Braces Aren’t Just For Kids Anymore…
If your gums and bone structure are in good health, tooth alignment can be changed at any age. We offer a variety of adult treatment and teen treatment options that are designed with each age group in mind. Crooked teeth and bad bites can contribute to bone loss, gum loss, tooth decay, abnormal wear of enamel, headaches, and jaw joint (TMJ/TMD) pain. Orthodontic treatment at later stages in life can prevent further damage and dramatically improve your personal appearance and self-esteem.
Reduced discomfort & shorter treatment times
There have never been so many options for tooth alignment treatments as there are today. Through the use of newer technologies and systems like Invisalign® and Empower® brackets, patient discomfort levels, frequency of visits, and treatment times can be greatly reduced. Additionally, with the advent of options like ceramic braces, clear self-litigating brackets, and Invisalign®, overall cosmetic appearance of braces during treatment have been drastically improved.
Adult & Teen Treatment Options
Whether you are looking for greater comfort, better cosmetic appearance, and/or shorter treatment times, Dr. Lewis & Dr. Mansour can help you achieve your goals with the following options for modern treatment:
Treatment options Include:
- Modern Metal Braces – The most common treatment option
- Ceramic Braces – Clear brackets provide better cosmetic appearance than metal brackets
- Empower® Braces – Metal or Clear self-litigating brackets allow for reduced overall treatment time.
- Invisalign® – No brackets or wires. Instead, custom clear aligners are used.
- Permanent & Removable Retainers – Keep your teeth in their new perfect position
