it is never too late to achieve the beautiful smile that you deserve at Bayside Smiles.  Orthodontic treatment is an option for adults of any age.

Invisalign – The Discreet Option

No adult should have to have to hide in shame from crooked teeth or metal braces. There is no age limit to receiving orthodontic treatment, in fact, we find that adults are a growing demographic among our orthodontic patients.

Benefits of Adult Orthodontic Treatment

Adults are pleased to discover the following benefits from receiving orthodontic treatment:

  • Straightened teeth that reveal an aesthetically appealing smile
  • Improvement to a relapse in correction, resulting from retainer neglect
  • Relief from crowded and overlapping bottom teeth that caused difficulty brushing and flossing
  • Improved chewing a more comfortable bite
  • Smaller gaps between teeth
  • Replacement options for missing teeth
  • Correction of a jaw discrepancy
  • Relief from the wear caused by tooth grinding

Why Choose Invisalign

The main reason that adults hesitate to get braces is the way that they look. Invisalign is a removable option that gradually moves the teeth into a better position. Patients that have issues too severe for candidacy also have the option of clear ceramic braces that are significantly less obvious than metal.

Tenderness and Discomfort

There is no greater level of soreness expected with adult orthodontic treatment. Any discomfort can be relieved with over-the-counter medication. Within a few of days, the teeth gradually adjust to the initial discomfort. Today’s orthodontic treatment options and modern techniques reduce treatment time and minimize discomfort. The average orthodontic treatment time is 18 months, compared to the full two years expected in the past.

Cost of Adult Orthodontic Treatment

There is no clear cut cost of orthodontic treatment because each patient is different. The length of time, appliance used, complexity, and severity of your problem all play a role in determining the fee for your treatment.  Contact our office to schedule a fee adult orthodontic exam and find out what treatment options works best for you.
