As adults, straight smiles are important to us. Not only do they look great, but straight teeth also help us have healthier smiles. After all, properly aligned teeth are less prone to gum disease, tooth decay and premature wear. But as an adult, what options do we have to straighten our smiles?
It’s never too late to benefit from straighter teeth. At Hammond Pond Dental Group we offer two types of adult braces:
Made of completely clear plastic, Invisalign uses comfortable aligners that move your teeth without brackets and wires. The aligners can be removed for meals and home care. Wear them all day long and hardly anyone will even know you have something over your smile unless you tell them that you do. Wear your aligners for two weeks and then swap them out for the next set to progress your tooth movement.
Some of our patients have more complex misalignment needs. That’s why we also offer traditional braces that are made of clear, ceramic brackets. With traditional orthodontic techniques we can assist in moderate to severe bite irregularities in a shorter period of time. The low-profile clear appliances prevent your braces from interfering with your appearance.
Lingual braces are essentially the same thing as conventional braces – but hidden on the inside of your smile! That way you can correct your significant smile needs without anyone ever seeing your braces.
At Hammond Pond Dental Group, we have a licensed orthodontist as a part of our dental care team. That way you can enjoy all of your oral health services in one convenient location, without compromising the quality of your care.
