Braces aren't just for kids anymore. Tooth alignment can be changed at any age as long as your gums and bone structure are healthy. At Spannhake Orthodontics, we offer a variety of treatment options that are designed for different age groups…including adults.
We always enjoy working with adult patients and like the many options that we have in creating great smiles for them. The new techniques and appliances we use greatly reduce discomfort levels, decrease the frequency of visits, and shorten treatment time. Many of our adult patients have traditional metal braces, some have tooth-colored ceramic braces, and many are enjoying the esthetic benefits that Invisalign offers.
Adult orthodontic treatment is particularly helpful in the fight against gum disease. Crowded and crooked teeth are more difficult to clean, contributing to bone loss, receding gums, and cavities. Poorly aligned jaws are known to contribute to TMJ (jaw joint) disorders, breathing problems, speech impediments, and inefficient chewing patterns.
Look Great, Feel Amazing!
Your smile is the first thing that people will notice about you. Simply by correcting crowded teeth, unattractive spaces, protruding teeth, and unbalanced facial profiles you can improve the way that others see you. Most importantly, you can improve the way that you feel about yourself.
