Achieve Your Dream Smile With Braces For Adults
It’s never too late to get the smile you’ve always wanted. Gone are the days when being an adult is seen as a barrier to receiving orthodontic treatment. In fact, 25-30% of today’s orthodontic patients are adults. Misalignment, jaw pain from crooked teeth or frequent decay caused by overcrowding are problems that can be easily solved. At Garlock Orthodontics, we use state-of-the-art technology to gently reposition the teeth in the most efficient and aesthetically pleasing way possible to transform your smile completely. In addition, we offer a variety of treatment methods that won’t have you holding your hand over your mouth in embarrassment or missing out on fun activities because of discomfort!
Dr. Garlock, having treated himself as an adult, fully understands any reservations or anxiety you may have about orthodontic treatment. Based on his own experience, Dr. Garlock has made a concerted effort to ensure that you have the best and most comfortable smile journey.
Why Would I Want Or Need Braces As An Adult?
It’s important to remember that you’re never too old to go through orthodontic treatment! At Garlock Orthodontics, we’ve effectively treated adult patients of all ages. Today’s technologies and clinical studies provide multiple treatment options and possibilities for our adult patients. If you’re nervous about having metal showing on your teeth, don’t be! Multiple esthetic options are available to give you a more discreet and natural smile throughout treatment.
There are several cosmetic and functional benefits that our adult patients enjoy. Crowded teeth can be challenging to clean, making it easier to get cavities, gum disease, and periodontal disease. At times, patients already have had significant damage to the bone around their teeth, and by moving them to a better location, the prognosis of the tooth is improved. We often team up with your dentist and other dental specialists to plan and prepare specific sites for crowns, bridges, or implants. Also, patients who are having jaw pain due to misaligned jaws and teeth can benefit from orthodontic treatment. Whatever the reason may be, your smile will always be amazing, filling you with confidence.
How Much Do Braces Cost?
The cost of treatment depends on the severity of the problems, length of treatment, type of treatment, insurance, etc. At your free consultation, our treatment coordinator will go over all your options and work with you to determine a customized plan that fits both your treatment goals and budget.
