At Hoeg Dental Group, our orthodontists have several different options for our patients of all ages considering braces, allowing for an orthodontic treatment that best suits the individual needs of each patient. We offer a variety of treatments that are designed for different age groups – including adults. Your options may include metal braces, translucent braces, or transparent aligners called Rocky Point Invisalign that can be worn to improve mild cases of misaligned teeth.
While many people have corrective orthodontic procedures done early in their lives, it is not uncommon for adults and even seniors to undergo orthodontic treatments. In fact, currently almost 20% of all orthodontic patients are adults. At first the idea of braces as an adult may seem unaesthetic or uncomfortable. Among the most common complaints from our adult patients when dealing with orthodontic treatment is that braces can be unattractive. In order to address this issue, our orthodontists offer Rocky Point Invisalign. This allows us to straighten your teeth by using a series of clear, customized, removable appliances called aligners. They are virtually undetectable, so hardly anyone will realize you’re wearing them. These aligners are designed to move your teeth in small steps to the desired final position prescribed by your doctor. Of course, we also offer traditional braces that utilize brackets and wires to gradually fix your malocclusion. They come in clear and a variety of color and material choices.
Orthodontics isn’t just for kids, and you’re never too old to start smiling your most beautiful smile yet. Orthodontic treatment at later stages in life can dramatically improve your personal appearance and self-esteem. Improving the health of your teeth and gums is equally important at every age. So if you’re looking to straighten your teeth, whether for cosmetic or medical purposes, especially if you’re considering Rocky Point Invisalign, then you should call Hoeg Dental Group today. Our office will be more than happy to discuss the varied options for your braces, and help you decide which style is right for you.
