It’s Never Too Late for a Confident Smile
Your smile is the first thing other people notice about you. Do you love yours?
You’re never too old to benefit from orthodontic treatment.
Get the Smile You Deserve
Braces aren’t just for kids. Many adults are taking the plunge and enjoying the benefits of orthodontic care no matter their age.
Straight teeth, a healthy bite, and proper tooth alignment make your overall oral health better. There are lots of reasons why adults haven’t had the opportunity to get braces in the past.
With improved aesthetic choices, better technologies, and affordable financing options, it’s the perfect time to treat yourself to a new smile.
Maybe orthodontic treatment is something you have been thinking about for yourself for a long time but instead have focused on braces for your children. Well, now is the time to start thinking about YOU!
Reasons for Adult Orthodontics
Today, adults make up about one in every five orthodontic patients. Here’s why:
Teeth Can Shift
Believe it or not, your teeth don’t stop moving in adolescence. Teeth that seemed straight and aligned in youth could have shifted later in life.
This can lead to jaw pain, trouble brushing, or a smile you’re unhappy with.
Orthodontic treatment can help correct crooked teeth or spaces that you’ve been self-conscious about for years.
It can give you the confidence and pride that come with straight teeth and a great smile.
Maintaining Dental Health
If you leave misaligned teeth untreated, you may end up with other dental problems such as tooth decay and gum disease.
You may also notice difficulty chewing or abnormal wear on the surface of your teeth.
Free Consultations for Adults
Adult consultations are a bit different than our consultations for children and teens. Before deciding on any type of orthodontic treatment, Dr. Diana Esshaki and Dr. Neil Flückiger have to check for any existing issues with your oral health.
Gum diseases can weaken the periodontal tissues, making it much more challenging to move your teeth, so we may recommend a periodontal evaluation to check for any evidence of gum disease.
If you’re in good oral health, we can move forward with orthodontic treatment at New England Orthodontic Specialists. Your consultation is also a great opportunity to ask questions and voice and concerns.
Some of the most common questions include:
- Is orthodontics appropriate for my situation?
- How long will my treatment take?
- How much does treatment cost?
- What type of treatment do I need to correct the problem?
- Will my insurance cover orthodontic treatment?
