People of any age can benefit from adult orthodontic treatment
If your teeth protrude, or are crowded, crooked or spaced unevenly, it affects the way your look and feel and how your teeth function. Adult Orthodontic treatment not only perfects your smile…it benefits your health as well.
iSmiles Orthodontics, your Irvine Orthodontist, offers a full roster of Adult Braces treatments specifically designed for adults that will give you a dramatically different smile, healthy gums, and a healthier bite. They can also help you manage more serious issues, including bite problems that can cause jaw pain.
Truth is, a generation ago people didn’t always keep their teeth much less straighten them. Today, people want their teeth to look as good as possible whether they’re 20, 30, 45, or 80! They understand that a great smile makes a contribution to their success, whether they’re on the job, on a date, or out to dinner with a friend. And who knew there would be dating sites for seniors?
Adult Braces treatment is a bit different than treatment for children and teens. You will be given the same full evaluation before orthodontic treatment begins, but it will target other issues more common to adults – in addition to simply straightening the teeth. These include:
- Periodontal disease
- Gum recession
- Jaw disorders such as TMD (temporomandibular disorder)
- Missing, broken or excessively worn teeth.
If you have worn braces as a kid, you’ll also noticed a lot of innovations and change.
- Treatment plans are highly customized to ensure they meet your goals.
- Traditional Fixed Braces are much smaller, easier to maintain, and can be designed so they are barely noticeable. . .even when a friend is standing up close!
- Office visits are more streamlined with virtually no waiting time.
- You could also be an excellent candidate for the Invisalign® Treatment System where you can skip the wires and brackets for custom designed and fabricated clear plastic aligners that can be removed when you eat, brush and floss.
As Irvine’s Invisalign® Premier Provider, iSmiles Orthodontics, your Irvine Orthodontist has over 10 years experience treating a broad range of orthodontic problems, including severe spacing and crowding, using the Invisalign system.
In the end, you will gain self-esteem because you finally have the smile you always wanted. You may notice improvements in your ability to speak, bite and chew, and your trips to the dentist are more enjoyable since straight teeth makes it easier to remove plaque. In the long run, adult orthodontic treatments also reduce bone loss, protect tooth surfaces from excess wear, and even helps prevent periodontal disease.
Your first step is setting up a Complimentary iSmiles Consultation that begins with a tour of our state-of-the-art Irvine Orthodontic facility, and ends with a complete oral exam using the iTero Digital Impression System that takes highly accurate digital impressions of your teeth and jaw. Within minutes you will see 3D images of what your teeth look like now, and how’ll they will look once your treatment is completed.
