Why would I need an Orthodontist in Berkeley?
If you have ever been worried about having overcrowded teeth or dealing with an overbite, two of which are just some of the most common orthodontic conditions, you don’t have to worry any longer. Estes Orthodontics has ample experience working with those cases. Orthodontists receive additional training and undergo extensive studies to correct and prevent problems with the alignment of your dental structures. So you can trust that when you choose us, you are going for an orthodontist in Berkeley that can do exactly what you need
What Berkeley orthodontics treatment is available to me?
Dr. Estes and the rest of the team have at their disposal a series of tools to treat the orthodontic conditions of young teens and adults. Traditional braces are a must in any office offering Berkeley orthodontics treatment, and you can count on us to install them and perform any additional checkups you need to ensure treatment is being effective. Of course, wearing braces is not easy, and yes, we say it because you should not eat popcorn during treatment. In case you do and a bracket comes off, you can also count on us to help you through your orthodontics emergency in Berkeley.
We offer a full array of alternative orthodontic treatments for patients coming to our office, and patients need not worry if they are particularly aware of how they will look with shiny metal wires in their mouths. Invisalign® clear aligners offer an alternative to get your orthodontic conditions fixed without the use of highly-visible braces. Patients can find this Berkeley orthodontic treatment when they come to our office in search of efficient appliances that integrate easily with their lifestyles.
Remember that you are never too old to start orthodontic treatment, we recommend that patients come to the office as early as age 7. Even if you never went in for an orthodontic review, or if you did receive recommendations about what treatment was right for you and never engaged in said treatment, you can count on us to start that journey towards a well-aligned smile. We have a page on cases we have worked on in case you want to visit. Younger patients who have had accidents involving their orthodontic appliances, or teeth that have endured severe trauma, can count on us to cover their orthodontics emergency in Berkeley.
Your first visit to our dental practice will be great to know you better. We will make sure to thoroughly document your dental history, consider any accidents you may have suffered in the past, take advanced imaging that allow us to formulate a better strategy to care for your orthodontic conditions and start making recommendations about what you should do to get a healthier smile.

Make us your next orthodontists in Berkeley and together we will get you that beautiful smile that lasts for a lifetime.
Orthodontists and dentists have the same initial training. An orthodontist follows a different specialization to focus on the alignment of your teeth and jaws. One is not necessarily better than the other, but we do different things. If you need braces or fixing an overbite, you have to visit an orthodontist.
We love our profession. It’s not an easy career, and there is a lot of work that needs to be done if you want to become an orthodontist, but we love what we do, and seeing the smile of your patients after completing their treatment is always cause for joy.
Yes, you can always choose to switch orthodontists to continue treatment at a more convenient location or with a professional that makes you feel more comfortable during treatment. Remember that every orthodontist has a different way of treating patients. You should communicate your intention to switch before you do it to have all the necessary information transferred to the new location.
Yes. You can always tell your orthodontist that you need to interrupt your treatment. Your orthodontist will always explain to you what needs to be done or the length of treatment, but we will never make you wear braces if you choose not to continue with them. If you finish your entire treatment, your orthodontist will gladly take off your braces.
Fortunately, you are never too old to start fixing your smile. We recommend that children start consulting with an orthodontist around ages 8 to 10. Examining jaw development at an early age can help prevent the onset of severe orthodontic problems later on and help avoid painful corrective treatments.
