There is no such thing as "too old for orthodontic treatment." If you're ready to discover your smile potential, now is the perfect time. With the current options available, most adults are surprised at the ease and non-invasive nature of modern orthodontics . Whether you've had treatment in the past or this would be your first time, the team at Babb Ortho will help make it a smooth, efficient process!
We offer the following products for adult patients:
Invisalign is the most esthetic treatment option. It is a series of clear plastic aligners that are changed every 1-2 weeks to gradually straighten the teeth. Invisalign is a popular choice for adults because they're discreet and can be removed when needed for work events or dinner dates. Also, because they're removable, your brushing/flossing routine doesn't have to change. The most common thing Dr. Babb hears when she finishes an Invisalign case: "I wish I had done this sooner!"
These braces are ceramic and blend in with the teeth so they're barely visible. They're bonded to the teeth just like traditional metal braces. With clear braces, we use highly esthetic white wires and clear ties to help straighten the teeth.
These are the traditional brackets, wires and colorful or clear ties that most everyone will recognize.
Some adults don't need any treatment at all. In these cases, we'll recommend retainers that can be worn nightly to help maintain that perfect smile.
During the initial consultation. Dr. Babb and her team will explain which treatment option is best for you. Sample models of all options are available in the office so that you're able see/feel what to expect with Invisalign or braces!
