At Jensen Orthodontics Inc., we have several different options for our patients of all ages considering braces in Darthmouth, allowing for an orthodontic treatment that best suits the individual needs of each patient. We offer a variety of treatments that are designed for different age groups – including adults. Your options may include metal braces, translucent braces, or transparent aligners that can be worn to improve mild cases of misaligned teeth.
While many people have corrective orthodontic procedures done early in their lives, it is not uncommon for adults and even seniors to undergo orthodontic treatments. In fact, currently almost 20% of all orthodontic patients are adults. At first the idea of braces as an adult may seem unaesthetic or uncomfortable. Among the most common complaints when dealing with orthodontic treatment is that braces are unaesthetic and unattractive, especially from our adult patients. In order to address this issue, we offer our patients invisible braces. This allows us to straighten your teeth by using a series of clear, customized, removable appliances called aligners. They are virtually undetectable, so hardly anyone will realize you’re wearing them. These aligners are designed to move your teeth in small steps to the desired final position prescribed by your doctor. Of course, we also offer traditional braces in Darthmouth that utilize brackets and wires to gradually fix your malocclusion. They also come in clear and a variety of color and material choices. We can in many cases place ceramic or translucent braces which are much less noticeable. In addition to this, in some cases, we may even place the braces on the lingual (inner side) of the teeth so that they are nearly invisible. Other appliances include colorful bands, elastics, and retainers. Ask the office staff about what options are available.
Orthodontics isn’t just for kids, and you’re never too old to start smiling your most beautiful smile yet. Orthodontic treatment at later stages in life can dramatically improve your personal appearance and self-esteem. Improving the health of your teeth and gums is equally important at every age. So if you’re looking to straighten your teeth, whether for cosmetic or medical purposes, then you should call Jensen Orthodontics Inc. today to schedule an appointment. Our office will be more than happy to discuss the varied options for your Darthmouth braces, and help you decide which style is right for you.
