Am I Too Old for Orthodontic Treatment?

If you’re worried that you missed your chance at achieving a perfectly straight smile once you aged into adulthood, you’re wrong! Orthodontic treatment is not only for teenagers. As an adult, you have several options for obtaining a stunning smile. In this blog post, we’ll cover some of the orthodontic treatments that are popular with our adult patients.

Clear Aligner Therapy

Clear aligner therapy is a discrete and effective way to obtain a straighter smile if you have mild to moderate misalignment. Here at Pleasant Plains Dental, we offer Invisalign® and ClearCorrect®. Both work by using a series of clear trays that gradually guide the teeth into their new, straighter positions determined by your treatment plan. Aligners are removed when you eat and brush your teeth, and don’t have any wires or brackets to keep clean. 

Six Month Smiles

With Six Month Smiles, clear braces and tooth-colored wires are used to move the teeth into place faster than traditional braces. This straightening technique delivers results in just four to nine months!

Traditional Braces

While they may not be as convenient as the methods mentioned above, there’s no arguing with the fact that traditional metal braces are versatile and powerful. They can fix the widest range of misalignment issues. Plus, braces stay put, so there’s no losing them or forgetting to wear them.
