Orthodontics is not only for children. Adults can benefit greatly from having orthodontic treatment too. Orthodontic treatment is often part of a comprehensive dental health care plan.
The goal of orthodontic treatment is to give you straight teeth that mesh well with each other. A good bite makes it easier for you to bite, speak and chew. Your dental health and overall health will be enhanced, as well as your self-esteem.
Orthodonticsoffers treatment for adults as well as children and teens.
The benefits of orthodontic treatment for adults include:
Decrease gaps between teeth
Givea more aesthetically pleasing smile
Improve function and ability to chew foods
Improve oral hygiene by eliminating plaque
Decrease tooth wear due to grinding or a misaligned bite
Advancements in techniques and materials have led to a rapid increase in adult orthodontics. Adult patients seek treatment for many reasons, such as a more professional image, to boost self-esteem, and to improve the function of the teeth and jaw.
Some of our adult patients never had the opportunity for orthodontic treatment as children, and they are now seeking it for the first time. Other patients wore braces as teenagers, but they have experienced a relapse due to improper wearing of retainers.
A third group of adult orthodontic patients have problems that were previously uncorrectable, which are now treatable thanks to the technological advancements in orthodontic care.
We offer the following types of braces:
* Traditional Metal Braces
* Lingual Braces
* Clear Braces
* Mini-Diamond Braces
