Orthodontic Treatment Options For Adults
While braces for adults provide great benefits, some adults may be concerned about having easily visible braces. They may also be concerned about how the treatment will affect their busy schedule and everyday life.
Thanks to modern technological advancements, getting braces as an adult is inconspicuous, comfortable, and easy to integrate into any lifestyle. Lund Orthodontics has many types of treatment available to fit your needs, and we can help you select the best adult braces for your needs.
Traditional Metal Braces
While traditional metal braces often get a bad rap for being noticeable, modern braces are sleeker and more comfortable than ever. Traditional metal braces use a system of brackets, wires, and elastic bands that apply pressure on the teeth over time, moving them into the desired alignment.
These braces are similar to their traditional counterparts but are more sleek and lightweight. Self-ligating braces use light pressure to bring your smile into alignment and help you achieve a head-turning smile.
Clear braces work the same as metal braces, except that the brackets are made of a clear ceramic material that blends seamlessly into your teeth’ natural color. Clear ceramic braces are made of high-grade ceramic to provide you with a low-profile treatment.
Invisalign® Clear Aligners
Invisalign aligners are made from a virtually invisible plastic material that is designed especially for your teeth. As an Invisalign Diamond provider, Lund Orthodontics has deep expertise in beautifying smiles with Invisalign clear aligners.
Why Should You Get Braces As An Adult?
Straight teeth are healthy teeth, and regardless of age, adults can still unlock the perks of a happier, healthier smile. Smile misalignments can pose many difficulties for your overall dental health. Crooked teeth cause plaque buildup and increase your risk for tooth decay and periodontal disease. Bite problems can cause stress on your jaw, teeth, or gums, and increase your risk of dental injuries.
While a straight smile does boost your overall confidence, the health benefits of adult braces are well worth it! Discover how adult braces can help you by scheduling a consultation with Lund Orthodontics.
What Else Do I Need To Know About Adult Braces?
Getting braces as an adult is different from orthodontic treatment for teens. Adult teeth are fully developed and do not move as quickly under pressure, so treatment time will vary between patients. It is also important to regularly schedule dental cleanings to help you achieve the results you want. In some cases, patients may need extra attention to care from a specialist.
The team at Lund Orthodontics has helped many adults get the smile they’ve always dreamed about. Schedule a consultation today, and start your smile journey.
