Braces for Adults and Adult Orthodontic Treatment | Shin Orthodontics in Rockville and Potomac

Braces For Adults

Braces For Adults

Braces aren’t just for kids anymore. Tooth alignment can be changed at any age if your gums and bone structure are healthy. We offer a variety of treatments that are designed for different age groups – including adults. A new smile can begin today.

Good news! The new techniques and appliances we use greatly reduce discomfort levels, decrease the frequency of visits, shorten treatment time and may allow you to choose from several options. Your options may include metal braces, translucent braces, lingual braces, or transparent aligners that can be worn at night to improve mild cases of misaligned teeth.

Possible benefits of adult orthontic treatment:

  • A beautiful smile that says "I'm worth it!"
  • Improved shape of face and profile
  • Straight teeth
  • Freedom from jaw joint pain (TMJ)
  • Improved chewing, digestion and speech
  • Improved clean-ability of teeth to avoid decay/gum disease
  • Establish healthy foundation for replacement of missing teeth or other restorative dental care

Orthodontic treatment at later stages in life can dramatically improve your personal appearance and self-esteem. Improving the health of your teeth and gums is equally important. Crooked teeth and a bad bite can contribute to gum and bone loss, tooth decay, abnormal wear of the tooth enamel, headaches and jaw joint (TMJ/TMD) pain.

During the initial examination, we will be able to determine the best possible treatment for your individual needs. During this initial examination, we can outline the treatment plan, time of treatment expected and the approximate cost.
