Adult Orthodontics Treatment Options?

 

One of the biggest concerns we hear from adult patients about how braces will interfere with their life. Modern orthodontic treatment has come a long way since the bulky and uncomfortable braces they remember from childhood.

Contemporary braces offer a comfortable and convenient way to align your teeth. Many options are near invisible and are easy to maintain throughout your treatment. At Hess Orthodontics, we offer some of the most cutting edge options for treatment:

What Are The Benefits of Adult Braces?

 

Improving your smile can refresh your outlook and boost your self-confidence. But if you are considering braces, your physical health will benefit, too. When teeth are overcrowded or spaced too far apart, then they are more likely to develop risky conditions like tooth decay or gum disease. Crooked teeth put extra pressure on your head that can even cause jaw pain or chronic migraines.

 

Straight teeth are healthy teeth. When your teeth can conform to a natural pattern, it’s easier to keep them clean with regular flossing and routine maintenance. By choosing to align your teeth, you are preemptively addressing long term health complications that could wind up costing you more money than an alignment.

 

Are There Any Drawbacks?

 

Many adults who choose to upgrade their smiles come away with enduring results. Ideally, childhood is the best window to consider remedying alignment issues.

 

If you’re considering tooth alignment to correct your smile, keep these things in mind:

 

  • Some corrections won’t be possible without surgery since the bones have stopped growing.
  • Treatment time takes longer for adults than children.
  • You need to ensure that the treatment isn’t affected by gum-disease related bone loss; this may require visiting a general dentist or a periodontist.


While there is no such thing as a magic cure, orthodontics technology has adapted a lot in the last 30 years. Trusting your alignment to an expert is easier and safer than ever!

Adult Orthodontics Treatment Options

 

One of the biggest concerns we hear from adult patients about how braces will interfere with their life. Modern orthodontic treatment has come a long way since the bulky and uncomfortable braces they remember from childhood.

Contemporary braces offer a comfortable and convenient way to align your teeth. Many options are near invisible and are easy to maintain throughout your treatment. At Hess Orthodontics, we offer some of the most cutting edge options for treatment:

Ceramic Braces

 

Sometimes called clear braces, this low profile style option is less noticeable because they blend into your mouth seamlessly. They use a self-ligating bracket to hold the archwire in place, meaning many patients don’t require appliances or rubber bands. While they need a bit more upkeep, they allow for a level of comfort that is light years ahead of traditional braces. Experience the difference with Damon Q Braces.

 

Clear Aligners

 

Clear aligners have revolutionized how patients enhance their smiles. Made of thin and transparent materials, clear aligners allow you to correct your smile discreetly. With clear aligners, your smile gently moves into the correct position using a system of specialized aligners. All you need to do is wear them 20-22 hours a day and replace each aligner at regular intervals. We offer two options of clear aligners from Invisalign and AlignerLite.
