Adult Orthodontics

Orthodontic treatment is no longer just for teens. If you’re thinking about orthodontic treatment as an adult, you’re not alone. In fact, the American Association of Orthodontists states that one in five orthodontic patients is an adult. 

Many adults  are choosing to receive treatment because they understand the importance of maintaining their health, and they want to feel better about their appearance. That’s why Dr. Vaught and Dr. Kate work to make adult orthodontics a central portion of our office. Let us help you receive that smile you’ve always dreamed of.

Why Adults Consider Orthodontic Treatment:

  • A bad bite or malocclusion, causing teeth to fit together incorrectly
  • Teeth are crowded or spaced apart (gaps), possibly leading to tooth decay or gum disease
  • Abnormal jaw pain or pressure that is caused by crooked teeth
  • The desire for a healthier mouth and a more confident smile

Treatment Options for Adults

For many adults, the thought of having metal braces is enough to discourage them from receiving treatment. However, today’s orthodontic treatment options offer a variety of braces and appliances that are comfortable, aesthetic, and customized to meet your needs. Types of braces include:

  • Invisalign
  • Esthetic Rhodium Braces
  • Traditional Metal Braces

Why Should You Consider Orthodontic Treatment

STRAIGHT TEETH ARE HEALTHY TEETH– Teeth that are properly aligned are easier to keep clean with flossing and brushing, and may help prevent other health problems.
A BEAUTIFUL, STRAIGHT SMILE BUILDS CONFIDENCE– Orthodontic treatment can help boost your self-confidence, giving you a better quality of life and the freedom to smile without holding back!
MOUTHS LEFT UNTREATED CAN GET WORSE– Not receiving orthodontic treatment when it’s needed can create long-term health issues costing you more in the end.
