ANNOUNCEMENT (UPDATED 6/1/2020):
To our dear patients and families,
We hope this letter finds you and your families in good health. Our community has been through a lot over the last few months, and all of us are looking forward to resuming our normal habits and routines. As of today, June 1, 2020, we have returned to our regular business hours. We are open Monday through Thursday, from 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM.
While many things have changed, one thing has remained the same: our commitment to your safety. Infection control has always been a top priority for our practice and you may have seen this during your prior visits to our office. Our infection control processes are made so that when you receive care, it's both safe and comfortable. We follow recommendations made by the American Dental Association (ADA), the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and keep up-to-date on any new rulings or guidance that may be issued.
We have made some changes to help protect our patients and staff. For example:
We look forward to seeing you again and are happy to answer any questions you may have about the steps we take to keep you, and every patient, safe in our practice. To make an appointment, please call our office at (650) 961-5047 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
While we are taking every precaution possible for the safety of our patients and team members, if you prefer not to come in person to the office just yet, we understand. Please let us know right away, and our front office team can help you to postpone or reschedule your appointment. Please note that we are also offering virtual appointment options for some types of procedures.
Thank you for being our patient. We value your trust and loyalty and look forward to welcoming back our patients, neighbors, and friends.
Dr. Nahal Ashouri & Team
Our Mountain View, California, Orthodontic office is located near El Camino Hospital and Palo Alto Medical Foundation in Mountain View. We provide orthodontic metal and clear braces & Invisalign (Invisaline) care to adults and children in a warm, state-of-the-art environment with the commitment of continuing to practice the newest advancement in technique and treatment. Our goal is to provide you with a beautiful, healthy smile at a minimum of cost and inconvenience.
Dr. Ashouri is an Invisalign Platinum Plus provider which means that she is among the top 1% of most experienced Invisalign providers in the US.
Not so long ago, orthodontic braces were used to treat malocclusion and other dental issues in young children. Today, with increasing realization of the benefits of good teeth and jaw structure, up to 40% of our practice of orthodontics consists in treating adults. The ages of these adults are not confined to early forties or fifties either. Grandparents, senior citizens and even senior-senior citizens are visiting orthodontists in increasing numbers to get their crooked teeth corrected. Many adults choose Invisalign braces as it is very comfortable and convenient. These truly invisable braces can do much more today than they could a few years ago. We can fix underbites, overbites, crossbites, and many other problems with Invisalign braces today.
Benefits from Orthodontics
Orthodontics can do more than just improve your smile. It also can give your teeth better function and gum health. When teeth are crowded or misaligned, it is harder to keep them from getting tooth decay or gum disease. In addition, a bad bite can cause your teeth to become loose and eventually fall out.
Another benefit of orthodontic therapy is an improvement in your facial appearance. If a patient has a prominent lower jaw, or a retruded chin, for example, orthodontics can correct this. And, if a patient's bite contributes to problems in their jaw joint, then this can be corrected also.
Finally, missing teeth, unerupted teeth, and wisdom teeth can all be managed by an orthodontist. Through the coordinated services of an oral surgeon, your general dentist, and our Mountain View Orthodontic office, what could otherwise be an unhealthy bite can be corrected. Many of the procedures that we had to use full braces for in the past can now be treated by Invisalign (Invisaline).
