Orthodontic Treatment for Adults on Long Island is a field that has advanced considerably over the last few decades. Treatment can be successful at any age, and adults especially appreciate the benefits of a beautiful smile. New techniques and options have led to a surge in adult orthodontics; in fact, 1 in 5 orthodontic patients are now adults. Oftentimes, adults have reservations about getting treatment. Two of the most common concerns for adults are the length of time in treatment, and the appearance of having orthodontic devices on the teeth. Luckily, there are treatment options that fit both of these concerns.
Adults can now choose to wear the highly popular ‘Invisalign’ aligners. Invisalign for Adults is a series of clear, removable plastic aligners that are custom made for each person’s teeth. They are much more comfortable than traditional braces as there are no wires or brackets. They are also much more convenient than the fixed metal braces as it is possible to take them out while eating and for cleaning.
The quicker option includes the use of clear traditional brackets. Unlike Invisalign, these kinds of braces are fixed to the teeth. However, once they are on they are extremely unobtrusive due to their smaller size and advances in orthodontic technology. These braces have an added advantage in that they tend to move the teeth quicker and more effectively than the Invisalign braces.
Both options are wonderful to consider when choosing Braces for Adults in Suffolk County Long Island. Don’t shy away from treatment just because of age. At Sabo & Rienecker Orthodontics, these treatment options are available with ease and expertise to people throughout the Suffolk County area.
