Treatment for Adults
An ever-increasing amount of adults have discovered the benefits of orthodontic treatment in our office. Many may say "I'm too old for braces", but this is simply not the case. As long as your teeth are supported by healthy gums and bone you may be a candidate for our care. If you have ever been unhappy with any aspect of your smile, do not hesitate to schedule an evaluation in our office.
The other issue that adults often mention is that they will "look like a kid with all that metal." Two points should put your mind at ease. The first is that braces on adults are a part of everyday life and quite common. The second is that our office offers a clear, ceramic type of brace that is barely noticeable on your teeth. The small inconvenience of braces will be well worth the satisfaction and confidence of a beautiful smile. Dr. Newell is also a certified Invisalign provider. This is an exciting new way to straighten teeth without using braces at all.
Dr. Newell also treats adults who are undergoing comprehensive care in conjunction with their family dentist and other specialists such as oral surgeons and periodontists. These patients may have teeth that have previously been removed and/or unsightly crowns (caps) that are going to be replaced. Also, alignment of adjacent teeth with braces is often requested prior to placing dental implants. Dr. Newell and your family dentist can map out a strategy to rehabilitate your mouth and create the smile that you have always wanted.
