Why Should I Get Braces as an Adult?

Many of our adult patients in the Royal Oak, MI area feel embarrassed and/or overwhelmed by the thought of having to undergo orthodontic treatment, but the truth of the matter is that adult orthodontics is very common. Did you know that one in every five patients undergoing orthodontic treatment is over the age of 21? Here at Petrous Orthodontics we believe in granting a beautiful smile to patients of any age; orthodontics does not have an age limit!

Braces Can Help Your Future

When you look good, you feel good. Whether its an interview, a date, or a social event, dressing to your best ability gives you the confidence to stand out, make a good first impression, or become the life of any party. And what’s a better accessory than your smile? Braces with Dr. Jerek Petrous and Dr. John Marx will straighten your teeth, realign your smile, and give you a smile that will change everything about your look.

It Doesn’t Have to Be Noticeable

Adults often associate the idea of braces with noticeable metal appliances, and they shy away from treatment with braces because they fear how they will look during treatment. Here at Petrous Orthodontics we offer fashionable alternatives including: Invisalign (the clear plastic aligner system) and ceramic braces (which are similar to traditional metal braces, but clearer and less visible).

The Cost Won’t Kill Your Wallet

Cost is important to consider, and the cost of orthodontic treatment can vary depending on the case. Normally, traditional metal options will cost upwards of $4,000 (with some less expensive options), while Invisalign will cost upwards of $5,000. And while your insurance may cover some of the costs, Dr. Petrous and Dr. Marx will assess your case individually and make your experience as cost effective as possible.

It is never too late to start straightening your smile. If you or someone you know in the Royal Oak, MI area is considering adult orthodontics with braces contact us today to schedule an initial appointment with Dr. Petrous, Dr. Marx, and the braces experts at Petrous Orthodontics.
