Many people still believe the braces only suitable for kids and teenagers. That belief is quickly changing, as more and more adults are beginning treatment, and more discreet options are available! Adult braces have become increasingly common, and thanks to innovations in the orthodontic industry, there are many different types of adult treatments including discreet braces and Invisalign. Learn more about the benefits and adult orthodontic treatment options below!
Tooth alignment constantly changes as gums and bone structure continue to develop and shift. Orthodontic treatment at later stages in life can dramatically improve your personal appearance and self-esteem as well as the health of your teeth and gums. Crooked teeth and a misaligned bite contribute to gum and bone loss, tooth decay, abnormal wear of the tooth enamel and surfaces, headaches, and jaw joint (TMJ/TMD) pain. At Mashouf Orthodontics, we offer a variety of treatments that are designed specifically for adults to improve appearance and oral health!
New techniques and appliances greatly reduce discomfort levels, decrease the frequency of visits, and shorten treatment time. Treatment options include Damon braces, Invisalign clear aligners, lingual braces, and conventional braces. .
During the initial examination, we will determine and discuss the best possible treatment for your individual needs. During your consultation, we can outline the treatment plan, time of treatment expected and the approximate cost.
