Braces aren't just for kids anymore. The fact is you are never too old for the confidence that comes with a beautiful smile. Moreover, with all the benefits to your dental and oral health, undergoing orthodontic treatment can add to your life in variety of ways.
At Choice Orthodontics, we are proud to provide a wide array of orthodontic treatment options designed for every age group, including adults. From the many types of braces we offer, to less traditional orthodontic innovations like Invisalign, we will work with you to achieve the smile you’ve always wanted.
A Healthier You
While Dr. Lauren Windhorst has helped countless patients earn their straight smiles at our Saint Joseph and Gallatin, MO practice, she also takes pride in the improved health that goes along with those magnificent new grins.
Improving the health of your teeth and gums is an equally important aspect of orthodontic treatment, especially for adults. This is because, if left untreated, crooked teeth and a bad bite can contribute to:
- Gum and bone loss
- Tooth decay
- Abnormal wear of tooth enamel
- And jaw joint (TMJ/TMD) pain
Advances in Orthodontic Treatment
Some adult patients might be weary about the exertion involved with undergoing teeth-straightening treatment with an orthodontist later in life. But, in truth, there is nothing to fear. The new orthodontic techniques and appliances utilized at our Saint Joseph and Gallatin, MO practice greatly reduce discomfort levels, decrease the frequency of visits, and shorten treatment times.
There are several options to choose from when it comes to adult orthodontic treatment, such as:
- Metal Braces
- Porcelain (Clear) Braces
- Clear Aligners, like Invisalign
During your initial examination at our Saint Joseph or Gallatin, MO office, your orthodontist will be able to determine the best treatment to meet your individual needs. Following, Dr. Windhorst can provide you with an outline of your treatment plan, and also an estimate for expected treatment time and approximate cost.
