Millions of people in the United States and Canada are currently being treated by members of the American Association of Orthodontists (AAO). One in four patients is an adult.
Orthodontic treatment moves teeth in the same way for a 75-year old as it does for a 13-year old. Spillers Orthodontics reminds those considering orthodontic treatment that healthy teeth can be moved at any age.
No one is “too old” for orthodontic treatment. If you’re an adult who’s self-conscious about your smile, orthodontic treatment can provide you with the same benefits younger patients enjoy – teeth that function well and look nice, too! Untreated orthodontic problems can get worse over time. It’s best to preserve natural teeth whenever possible.
If treatment is recommended, there are a number of options available today that make it easier, faster and less noticeable than it was in the past. One of the most effective and popular of these is Invisalign®, which uses a series of clear, plastic aligner trays to move the teeth in small steps.
Invisalign treatment is very appealing to adults because the aligner trays are not only smooth, imperceptible and comfortable to wear, but they’re also removable. Patients can continue doing all the things they normally would, from brushing and flossing, to eating whatever they like.
Invisalign patients typically enjoy shorter treatment time than those with traditional braces. The average time between orthodontic appointments for Invisalign patients at Spillers Orthodontics is about ten weeks, so you’ll miss less time from work and other important commitments. Also, thanks to our digital intraoral scanners, there is no need for messy, uncomfortable impressions at Spillers Orthodontics. Spillers Orthodontics is middle Georgia’s only Elite Top 1% Invisalign Provider.
