Orthodontic treatment can be successful at any age, and adults especially appreciate the benefits of a beautiful smile. In fact, one in every five patients in orthodontic treatment is over 21. Orthodontic treatment in adults is used for many reasons including:
- Creating straighter, more confident smiles
- Making cleaning easier, therefore reducing future dental problems
- Preparing the teeth for restorations such as bridges, implants, and veneers by a cosmetic dentist
- Reducing tooth wear and gum problems by correcting the bite
The following video highlights some of the above situations.
Many adults have avoided orthodontic treatment for fear of appearing like a teenager. At Emerson Orthodontics, we have you covered! As Oklahoma’s only Center of Excellence, we have been discretely giving adults great smiles and bites for the last 7 years using Incognito Braces. Incognito are custom, completely hidden braces that discretely correct your smile. Incognito can handle everything from 4-6 month tune-ups for adults that lost their retainer 15 years ago, to complex, full adult orthodontic cases.
