Adult Orthodontic Treatment
Naperville, IL Dentist
Braces are no longer just for kids. The American Association of Orthodontists reports that one out of every five orthodontic patients is now over 18 years old. Tooth alignment can be adjusted at any stage of life, as long as your gums and bone structure are healthy. We provide a range of treatments tailored to different age groups, including adults. The journey to a new smile can begin today!
Orthodontic treatment in later life can significantly enhance your personal appearance and boost self-confidence. It is equally vital for maintaining the health of your teeth and gums. Crooked teeth and misaligned bites may lead to gum and bone loss, tooth decay, abnormal wear on tooth enamel and surfaces, headaches, and jaw joint (TMJ/TMD) pain.
The good news is that we utilize contemporary techniques and appliances that substantially reduce discomfort, decrease the frequency of visits, shorten treatment time, and offer multiple options to choose from. These options may include clear aligner therapy, cosmetic ceramic braces, or metal braces to address most dental concerns.
During your initial examination, we can determine the most suitable treatment for your specific needs. Furthermore, we can outline a tailored treatment plan, estimated treatment duration, and approximate costs.
A significant portion of our patients are adults who all agree that it’s never too late to enhance their most valuable asset – their smile. For more information or to schedule your orthodontic consultation, contact our office.
