ORTHODONTIC TREATMENT FOR ADULTS
You may think that orthodontic treatment is just for teenagers but with even A-List celebrities like Tom Cruise and Cynthia Nixon being photographed on the red carpet wearing braces, this is a perception that is rapidly shifting. According to the American Association of Orthodontists, one in five orthodontic patients are actually between the ages of 21 and 60, showing that it is no longer taboo. Having a beautiful smile is becoming increasingly important and having straight teeth is high up on the list. The good new is, you don’t need to have expensive veneers to get the perfect smile, adult orthodontics can straighten and align your own natural teeth so that you can look and feel fantastic.
WHY SHOULD I CONSIDER ORTHODONTIC TREATMENT?
Not only do straight teeth look better but straight teeth also equal healthier teeth. If your teeth are crooked or over crowded it can make flossing and brushing difficult and can lead to dental problems such as decay and gum disease. Orthodontic treatment can not only help boost your self-confidence but can give you a healthy new smile. Our practice recognizes that adults and children have different needs, and require a different level of attention and care so we will work with you to ensure that your needs are met with respect and understanding.
The new techniques and appliances we use for straightening teeth greatly reduce discomfort levels, decrease the frequency of visits, shorten the time in treatment and may allow you to choose from several options. Your options for a beautiful smile and good dental health make a difference in your well-being and self-confidence. While braces for teens are more common, adults can benefit just as much from orthodontic treatment, as it’s never too late to improve your smile. Some of the esthetic options we offer our patients include:
During your complimentary initial examination, we will be able to determine the best possible approach for straightening your teeth for your individual needs. During this initial examination, we can outline the treatment plan, time of treatment expected and the approximate cost.
A large percentage of our patients are adults, and they agree that it’s never too late to improve their greatest asset – their smile.
