What are My Options for Orthodontics as an Adult?
- Posted on: May 20 2011
The consequences of an uneven or crooked smile for an adult are much greater than those for a teenager. In addition to increased feelings of awkwardness, an incorrect bite can lead to several painful symptoms such as headaches and jaw misalignment. For most adults, the thought of having traditional, metal braces is not very appealing. Even newer, less visible braces can decrease self-confidence and make social situations uncomfortable.
At Galleria Dental Aesthetics, our experienced cosmetic dentists know how difficult it can be to live with both the pain of orthodontic problems and the emotional stress of their traditional fixes. We are pleased to offer our patients new and exciting ways to correct orthodontic issues without the use of obvious braces.
Our doctors can correct a wide range of orthodontic issues with Invisalign®. Using a progressive series of clear, removable aligners, Invisalign® can correct problems including:
- Crowded teeth
- Unevenly spaced teeth
Because the aligners are removable, you can take them out for cleaning, eating, and when social and business situations deem it necessary. Best of all, this process takes about half the time of traditional braces.
