Adult Orthodontic Treatment

Adult Orthodontic Treatment Means It’s Never Too Late to Get a Beautiful Smile

Today, we are benefiting from a great many changes in options and treatment plans for adults that are much more comfortable and feature much more inconspicuous appliances that others are less likely to notice. More and more adults are seeing the benefits of correcting the alignment of their teeth for increased health and cosmetic appearance. At Silver Smiles Orthodontics, we are dedicated to helping all of our patients achieve brighter, more confident smiles – no matter their ages!

Why Seek Treatment as an Adult?

If you’re an adult who has suffered from teeth that aren’t straight or a misaligned bite for most of your life, we are still able to help you achieve a straight and beautiful smile. We have the ability to move healthy teeth at any age, so it’s never too late for treatment. Orthodontic treatment in adults differ from younger patients because jaw development and growth is complete in adults. Adults are also more susceptible to gum disease, so it is important you are in good periodontal health when undergoing orthodontic treatment. In order to prevent bone loss and weakening of the teeth, your orthodontist will first ensure your teeth and gums are in good health and that you’re dedicated to a good oral hygiene routine at home.

Appliance Options

Moving your teeth into correct position is accomplished with all orthodontic options in the same manner: the appliance chosen applies light and comfortable pressure on the teeth to correct their placement. As specialists, we offer a number of appliance options that are less visible and perfect for anyone’s personal and professional lifestyles. Our options include:

  • Metal Braces. We bond metal brackets to the front of the teeth and run a wire through the brackets to apply pressure to move the teeth into the proper positions.
  • Clear Braces. These works similarly to metal braces, except they are made of ceramic. With the exception of the wire going through the brackets, these are hardly visible. They are a bit more fragile than metal braces, however.
  • Invisalign. A series of clear aligners that are switched out every two weeks until the teeth are in proper alignment. They can also be removed for eating and cleaning the teeth. Because they are clear, they are hardly noticeable to anyone except you.

Retention

Your orthodontist will help you retain that beautiful smile you’ve worked to achieve by recommending retention treatment. With proper retention treatment, which usually involves wearing a custom retainer, your teeth will stay in their new positions and give you a beautiful smile for a lifetime!
