You might assume that orthodontic treatment is exclusively for the young…an option reserved for kids and teens. While many years ago that might’ve been the case, today more and more adults are choosing orthodontic care to correct teeth alignment, bite and spacing, and there are many options beyond traditional braces.
Here at Touchstone Orthodontics, we’re proud to offer orthodontic treatment options for children, adolescents and adults.
Improving Appearance and Self-Esteem
The need for a positive self-image doesn’t stop at our growing years. Being comfortable with your appearance can impact everything from personal relationships to professional careers. Orthodontic treatment can help by not only improving your smile and outward appearance, but also contributing to an overall boost in self-esteem.
More Options Than Ever Before
Decades ago, orthodontic treatment used to include wires and brackets around each individual tooth, requiring manual periodic tightening to achieve results. That was the only choice you had. Today, modern technology affords us so many more options!
Today, patients can also consider the Damon System (tieless braces) and Invisalign. Invisalign is a particularly attractive option for adults. After all, there’s a reason they call it Invisalign! These highly effective clear aligners give patients a virtually invisible option that works quickly and discreetly, making Invisalign a perfect choice for adults looking to improve their smile without metal braces.
Better Dental Health
Misaligned teeth and bite issues can lead to a number of gum and teeth problems, including decay, inflammation and gum disease. No matter what your age, addressing these problems with orthodontic treatment like Invisalign can greatly improve your dental health.
If you’re an adult looking for orthodontic solutions, we’d love to offer a complimentary exam. Give us a call to schedule, or fill out the form to get in touch.
