Yes, adults need orthodontic treatment, too. It’s not just kids. If you’re seeking out gentle, expert care, you’ve come to the right place. At the practice of Richard C. Kardovich DDS, PC, we offer both traditional metal braces and Invisalign, so no matter what your needs and preferences, or budget, you’ll find the solution that is ideal for you.
The most obvious difficulty that improperly aligned teeth lead to is cosmetic. Your smile simply doesn’t look as good when it’s crooked or otherwise not positioned ideally. There’s more to consider than that, though. Your teeth are harder to floss between efficiently, which puts you at greater risk of tooth decay and gum disease, along with consequences of them. There may also be discomfort and your bite (occlusion) could end up out of sync. Our adult orthodontics Coram is designed to steadily move your teeth into a more perfect position. Metal braces are still the best choice for particularly challenging cases, or if you are budget conscious. On the other hand, if your concern is about aesthetics, you might want to consider Invisalign. This system of aligners is made of clear plastic. They cannot be seen, so no one other than you has to know that you’re getting treatment from our adult orthodontics Coram. Invisalign also tends to do the job more quickly, with an average time of 11 months. You can remove your aligners when you eat, brush, and, floss. Therefore, there are no restrictions on the foods you’re allowed to eat. Plus, your oral hygiene will be easier. Finally, there are no adjustments with Invisalign. You wear a new set of aligners every two weeks, so only one visit every six weeks is needed to assess your progress.
Whichever method you decide on, our adult orthodontics Coram is your answer for getting straighter teeth. Contact our office to set up appointment so you can come in for a consultation and examination.
