Do you dream of improving your smile and straightening your teeth, but are unsure which option would be beneficial to you? Or perhaps you don’t even know where to begin, feel very overwhelmed, and are not sure if it is a waste to pursue treatment at your age. At Smiles by Holsinger and Higgins we can help you with your orthodontic needs. We are proud to offer various options that can fit into your lifestyle and budget.
Braces As An Adult
If you are concerned that braces are only for older children and teens, then you couldn’t be more wrong. There is no age limit to the results that can be achieved with orthodontic treatment, and there is no time like the present to do something for yourself and get the straight smile you deserve. We offer orthodontic options that are so discrete it will not appear as if you are making any improvement to your mouth and other options that are low maintenance requiring minimal visits to our office for adjustments.
Founded in 1997, Invisalign® uses thick, clear, plastic aligner trays to slowly shift teeth into the desired placement. This popular alternative to braces allows the aligner trays to be removed for eating, drinking, and brushing.
Similar to the previous option, Clear Correct also uses clear aligner trays with some minor differences. Developed in 2006, the plastic trays used with this option is a thinner material. They are more flexible, making them less noticeable and allowing you to speak and remove them from your mouth more easily.
This metal brace option is a faster treatment choice compared to traditional metal braces. With the use of tieless brackets and a high-tech arch wire, this system causes less discomfort and is easier to clean than other metal options. It also requires fewer adjustments, equaling less time spent in our office.
