Orthodontic Treatment For Adults
Although traditionally considered an approach for children and teens, more and more adults are turning to the magic of orthodontics
Because the facial bones are fully developed, orthodontic work for adults is exclusively used to correct tooth alignment, the ultimate goal being a flawless smile.
Adult braces can correct tooth alignment issues stemming back to childhood, or that has resulted from tooth loss or gum complications.
We’ll discuss your concerns, needs and goals, before determining the most appropriate treatment solution for your specific circumstances.
It is a source of much joy amongst the iSmile Studio team to witness the positive impact of orthodontic treatment on our adult clients, not only when it comes to their physical appearance, but also their self-confidence. Now that really is something to smile about!
What orthodontia devices do you offer?
We offer a range of orthodontic treatments for adults and teenagers, from traditional braces to more discreet Invisalign systems. Our treatments are tailored specifically to your lifestyle, facial structure and smile goals to ensure results that benefit your oral health as well as your overall wellbeing.
Am I too old for braces?
Absolutely not! You’re never too old to create a smile that you can feel confident wearing. If you’re concerned about the appearance of traditional braces, we offer discreet, nearly invisible alternatives that you can wear with none the wiser.
What are the benefits of adult orthodontics?
Not only do orthodontics straighten your teeth so that you can enjoy a perfect and confident smile, but they can also improve your oral and overall health and wellbeing so that you can enjoy a higher quality of life.
Are there any side effects I should be aware of?
Orthodontic work for adults is completely safe and virtually pain-free. The most common side effects include minor irritation on the cheeks, lips and tongue, mild discomfort and a slight sensitivity to pressure for the first few days after treatment begins. These can easily be alleviated with over-the-counter pain medication and dental wax
How soon will I see results?
Treatment lengths can vary greatly from 6-month Invisalign treatment plans for minor cosmetic corrections to up to two years for more intensive procedures. No matter how long it takes to create your dream smile, we’re here for you every step of the way!
What should I expect during my consultation?
We’ll begin with a thorough examination and discuss your smile goals, lifestyle, needs, oral health, facial features and structure, and overall wellbeing. Together, we’ll discuss the treatment plans that would be the most beneficial and require the least intervention while still achieving your goals. We’ll be sure to provide you with all the information you need to make an informed decision about what’s best for your body, smile and overall health. Our goal is to have you smiling ear-to-ear by the time we’re done!
