Adults and Braces
Do you wish your smile was a little different each time you look in the mirror? Did you have braces as a teenager, but as you’ve gotten older you notice your teeth are not as straight as they used to be? Maybe you never had braces and you would like to do something about some crooked teeth or your bite now as an adult. With all the options available, other than traditional metal braces, adults in orthodontic treatment are much more common than they used to be.
If you are considering making a change, the first step is a consultation with an orthodontist. This will determine the treatment plan needed and the various options that can provide you with your best possible smile. Dr. Reagin at Reagin Orthodontics offers a free consultation to all new patients. At the consultation Dr. Reagin will talk with you about your concerns and how you would like your smile to look. He and his staff will also take a series of x-rays and photographs before making recommendations for your treatment plan and the options available to you.
Traditional metal braces are still an option in most cases, but if that is not the path you want to take there may be another option for you. Ceramic brackets blend with the color of your teeth to make your braces less noticeable. Incognito braces are placed on the back of your teeth so no one will notice you are wearing them. Invisalign is a series of custom-made clear aligners that typically go completely unnoticed by everyone!
Each person is unique in their treatment plan and which tools are the best for them. Dr. Reagin will discuss with you all the options that will get you the best result possible!
