Are you tired of hiding your teeth when you talk or smile? Are your crooked teeth making it difficult to talk to clients at work? Are you too embarrassed to smile for the annual family photo? If these scenarios sound all too familiar, have you ever considered straightening your teeth? Dr. Michael Curtis specializes in adult braces in Bridgeport, CT and he has convenient options and innovative solutions for busy adults.
Many adults don’t want to consider traditional braces because of the stigma associated with wearing metal brackets. Did you know, however, that there are actually many options for adult braces available, and no one will ever know that you’re having orthodontic treatment done?
Options for Adult Braces
At Curtis Family Dentistry, we offer a few options for adults wanting to improve the appearance of their smile through braces, or orthodontics. One option for adult orthodontics at our practice is Invisalign, which utilizes clear plastic trays that apply gentle pressure to gradually move your teeth, instead of traditional metal brackets. Invisalign treatment can typically be completed in six to eighteen months depending on the patient’s needs, and the best part is that no one will ever know that you’re having orthodontic treatment because the aligners are invisible.
Lingual braces are another orthodontic option available at Curtis Family Dental. These are traditional braces that are actually attached to the back of your teeth. This allows Dr. Curtis to treat even the most complicated orthodontic cases without anyone noticing your brackets because they’re on the back of your teeth. Another benefit of lingual braces is less irritation to your cheeks and other soft tissues, and treatment times are often less with lingual braces, as with Invisalign.
Am I a Candidate for Adult Braces?
The first step is meeting with Dr. Curtis for a smile evaluation. He will examine your teeth and bite to determine which option might be best for your lifestyle and budget. Then he will take x-rays, photos and models of your teeth so he can create a customized plan for your smile that is based on your specific needs. With Invisalign treatment it is even possible to see how your smile will look when completely aligned before you even get started. Dr. Curtis takes into consideration your goals for your smile and your lifestyle when recommending orthodontic treatment, he will also spend time reviewing the procedures with you so that you can make the best choice for your needs.
If you feel embarrassed or self-conscious about the appearance of your smile because your teeth are crooked or overlap, then it’s time for you to do something about it. There are so many discreet options for adult braces in Madison, CT that there’s no reason for you to wait any longer. The benefits of orthodontic treatment far outweigh any inconvenience that treatment may pose. When you feel confident enough to smile and talk freely, it makes all the difference in the world.
