Adult orthodontic treatment is more popular than ever before. With invisible aligners, clear braces or braces placed behind the teeth (Incognito braces), patients of all ages can reap the benefits of an attractive smile and healthy bite. Whether it’s avoiding a lifetime of crooked or crowded teeth or simply improving your self-confidence, orthodontic treatment can change lives.
Here’s what one of our patients (and fellow dental specialists) had to say about the process of going through orthodontic treatment as and adult.
“I’ve always been self conscious about not having straight teeth, especially as a dental professional. Deciding to go through with braces as an adult was a big undertaking, especially with all of the appliances I wore, but it was SO worth the absolutely beautiful smile that I have now and I can be proud of my smile….which I wear all the time.” – Emily Day, DDS
