These days, no one wants to wear metal braces. They’re effective but unsightly. Fortunately, there are new ways to straighten teeth that don’t involve any metal at all. And since you can choose to straighten your teeth at any age, you can choose more discreet options.
Orthodontic treatments for adolescents are actually easier because their bones and teeth aren’t quite set yet. They’re more easily moved into position. Adult orthodontics is more involved and may take longer, as long as two years, to achieve the desired results.
As an adult, your orthodontic treatment needs to straighten your teeth while remaining unobtrusive. You have a work life and home life you do not want metal braces to disrupt. But properly aligned teeth offer much greater health benefits than a more attractive smile. These benefits include:
Your CitiDental orthodontist may recommend an orthodontic treatment that aligns your teeth and enhances your overall dental health. And since your family dentist is also a trained cosmetic dentist, you get results that promote both health and attractiveness.
Your orthodontic dentist at CitiDental offers several methods of teeth straightening. But discuss them thoroughly before making up your mind, as they may not all be a good fit for your needs, your goals or your budget. Common orthodontic treatment options include:
Talk to your Queens dentist about the orthodontic treatment that’s right for you. You may have to consider your budget, too, since your dental insurance may not cover the whole cost. But CitiDental has made a commitment to deliver affordable dentistry whenever possible.
It doesn’t matter if your adolescent or you want straighter teeth. Anyone whose teeth have shifted, grown in crooked or developed incorrectly can get clear braces to straighten teeth invisibly. You must be in good health, which includes your teeth and gums. If your dentist indicates that you need any other treatments, you must have them done before you start your orthodontic treatment. These preliminary treatments may include:
Adults who had braces as a teen may still want additional teeth straightening years later. Your mouth and jaw may have developed in a way that’s not optimal since you had your braces. Adult orthodontics can help you recover your smile in an invisible way that better fits your adult lifestyle, even if you’re in the public eye.
When you visit the orthodontic experts at CitiDental, your mouth is examined. Deciding on clear braces or Invisalign retainers must come after a conversation and evaluation with your dentist. You need to understand the commitment you’re accepting when you opt for adult orthodontics. So take the first step toward straighter teeth by contacting CitiDental in Queens.
