Embracing Adult Orthodontics

Embracing Adult Orthodontics
Posted on 04/22/2016

Believe it or not, about 25% of our patients at the office of Dr. Lauren Cai are adults. While many adults feel as though their time to get a beautiful smile may have come and gone, this is totally false. We are firm believers in the fact that it is never too late to get the straight and beautiful smile you desire, and hence, we offer a number of treatments that might be more favorable for adults.

There are a number of benefits that come from undergoing orthodontic treatment. Besides the obvious, increased confidence that comes from a beautiful smile, you can also experience the following:

  • Prevention of tooth decay
  • Less likelihood of developing periodontal disease
  • TMJ or TMD pain relief
  • Increased enamel strength

If you are experiencing any symptoms of poor oral hygiene or a lack of confidence due to your smile, please consider the options that we have here at your Longview and Vancouver orthodontics office.

Advancements In Orthodontic Treatments

We know that some adults may fear having traditional metal braces, but do keep in mind that metal braces are now smaller, more discreet, and more effective than ever. There’s a reason why metal braces are still the most popular form of treatment – they work!

We do offer a couple of other options that may be more favorable for adults. Our Longview and Vancouver adult braces options allow our patients to decide between a few different choices. These include:

  • Embracing-Adult-OrthodonticsIncognito Braces – These braces are metal, however, they are installed on the backside of your teeth. These are incredibly effective and incredibly hidden.
  • Clear Braces – We offer Clarity braces, which are made of a translucent material that stands out way less than traditional braces. We recommend these for adults, as they are somewhat fragile and require careful adherence to our recommended care.
  • Invisalign – Invisalign is a great option if you would like a discreet and effective orthodontic treatment. The Invisalign system is made up of a series of clear aligners that are switched out about every two weeks.
