Adult orthodontic treatment
Even minor orthodontic treatment can make a big difference to your smile.
Why is adult orthodontic treatment important?
Looking after our teeth is important at any age – after all, we only get one set of permanent teeth. But our oral hygiene can often fall by the wayside when life gets busy. It’s also common for people to think they can’t change how their teeth look once they’re adults.
The good news is, orthodontic treatment is as effective for adult patients as it is for teenagers.
These days, there is a range of orthodontic treatment options available which are ideal for the working professional. Here are some we use at Bishops Stortford Orthodontics:
- Invisalign – the aligners used in the Invisalign system are virtually invisible. What’s more, they’re removable, which means they can be taken out for client meetings and presentations as well as when you’re eating, brushing and flossing.
- Ceramic braces– based on the method of traditional metal braces, ceramic braces use ceramic brackets which blend in with the colour of your teeth. They won’t stain during the course of treatment either so no-one will know you’re even seeing an orthodontist!
