Orthodontics & Braces for Adults
Braces come in a variety of styles, materials, and colors. The addition of Invisalign makes orthodontic treatment much easier and more comfortable
Our practice strives to create your best smile. We offer several options for you to choose from:
- Ceramic (clear) braces
- Invisalign aligners
- Traditional metal braces
How long will I have to wear Braces or Invisalign aligners?
A patient’s cooperation is absolutely essential as they play a major role in the length of treatment time. Always remember to take care of your appliances and also to follow our instructions; this will truly help shorten your treatment time!
The difference between adult orthodontics and orthodontics for children and teens
The main difference between treating adults and children or teens is that the jaw bones of younger patients are still developing. For adults, these bones have stopped growing and may require orthognathic (jaw) surgery to correct the position of the jaws.
Gum or bone loss (periodontal disease)
Adults are more likely than children to experience gum recession or even bone loss due to gingivitis or advanced periodontal disease. Patients with straighter teeth are less likely to get gum disease.
Worn or missing teeth
Over time teeth can become worn down and shift into different positions that can only be corrected with orthodontic care. Missing teeth can cause other teeth to shift and tilt, creating a bad bite and increasing the possibility of gum disease.
Incomplete orthodontic treatment as a teen
Many adults received some orthodontic treatment as a child or teen, but never completed their treatment. As an adult, they choose to complete their orthodontic treatment to achieve the healthy, beautiful smile they always wanted.
Why should you consider orthodontic treatment?
A beautiful smile builds confidence
Orthodontic treatment can help boost your self-confidence, giving you a better quality of life and the freedom to smile without holding back!
Straight teeth are healthy teeth
Teeth that are properly aligned are easier to keep clean with flossing and brushing, and may help prevent other health problems.
