Adult patients come to our office for a variety of reasons. Some never got orthodontic treatment when they were younger, while others’ teeth have shifted back toward their original positions. Regardless of the problem, adults can benefit from orthodontics just as much as our younger patients.
Adults shouldn’t feel that they’ll stand out from the crowd in our patient population. In general, about 20 percent of orthodontic patients are over age 21. You won’t be the only non-parent grown-up in the waiting room, and we promise we’ll have reading material other than teen magazines, too!
Many adult patients are just as concerned with their appearance during treatment as they are with the outcomes afterward. The Invisalign system is a good option for these patients. With clear, removable aligners, Invisalign won’t obscure your pearly whites from view.
We understand that cost can be a concern for adult patients, especially those who don’t have any insurance coverage for orthodontic treatments. We offer multiple treatment options and levels that fit into a variety of budgets, and we have financing options, too.
If you’re an adult who is dissatisfied with your smile’s appearance, don’t shy away from orthodontic treatment. It may be exactly what you need to achieve your smile goals. Talk to Dr. Myser or Dr. Barnhart to learn more about possible outcomes.
