Orthodontics Isn’t Just for Kids

According to the American Association of Orthodontists, “Parents no longer take the back seat while their kids reap the benefits of orthodontic treatment. With one-in-three orthodontic patients over the age of 18, the number of adults seeing an orthodontist is at an all-time high.”

Benefits of Orthodontic Treatment

No matter your age, straighter teeth provide multiple benefits for your oral health as well as your personal well-being. They include:

  • Enhanced appearance & smile
  • Increased oral health
  • Improved self-confidence
  • Prevention of oral health issues like gum disease and tooth decay
  • Prevention of bone loss caused by improperly positioned teeth
  • Improved ability to bite and chew

Available Treatment Options for Adults & Teens

If the idea of wearing metal braces is keeping you from a beautiful set of teeth, then you’ll be glad to know that advancements in modern orthodontics mean you now have multiple options. In addition to traditional metal braces, we offer both options below for adults and teens who prefer a more discreet treatment method.

Invisalign® – uses a series of virtually invisible clear aligner trays to move your teeth into their optimal position. The treatment result is equal to traditional braces and may be achieved in less time.

Clear Braces – designed to work just like traditional metal braces, but they are made with clear or tooth-colored pieces that fit on your teeth so that the braces are nearly undetectable.

At your initial consultation, our experienced orthodontist will perform an in-depth exam to determine which treatment option will work best for your needs. Best of all, with our advanced treatment options, you’ll be smiling confidently in no time!
