Choosing the Right Adult Orthodontic Option
If you are an adult with tooth misalignment issues, you may feel that the time for treatment has passed you by – after all, aren’t braces just for kids?
We understand you don’t want to walk around with a mouth full of metal, but the good news is you don’t have to! Advances in technology and treatment techniques have opened up a whole new world of possibilities for adults bothered by crooked or crowded teeth.
Depending on your needs, you can choose the treatment that best fits your lifestyle, timeline, and budget. Here are just a few of the many options to consider:
This is probably the best known treatment because it has changed the way we approach mild to moderate alignment issues. We work with you to develop a personalized treatment plan using Invisalign clear plastic aligners to gently nudge your teeth into proper position. Patients like Invisalign because the aligners are discreet, comfortable to wear, and removable for eating and oral hygiene.
Like Invisalign, Power Prox is a modern twist on orthodontic treatment. For most adults, misalignment is simply an esthetic problem, and they don’t need or want involved treatment. PowerProx is designed to move only the teeth that show when you smile, and the average treatment time is six to nine months.
The fastest solution for a straighter smile is Inman Aligners. The aligners are placed on both sides of your teeth, and opposing forces gently move teeth into proper alignment in a matter of weeks.
