Did you know that one in four orthodontic patients is an adult? At Altera Orthodontics we work with patients of all ages! With today’s technology, orthodontic treatment is more efficient, more discreet, and less time-consuming. Our treatment plans are customized for each patient, and our caring team is sensitive to the needs of our adult patients. Don't let age stop you from having the straight teeth you've always dreamed of.
A straight, healthy, beautiful smile is within your reach as tooth alignment can be changed at any time. Orthodontic treatment at later stages in life can dramatically improve your personal appearance and self-esteem, as well as the health of your teeth and gums. Leaving misaligned teeth untreated may lead to other dental problems such as tooth decay, gum disease, bone loss, difficulty chewing, TMJ (TMD) pain, and the irregular wear of tooth enamel. Crowding is a common problem in adults – as a result, it may be difficult to keep teeth clean and healthy. Orthodontic treatment creates a harmonious bite, making teeth fit better and decreasing the risk of future dental problems regardless of age.
Though we offer traditional silver braces, you may prefer a less noticeable option like ceramic braces or Invisalign clear aligners. If you are interested in learning more about your orthodontic treatment options, we are here to help! We offer a variety of solutions to suit your specific needs, whether you have never received any orthodontic treatment or are seeking additional correction after prior treatment.
