Orthodontics As An Adult
At Brown & Gettings, DDS, we do everything we can to help our patients have a beautiful and functional smile they are proud of and love to show off. We often stress to our patients the importance of putting their oral health first and learning what we would suggest to improve their smile. Sometimes, we have patients who are hesitant to do more to improve their smile due to their age. We commonly see this when we recommend orthodontic treatments. Gone are the days when orthodontic treatments were only for teenagers. Orthodontic care can greatly improve the placement of your teeth and also eliminate other problems that many adult patients like you experience.
Benefit of Treatment
While many patients initially inquire about adult orthodontic treatment for the aesthetic benefit, there are a number of other reasons orthodontic treatment can be beneficial to your oral health. If you experience issues with your teeth crowding, you know how difficult it can be to brush and floss properly. When teeth are not properly aligned and there are other issues, such as overcrowding, it can lead to persistent dental decay. Over time, decay will lead to the need for treatments such as dental crowns, root canals, and even tooth extraction. Orthodontic treatment can also be beneficial to patients who have issues with jaw placement and constant discomfort in the jaw.
Treatment We Offer
Our adult patients have been pleased with the results they have seen after using clear aligners. As the name implies, clear aligners are virtually invisible and consist of a series of trays that are used to move the teeth into their proper placement. Patients love that the trays are removable and do not require any food restrictions.
