A gorgeous, healthy smile never goes out of style. In fact, an estimated 20 to 25 percent of orthodontic patients are adults. Celebrities like Tom Cruise and Gwen Stefani have even worn braces in recent years. Straighter teeth will not only look better, but they can improve your oral health as well. When you have crooked teeth, brushing and flossing are more difficult, which can lead to plaque development and make you more prone to cavities or gum disease.
Adult orthodontics can:
• Straighten crooked teeth
• Relieve overcrowding
• Correct bite issues
• Alleviate jaw problems
Because many adult patients want to improve their smiles without the hassle and embarrassment of traditional braces, we offer other options. Clear brackets allow you to discreetly move your teeth into proper alignment. Another option, Invisalign, uses a series of clear, custom aligners to gradually straighten your teeth. Although you need to wear the aligners most of the time for optimal results, feel free to take them out for special occasions.
When you come in, we will gather your history and take X-rays. The doctor will perform a complete exam and then discuss the findings with you. We will create a customized treatment plan, review the time frame, explain estimated costs, and answer any questions you have.
Don’t live with a less-than-perfect smile. Call our office today and schedule a consultation appointment to discuss adult orthodontic treatment options.
We look forward to seeing you!
