Worried that you missed your chance to straighten your smile? Let us put your mind at ease! Our orthodontists in Fort Wayne, IN, and surrounding areas are accepting patients of all ages. They’re also dedicated to making sure you achieve the smile of your dreams, whether that’s through dental braces or Invisalign® clear aligners. It’s never too late to consider adult orthodontics.
In fact, here are some of the main benefits of seeking adult orthodontic treatment. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to give us a call. We’d be more than happy to help!
Want straighter teeth, but hate the look of traditional metal braces? Ask our orthodontists if you’re a candidate for Invisalign aligners. During Invisalign treatment, we use a series of clear aligners to move your teeth little by little into their optimal positions.
In general, we don’t recommend Invisalign clear aligners for children. This is because our younger patients often lack the motivation to consistently wear their aligners for 20 to 22 hours per day. When patients don’t wear aligners as recommended by our orthodontists, they fall behind on their treatment plans.
The good news is that adults often have the willpower to wear their aligners and complete Invisalign treatment successfully. If you’re interested in Invisalign aligners for your smile, call Parrish Orthodontics to set up a consultation with one of our orthodontists.
If you’re not interested in clear aligners, consider clear ceramic braces instead! During your initial consultation, our orthodontists will be able to determine if you’re a candidate for adult braces. They’ll also walk you through every step of the process for adult orthodontics so you know what to expect.
One of the main benefits of choosing ceramic braces is that they’re more discreet than their traditional metal counterparts. This can help you feel more confident while undergoing adult orthodontics, especially if you’re going to school or have a public-facing job.
Just because you didn’t get orthodontic treatment as a child or teenager, doesn’t mean you have to forever live with crooked teeth. Our orthodontists would be more than happy to help you explore your treatment options so you can make an informed decision for your smile.
Crooked and/or crowded teeth affect more than just the aesthetics of your smile. They can also impact your self-esteem and oral health. For this reason, we always recommend that adults seek orthodontic treatment as soon as they are able. That way, we can correct the alignment of their teeth and jaws, paving the way for improved oral health in the future.
