At RJ Orthodontics, we have built our reputation on providing superior orthodontic care to every patient, regardless of age. While most people think of teenagers and preteens when the term “orthodontics” is used, many adults also come to us when they are looking for ways to improve their smiles.
We understand that adults may have some reservations when it comes to getting braces. But rest assured we strive to make the process of your orthodontic treatment as comfortable and convenient as possible by providing a variety of options beyond traditional braces, for example, Invisalign.
Is It Too Late to Seek Treatment?
No one is ever too old to improve his or her smile and self-confidence, so there is no reason to feel embarrassed about seeking orthodontic treatment in your adult years. Dr. RJ has a great deal of experience treating adult patients. Moreover, in addition to helping your teeth look better, seeking adult orthodontic treatment can improve your dental functionality and health. As such, it is well worth the investment.
Which Type of Treatment Should You Choose?
We don’t believe in taking a one-size-fits-all approach to orthodontic care, so you can rest assured that any treatment we recommend for you will be based on your unique orthodontic needs. Depending on the condition of your teeth, your budgetary restraints, and your individual preferences, when you visit us in our Austin, TX orthodontist office we may recommend one of the following treatment options:
One of the most discreet teeth-straightening systems available is Invisalign®. Invisalign is designed to be practically invisible. Additionally, Invisalign minimizes discomfort since each aligner is completely smooth and does not have the brackets and wires of traditional braces. If you are interested in straightening your teeth efficiently, comfortably, and discreetly, Invisalign may just be the path for you.
Unlike traditional braces that have silver brackets, clear braces are a bit less noticeable because the brackets are made from clear ceramic material.
This type of braces can be placed entirely behind your teeth so that they are not visible at all when you smile.
Ideal for those who value discretion and may need only minor teeth corrections, the Myobrace only needs to be worn while sleeping and for a couple of hours each day.
Designed with self-ligating technology that removes the need for traditional orthodontic elastics, these braces are comfortable and capable of inspiring shorter treatment times.
This special orthodontic mouthpiece can be easily removed as needed and is designed to accelerate treatment time when utilized in conjunction with an existing orthodontic treatment like braces. AcceleDent helps move teeth more rapidly through the use of small pulses and vibrations.
Not all orthodontics treatment options are right for everyone, so we would be happy to sit down with you and help you choose the ideal treatment option for your orthodontic needs.
