Adult Orthodontics: It's Never Too Late for a Perfect Smile!
Discreet and Effective Options for Adult OrthodonticsA common concern we hear from our adult patients is that they don’t want people to know they have braces. While there was a time when there would have been no way around this, modern technology allows us to offer several discreet options when it comes to adult orthodontics, including:
- Damon Clear - This clear option combines tieless braces with high-tech arch wires. Resistant to both stains and discolouration, Damon Clear braces also require fewer adjustments than standard braces, meaning you’ll see fantastic results with fewer trips to the orthodontist.
- Invisalign - The most discreet adult orthodontic treatment available, the only people who will know you’re wearing Invisalign will be you and your orthodontist! Invisalign uses custom-shaped trays that subtly adjust your teeth, giving you a beautiful smile with ease. Best of all, your Invisalign trays can be removed when you’re eating, so you never have to worry about having food stuck in your appliance.
The Health Benefits of Adult OrthodonticsChoosing adult orthodontics is about more than just having the perfect smile you’ve always wanted. There are a number of issues that adult orthodontics can successfully treat, including:
- Abnormal tooth placement
- Bite issues (overbites, underbites, crossbites, etc.)
- Excessive spacing
- Straight teeth are less likely to suffer from decay
- Straight teeth are less susceptible to gum disease
- A properly aligned bite can prevent tooth damage
- A properly aligned bite can relieve tension and muscle strain in your jaw and neck
