Many adults suffer from crooked teeth or top and bottom teeth that don’t fit properly together. This can exacerbate other issues like TMD, gastrointestinal (problems associated with abnormal chewing), bone and gum disease and low self-esteem, just to name a few. It’s not too late to straighten and correct the alignment of your teeth! Almost 40% of Dr. Emerson’s current patients are adults. As long as you have healthy teeth, gums, and bone, you are probably a candidate for orthodontics!
Many adults are looking for a cosmetic option to align their teeth such as Invisalign aligners. At Esthetique, we offer Invisalign, but the majority of our patients are looking for something even more discrete and choose our Incognito braces that are hidden behind the teeth. With hidden treatment available, there has never been a better time to achieve a beautiful smile and take steps to protecting the health and longevity of your teeth.
Advancements in Incognito Hidden Braces
- Incognito is in their 4th generation of bracket. The newest upgrade is brackets that are 60% thinner, meaning much closer to the tooth. For the patient that means less tongue irritation. For the doctor that means better control of the tooth with the wire which leads to better results in less time.
- We will soon be using an intra-oral scanner starting in January. We no longer need to take gooey impressions of people’s mouths in order to make the custom braces. We scan the teeth (takes less than 2 minutes) and email the file to Incognito. No impressions cuts down the construction time of the braces by over a week. So, you are more comfortable with the process and on to straighter teeth faster.
