As an adult, crooked teeth can be embarrassing, but the thought of wearing traditional metal braces is even worse. That’s why we offer a wide selection of clear, invisible, removable aligners for adult patients.
These clear aligners are nearly impossible for others to detect, but they’re easy and comfortable to wear throughout the day and night. Clear aligners offer the perfect solution for adults who want to straighten their teeth without drawing attention to themselves or dealing with the discomfort of metal braces.
We’ll work with you to identify the best brand of clear aligners for your situation. It only takes two weeks to order your customized set of clear aligners, which you wear at least 22 hours a day and switch out every two to three weeks.
Many patients see and feel the first results after just a few months. Call our office today to schedule your clear aligners consultation appointment and learn more about your options.
What Is Orthodontics?
Orthodontics is a dental specialty that focuses on diagnosing and treating tooth and jaw irregularities. Over time, the branch of orthodontics has expanded to treat adults as well as children and adolescents.
Since orthodontics is a versatile branch of dentistry, it can be used alone or in combination with other treatments to improve the health and appearance of the mouth. These are a few of the most common conditions treated by orthodontists:
- Overbite and underbite
- Widely spaced teeth
- Overcrowding in the mouth
- Teeth protrusions
Braces, clear aligners, retainers, and other removable appliances are frequently used to reverse orthodontic problems.
Who Can Benefit From Orthodontics?
In most cases, anybody above the age of 7 can benefit from orthodontics. The earlier that orthodontic treatments take place, the more effectively they can prevent future complications and keep the mouth in proper form.
You or your children may benefit from orthodontics if you fall into any of these categories:
- The teeth don’t fit together when biting down
- Thumb sucking and pacifier use has pushed the teeth in or out
- Teeth are spaced too far away from each other
- Teeth erupt at an angle and protrude from the mouth
- Teeth don’t have enough space to properly spread into correct formation
Braces For Adults
In the past, braces were used exclusively for children and teenagers with crooked, misaligned teeth. Today, more than one-third of all orthodontic patients are adults. Many never received orthodontic care as children, while others have new or worsening alignment issues to address.
We understand that adults want straighter teeth without the hassle, discomfort, and embarrassment of metal braces. This is exactly why we offer teeth straightening treatments using clear, invisible aligners like Clear Correct.
These clear aligners place gentle pressure on the teeth to shift them into place. As long as they’re worn at least 22 hours a day, clear aligners can be removed to eat, brush, and attend important events. Clear aligner braces for adults offer long-lasting results, often in less time than traditional braces.
Call us now to schedule your consultation and learn more about using clear aligners to create the smile you’ve always wanted.
Why Straighten Teeth?
Straight teeth are attractive, but they’re important for more than aesthetics. Using braces or clear aligners to straighten your teeth offers significant health and dental benefits, including:
- Reduction of tooth decay by making it easier to clean all tooth surfaces
- Decreased likelihood of developing periodontal disease
- Decreased likelihood of tooth injury from uneven wear
- Reduction in digestive disorders
- Improved jaw alignment, which reduces headaches, jaw pain, and teeth grinding
Overall, straight teeth create a confident, attractive smile that is easier to protect from painful injuries and complications.
