Dr. Chad is committed to providing our adult patients with the most advanced and comprehensive treatment available. Braces aren’t just for kids anymore! Today in the US, one out of every five patients in orthodontic treatment is over 21 years old. We offer a variety of treatments that are designed for different age groups–including adults! Invisalign, or clear aligners, is especially popular with our adults.
Orthodontic treatment at later stages in life can dramatically improve your image. Improving the health of your teeth and gums is equally important. Crooked teeth and a bad bite can contribute to gum and bone loss, tooth decay, abnormal wear of the tooth enamel and surfaces, headaches, and sometimes jaw joint (TMJ/TMD) pain.
We have experience working with adult patients and the special considerations they sometimes need. Often adults seek an orthodontist for help in preparation for more extensive dental work, which may include making room for dental implants or veneers. Dr. Chad will work with you and your family dentist to enhance the cosmetic and functional use of your teeth, so that you can have the best smile that modern dentistry can predictably provide.
Good news! The new techniques and appliances we use greatly reduce discomfort levels, decrease the frequency of visits, shorten treatment time and may allow you to choose from several options. Your options may include metal braces, ceramic translucent braces, or even transparent aligners to improve mild-moderate cases of misaligned teeth.
During the initial examination, we will be able to determine the best possible treatment for your individual needs. During this initial examination, we can outline the treatment plan, time of treatment expected, and the treatment cost.
