Quality, Comfortable, and Individualized Care
If you’re looking for “Invisalign near me,” you’re probably looking for an orthodontist that has extensive experience treating various types of Invisalign cases. By treating large numbers of Invisalign in Redwood City, Dr. Yang knows what will work best in your particular case and will set up your Invisalign treatment plan accordingly. With experience teaching and lecturing to dentists about how to get better results with Invisalign, rest assured that Dr. Yang knows the intricacies of Invisalign braces and will be able to give you the very best results possible. That’s why we frequently get referrals from former patients whose friends or family members now want to fix their smiles as well!
Yang Orthodontics also offers metal braces in Redwood City. Metal Braces are the tried and true method for straightening your teeth and are also great for those of you who don’t trust yourself wearing Invisalign over 20 hours per day. Unlike Invisalign, braces cannot be easily removed. This is particularly a good option for patients that snack a lot during the day or frequently forget to wear their Invisalign aligners.
Not wanting to look like a metal mouth but still don’t trust yourself (or your child) wearing Invisalign? A cosmetic alternative to metal braces is clear braces. Clear or cosmetic braces bond to your teeth just like metal braces do but are more esthetic and less noticeable. With clear braces, you can have something that’s less noticeable that traditional braces, but with the convenience of not having to remove a clear aligner every time you eat.
Are you afraid that getting orthodontic treatment will cramp your style? Braces and Invisalign don’t have to be uncomfortable. Dr. Yang, our orthodontist in Redwood City will create a personalized treatment plan to make sure you get a picture-perfect smile without sacrificing your lifestyle.
As a Board-Certified Orthodontist in Redwood City, CA, expect only the best service from Dr. Yang. At Yang Orthodontics, we provide high-quality care and strive to create an environment where you can feel comfortable in the process.

Seven is the best age for children to start seeing an orthodontist, according to the American Association of Orthodontists (AAO).
Your child’s permanent teeth are starting to replace the baby teeth during these ages. These growth spurts may happen fast or slow, which affects the alignment of your child’s teeth.
Therefore, it’s important to visit the orthodontist as soon as possible, to quickly address any dental issues before they get worse.
The ages 12 to 16 are common periods for braces. By this time, all the permanent teeth have grown, so gaps, crowding, and other bite issues are easily seen.
It’s easier to treat these issues early on before the jaw bones harden and stop growing.
The teeth will respond relatively quicker to treatments now than if you wait ‘til your child gets older. Also, addressing crooked teeth immediately can potentially prevent tooth decay, gum disease, or further tooth wear.
We understand your hesitation in getting orthodontic treatments. But you’re never too old to correct your bite problems, especially if it will improve your overall health and confidence. Since adult bones have already stopped growing, the entire process may take slightly longer for you than for children but there are safe ways to accelerate your treatment.
There are also other factors to consider, such as missing teeth, gum problems, and incomplete prior treatments. Dr. Yang designs treatment plans specific to adults to make you as comfortable as possible throughout the process.
