What are the orthodontic treatment options for adults?
Though today’s metal braces are a lot more comfortable and attractive than they used to be, they’re not the only choice. At Bird Smiles Orthodontics, we have clear braces too. The ceramic brackets and thin wires blend in with your smile.
However, most adults choose Invisalign®. Dr. Clark and Dr. Talley are highly trained in clear aligner treatment and are leading Invisalign providers. Even if you’ve been told that you weren’t a candidate for Invisalign at another practice, we may be able to help!
Investing in your smile is investing in your health.
Orthodontic treatment will improve your facial appearance and give you a smile you feel good about showing off. Beyond the cosmetic benefits, here are a few other reasons to consider adult orthodontics:
- Straight teeth are easier to clean, reducing your risk of tooth decay and gum disease, as well as the related inflammation.
- Shifting misaligned teeth into place will help you chew and speak properly.
- Creating ideal spacing between the teeth preserves gum health and wards off jawbone loss.
- A healthy bite may alleviate jaw pain, TMJ pain and headaches.
- A beautiful smile gives you a powerful boost in confidence that will have a positive impact on all areas of your life.
