisalign

lnvisalign braces use clear aligners so they’re practically invisible. They’re also removable, so you can still enjoy all your favorite foods while in braces. At OrthoArts, we make our own clear aligners that result in shorter treatment times.

Surgical Orthodontics

Surgical orthodontics is sometimes necessary to treat complex issues that involve the skull, face, jaw, and mouth. Dr. G has extensive experience in surgical orthodontics from his time at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia and Naval Medical Center San Diego.

Adult Treatment FAQs

Since I'm already an adult, is it too late for me to get braces?

It’s not too late! While many factors play a role in determining whether or not you should get braces, age is rarely one of them. We treat many adults in our office.

I have crowns and missing teeth. Can I still get braces?

Absolutely! If you have crowns and/or missing teeth, you can still get braces.

How long will my treatment take?

Treatment times vary, but we do all we can to keep your appointments short and reduce your time in braces. Dr. G will give you a time estimate once the two of you decide on a treatment option.

Do I need a referral from my dentist?

No, you do not need a referral from your dentist to see an orthodontist.

How much do braces cost? Will my insurance cover the cost?

The cost of braces will differ based on your type of treatment. Most of the time, your insurance plan will cover at least a portion of the cost. We’re happy to help you choose an affordable treatment plan, and we offer flexible payment options.

If I get braces, how often will I need to come in?

How often you need to come in while wearing braces depends on your specific treatment plan, but the average for most people is every four to eight weeks. While we love seeing you, we know our office isn’t the first place you want to be, so we do all we can to make your appointments few and far between.

How often should I brush my teeth while wearing braces?

While in braces, you should continue to brush your teeth twice a day. In some cases, you may want to brush your teeth after meals to remove loose food from the brackets. When you get your braces on, we’ll give you detailed instructions about how to care for your teeth.

Do I need to see my dentist while I have braces?

Yes, it’s important that you continue to visit your dentist during your orthodontic treatment. In fact, your dentist may advise you to come in more often if you’re getting braces.

What happens if I have a problem with my orthodontic appliances?

If this happens, give us a call and we’ll do our best to help. Remember, we’re always available to answer your questions and help make your experience as easy as possible.
