You are never too old
If you're an adult who's thinking about orthodontic treatment, you are not alone. Currently, one of every five patients in orthodontic treatment is an adult. You'll also be happy to hear that most adult orthodontic issues can be corrected as well as they can be for children.
The reason is that orthodontic force moves teeth similarly for a 35-year-old adult as they can for a 12-year-old child. Dr. Matthew D. Dunn and Dr. Courtney A. Dunn understand that most adults would love to improve their smiles. That's why they have made adult orthodontic treatment a central portion of their office.
Providing the most up-to-date orthodontic solutions.
Drs. Dunn and Dunn offer multiple orthodontic treatment choices for adult patients and will suggest the best solution for your particular needs and desires. One choice you probably already know about is Invisalign®, which aligns teeth with removable, custom-made and clear aligners.
Since Invisalign aligners are removable, you can take out your Invisalign aligners when you floss, brush or eat.
Drs. Dunn and Dunn understand that even though you want a nicer smile, you may be putting off braces because you do not want the look of metal brackets on your teeth.
Fortunately, they can use clear cosmetic braces, which are an outstanding choice if you’re concerned about your appearance since they are practically invisible. Clear cosmetic braces are constructed of ceramic materials that are exceptionally durable; they are also resilient to staining.
Traditional metal brackets are also an option with Drs. Dunn and Dunn. Drs. Dunn and Dunn use the most-modern nickel-titanium archwires with all types of brackets. These archwires are temperature-sensitive and use a continuous, gentle force for more effective tooth movement and less discomfort.
