Orthodontics for Adults
People tend to associate orthodontics with children and adolescence. However, one out of every four orthodontic patients is an adult. Orthodontic treatment can be successful at any age, and adults especially appreciate the benefits of a beautiful smile since it can dramatically improve your personal appearance and self-esteem, while also improving the health of your teeth and gums.
There has never been a better time to have orthodontic treatment as an adult. Technology, techniques, and materials offer patients more opportunity and flexibility to improve their self-confidence through straighter teeth and a new smile.
We use new techniques and appliances that greatly reduce discomfort levels, decrease the frequency of visits, shorten treatment time, and may allow you to choose from several options. These options include metal braces, translucent braces, or transparent aligners.
As an adult orthodontic patient, there are special considerations that must be made. Adults are more likely to have gum disease and other issues that may require attention during treatment. Thatís why itís important that you continue to see a general dentist for routine examinations during treatment. The overall result is straighter, more functional teeth and a beautiful smile that will make you feel more confident.
