Braces for adults? You bet!
Perhaps you were unable to receive orthodontic treatment as a child and you’ve been struggling with dental issues for many years, or maybe you decided to invest a little time and resources into giving yourself the perfect smile you’ve always dreamed of. As long as your teeth, bones and gums are healthy and cared for, Schalo Orthodontics can help you achieve your goals.
During your initial visit, Dr. Schalo and his team will take the time to discuss your needs and goals, develop a treatment plan and timeframe, and talk about payment and finance options.
If you’re concerned about appearance during your treatment, never fear. There are a number of different options, and based on your needs and end result goals, we will determine the type of braces that work best for you.
Metal Braces – These braces are most common. They are made from stainless steel and attached to the front of the teeth. Many improvements have been made to this treatment over the years and even this traditional method has become sleeker and less noticeable.
Clear Ceramic Braces – These braces are similar to the structure of the traditional stainless steel. However, they are designed to blend with the natural color of your teeth.
Lingual (or concealed) Braces – These are hidden brackets placed behind the teeth, instead of the front.
“Invisible” Braces – The newest and most popular form of adult treatment, these braces are a series of transparent, customized, removable mouthpieces called aligners. They are almost undetectable and are removed when the patient eats, avoiding the hassle of food getting stuck. This is a great option for our clients experiencing mild spacing problems.
Every smile is beautiful, but we all know that straight teeth and an aligned jaw give people a confidence that is undeniable. You don’t need to wait any longer to have the smile you’ve always wanted!
