At Parkside Dental Care, we are happy to offer our patients more than general and restorative dentistry services. While those treatments are necessary and important for your oral health, we are also able to provide cosmetic and orthodontic treatments as well. Some adults are under the impression that orthodontic treatments are only available to children and teens, and that couldn’t be farther from the truth. We are proud to offer our adult patients of all ages orthodontic treatment with the use of clear aligner trays.
Many adults would love to straighten their teeth or improve the placement of their teeth but are not interested in wearing traditional metal braces. If you are unfamiliar, clear aligners are a series of removable trays that are used to slowly transition the teeth into the desired placement. Because the trays are removable, they allow patients to continue to enjoy their favorite foods and avoid many of the other restrictions found with traditional metal braces. This is perfect for our adult patients who do not want to draw attention to the fact that they are receiving orthodontic treatment.
When a patient experiences issues, such as overcrowding, they are more prone to developing recurring dental decay and gum disease because it is more difficult to clean their teeth and there is a greater likelihood that food will become trapped between teeth. When the placement of the teeth is corrected with the help of clear aligners, the state of your overall oral health is greatly improved, eliminating the need for costly dental treatments.
If you are located in Montgomery, AL or the surrounding area and are interested in learning more about adult orthodontics, be sure to contact our office for an appointment. We would love to evaluate your oral health and start you on your journey to straight teeth.
