Today, many of the patients our Merced orthodontics practice serves are adults. The reason for this is that an increasing number of adults have realized the many social and professional benefits that come with investing in smile makeovers. And, more and more adults appreciate that there are now more discreet choices in orthodontic appliances like clear braces and translucent aligners that don’t involve wearing highly visible metal braces that are often associated with kids.
If you’re an adult who is embarrassed to smile broadly because you’re unhappy with your teeth due to them being crooked, gapped, crowded or misaligned, now is a great time to visit your local Fresno and Merced orthodontists for an evaluation! Maybe you’re one of the many people who wore braces as a kid and stopped wearing your retainer, which resulted in your teeth shifting back to where they were when you started treatment. Whatever your personal reason, undergoing orthodontic treatment as an adult is an excellent way to finally get the straight and beautiful smile you deserve.
Our Adult Treatment Options
At Orthodontics Exclusively, we offer adults several types of orthodontic appliances including:
Modern Metal Braces
Today’s metal braces are less bulky and more attractive than the metal braces used in the past. The metal braces we use are made of high grade stainless steel and the brackets are smaller and more comfortable than ever before. If you don’t mind wearing visible metal brackets and wires on your teeth, these braces may be perfect for you.
The clear braces we offer consist of brackets made of a translucent ceramic material that blends in perfectly with your teeth. These braces are very discreet except for the thin wire that runs through the brackets.
Invisalign consists of a series of finely calibrated clear, removable aligners that fit snugly over the teeth to move the teeth gradually, step-by-step. Treatment with Invisalign is not only very discreet but it’s also highly convenient as you can continue enjoying all your favorite foods while never having to fuss over whether or not you’re doing a good enough job of brushing and flossing. Instead, you simply take the aligners out when eating and when cleaning your teeth.
Although you may be nervous or apprehensive about undergoing orthodontic treatment as an adult, you should not let those feelings stop you from talking with us. A routine consultation will clear up any concerns you may have and provide you with the information you need to make an informed decision regarding the best course of treatment for you. Regardless of your particular situation, undergoing orthodontic treatment as an adult can provide you with a big boost of confidence and a beautiful and healthy smile you can enjoy for the rest of your life!
