Teen & Adult Orthodontics
Orthodontics for Teenagers and Adults
Comprehensive treatment refers to the orthodontic correction in patients that only have permanent teeth. This treatment is usually limited to teenagers and adults. Teens and adults comprise a large majority of our patients and present with unique needs and treatment goals.
At Iconic Orthodontics, it is important that we meet the individual needs of all of our patients; especially our teenagers and adults. We have structured our office guidelines and treatment options to ensure our teen and adult patients remain comfortable throughout their treatment.
Teen and adult patients seek orthodontic treatment for a number of reasons. They include; correction of an incorrect bite, alignment of crowded and mal-positioned teeth, closure of unsightly spaces, improvement in dental health and hygiene, and improvement in appearance, smile, and confidence. In case you are still wondering – Yes! We can do all of the above mentioned for our adult patients. You do not have to be a child to have well-aligned and healthy teeth.
In addition, patients within these age groups are typically more concerned with the length of treatment, visibility of orthodontic appliances, and ways in which treatment may interfere with work and other everyday activities. For these reasons, we provide options like clear aligner therapy (Invisalign®) and tooth-colored appliances (ceramic brackets) to address adult concerns. We have also extended our services to include tooth whitening and tooth and gum contouring to address the esthetic concerns of this group.
It’s never too late to start your Iconic journey. Today, one in five orthodontic patients is an adult. Braces or Invisalign® is your opportunity to achieve the smile you always wanted or reclaim the smile you lost due to a misplaced retainer. Exude the confidence you always wanted to and live the life you always desired. Contact Iconic Orthodontics today.
