Adult Orthodontics

Short process. Long-term results.

There is no such thing as being too old for orthodontic treatment. More adults than ever are seeking straighter teeth. Advancements in dentistry allow for more discreet and less invasive orthodontic treatments such as ceramic clear aligners (Invisalign and Clear Correct), lingual braces hidden inside your teeth, or ceramic braces. Further advancements allow us to speed up the process so that it can take half the time of traditional treatments. Further, many adult patients find that a partial treatment that addresses his/her particular area of concern can be completed in only a few months. And braces aren’t becoming popular for cosmetic reasons alone. Instead, many adults realize the long-term oral health benefits of having straighter teeth. Call today so we can talk about what plan is right for you.

Some adults once had straight teeth, and now they see that they have noticed an unwanted change to their smile or have experienced damage to their gums or teeth due to shifting. Others have always wanted to improve their smile but never had the opportunity. The dentist or hygienist often urges their patients to seek an orthodontic consultation before greater problems arise. Crowded, crooked teeth can be harder to clean, leading to gum disease. Research has shown a link between gum disease and increased heart attacks and strokes.

Further, patients who have lived with misaligned teeth or a bite that is ‘off’ may experience abnormal wear to their teeth or gums. Whatever your reason and age, now is the time to get the smile you have always wanted.
