Orthodontic Treatment Options for Adults

Posted August 10, 2017

Has orthodontic treatment been recommended to you? Do you worry that you are too old to straighten your teeth? About 25% of orthodontic patients are now adults. At our practice, we want you to know that a straight, healthy, beautiful smile is within your reach— no matter your age. Our orthodontists offer a number of orthodontic treatments and are happy to help you find the one that matches your personal needs and desires. In addition to traditional metal braces, more aesthetic options are often available so you can maintain a natural, professional appearance while you straighten your teeth.

Orthodontic treatment is designed to correct many alignment issues in your smile including bad bites. Bad bites include crossbites, overbites, open bites, under bites, and others. There are many orthodontic treatment options that can correct these bites and align your smile into the ideal position.

Traditional braces utilize metal wires and brackets attached to your teeth as they gently push your jaw into place. There are also ceramic options that make the braces harder to notice by others.

Clear aligners are another form of orthodontic treatments that can snap on over your teeth. Aligners are worn for about 20 hours a day. These are a popular form of treatment since they don’t include any food or drink restrictions and are extremely hard to be seen by others.

During your initial visit with Dr. Skeet, Dr. Fiegle, and Dr. Katie, we will review all of your treatment options and help you choose the one you need for optimal results. Contact [practice_name] at [phone] today to learn more about orthodontics in [city], [state], and to schedule a visit.
