It’s Never Too Late to Get Straight Teeth

Adult Orthodontics

When it comes to a perfect smile, age is only a number. Just because you’re an adult doesn’t mean you can’t get straighter teeth. If the thought of straightening your teeth makes you think of old-fashioned metal braces, you’ll be surprised to know that’s today’s orthodontics have come a long way. Adult orthodontics are virtually undetectable, and provide discreet straightening while you work, sleep, relax, and go about your regular day.

How Do I Know If I’m A Candidate for Adult Orthodontics?

If you’re teeth are overcrowded, crooked, or have gaps between them, or if you suffer from an overbite or underbite, adult orthodontics may be right for you. Even if you’ve had braces when you were younger, your teeth can shift throughout your lifetime, which means you may not retain the straight smile you once had.

If you are currently battling periodontal disease, you may want to wait to get adult orthodontics. Your gums and bones need to be healthy enough to handle the aligning of your teeth.

What Are My Options?

At Desired Dental, we offer a variety of adult orthodontics depending on your timeline and specific needs. We’ll completely change the way you think about straightening your teeth as an adult, with three different methods that provide gentle repositioning of your teeth.

Invisalign: Straighten your teeth with a series of clear, plastic aligners that are customized for your bite and gently readjust your teeth. The aligners are unnoticeable, and you only have to take them out to eat, drink, and brush your teeth.

Six Month Smiles: If you’re in a hurry, consider this innovative adult orthodontics solution which typically takes only about six months to completely straighten teeth by combining the concept of traditional metal braces with tooth-colored wires and brackets that make them discreet.

ClearSmile Aligner: Straighten the front teeth that people see with this clear, removable aligner therapy. We will create a customized treatment plan along with a set of aligners based on precise impressions. The aligners are effective at straightening teeth that are crowded and tilted.
Call us today at Desired Dental and get the straight, sparkling smile you’ve always wanted.
