Dr. Cynthia Wong provides orthodontic care for adolescents and adults. It is often recommended to start treatment on an adolescent patient once all the permanent teeth have come in, but adults can still get great results from orthodontic care. There are several options for adults beginning orthodontic treatment, and the best one for you will depend on what needs to be corrected.
To correct bite issues and straighten teeth, the traditional braces method includes brackets on the teeth and connecting wires that are tightened over the course of treatment. Clear braces use the same method but the materials are tooth-colored to avoid a metallic look. Accelerated orthodontics are applied to correct cosmetic issues in about six months. Severe misalignments and bite issues can’t be corrected in such a short time, but if your concerns are purely cosmetic, it’s a great option for a short treatment time that can completely transform your smile. Invisalign treatment is popular because of its almost invisible appearance. A treatment plan consists of a series of clear aligners that straighten teeth over time. Come see us and find out what will be best to correct your smile!
