More and more adults are turning to orthodontics to improve their outlook on life and their overall oral health. Beautiful, straight and healthy teeth are meant for everyone. The fact is that your smile is your greeting card. Broad and open – it says you're happy and confident.
Many people think orthodontic treatment is only for children. You may be surprised to learn that 30 percent of our patients are adults who agree that it's never too late to have a healthy, beautiful smile.
Do you know…
You can sharpen your face shape and facial features with orthodontics treatment?
You may not need a prosthetic tooth (implant, crown, bridge etc.) to close an unsightly tooth gap?
Crooked or crowded teeth can lead to gum disease, tooth decay and eventual early tooth loss?
Malocclusion, or a bad bite, can cause jaw and facial pain, known as TMD (temporo-mandibular joint dysfunction)?
Some basic facts: if teeth are tipped or rotated, it is difficult for your toothbrush and floss to reach all areas exposed to decay. By straightening your teeth, braces help to minimize that exposure and allow your brush and floss to do their job.
Forget what you knew about braces. Modern orthodontic treatment is more comfortable, less visible and requires fewer appointments than you would expect. The use low-friction, tooth-colored ceramic/metal advanced technology that works with space-age wires, in combination with our skills and experience, creates the correct, gentle pressure to guide your teeth to their ideal position. This gentle pressure works with the natural forces of your body, allowing for greater comfort throughout treatment.
It is important to pay special attention to each adult patient's needs. We monitor progress periodically and adjust treatment accordingly.
The treatment is for any age. Many of our adult patients say that having straight teeth improves their oral health, smile and self-confidence.
It's time to show the real you!
