Are there orthodontic treatment options for adults?
Adult orthodontic treatment has become more convenient and comfortable in the past few years. If you never had the opportunity as a child to receive orthodontic care or desire to improve your bite, Zaidi Orthodontics is here to help guide you on this journey. Dr. Zaidi’s extensive training makes her uniquely qualified in the management and treatment planning of complex orthodontic and restorative problems.
What are a few common reasons why adults consider braces?
- A bad bite or malocclusion, causing teeth to fit together incorrectly
- Teeth are crowded or spaced apart, possibly leading to tooth decay or gum disease
- Abnormal jaw pain or pressure that is caused by crooked teeth
- A desire for a healthier mouth and a more confident smile
What are the treatment options for adults at Zaidi Orthodontics?
For many adults, the thought of having metal braces is enough to discourage them from receiving treatment. However, today's orthodontic treatment options offer a variety of braces and appliances that are comfortable, aesthetic, and customized to meet your needs. Types of braces include:
- Clear ceramic braces
- Self-ligating braces
- Invisible aligners
We at Zaidi orthodontics recognize that adults and children have different needs, and require a different level of attention and care. We will work with you to ensure that you receive the most appropriate treatments and that your needs are met with understanding and respect from us.
Why should you consider orthodontic treatment?
- Straight teeth are healthy teeth — Teeth that are properly aligned are easier to keep clean with flossing and brushing and may help prevent other health problems.
- A beautiful, straight smile builds confidence — Orthodontic treatment can help boost your self-confidence, giving you a better quality of life and the freedom to smile without holding back!
- Mouths left untreated can get worse — Not receiving orthodontic treatment when it's needed can create long-term health issues costing you more in the end.
