More adults are realizing that orthodontic treatment is not just for kids. Orthodontics can help improve the aesthetics and health of a smile at any age. You are never too old to correct crooked teeth and misaligned jaws. Correcting your bite will create a balanced mouth and a healthy bite. Reducing your risk of gum disease. Chronic periodontitis affects 47.2% of adults in the U.S. in addition to the clinical benefits adults are wanting to invest in a beautiful healthy smile.
Common reasons adults choose to get braces:
- Enhanced self-confidence
- Improved occlusal (bite) function & less chance for enamel chipping & wear patterns.
- Crossbite Correction
- Increased oral hygiene efficiency & therefore reduced chance for gingivitis & decay
- Reduced risk of injury to protruding front teeth
- Aid in optimizing other dental treatment
- Guidance of teeth into more favorable positions.
Orthodontic treatment does not always have to be metal. With today’s technology we are able to offer several different options. Dr. Lupini offers invisible clear braces, ceramic braces and clear aligners (Invisalign® alternatives). Ceramic braces use brackets that may be white or clear and are made from high-quality ceramics that are stronger and look more natural and less obvious to others.
