Adult Treatment

Adult Treatment

adulttreatmentBraces aren’t just for kids and teens. Tooth alignment can be changed at any age if your gums and bone structure are healthy. We offer a variety of treatments that are designed for all age groups. Currently almost 20% of our practice consists of adult patients who range from their early 20s to their 70s. So anytime is right to make that change with you smile you’ve always dreamed about!

Orthodontic treatment at any stage in life can dramatically improve your personal appearance and self-esteem. Improving the health of your teeth, gums and bite is equally important. Crooked teeth and a bad bite can contribute to gum and bone loss, abnormal wear of the tooth enamel and surfaces, and jaw joint (TMJ) pain.

Good news! The superior techniques and appliances we use reduce discomfort levels, decrease the frequency of visits, and shorten treatment time. You may also have several treatment options to select from to help improve your bite.

During the initial examination, you and Dr. Pollei will discuss the various treatment options and determine which best fits your individual needs. During this initial examination, we can outline the treatment plan, time of treatment expected and the approximate cost.

As we said, many of our patients are adults, and they agree that it’s never too late to improve their greatest asset – their smile.
