Which orthodontic option is right for me?
If you’re an adult seeking orthodontic treatment, you have more options than ever before. At Temple Dental Trails, we will work with you to find the one that best fits all your needs.
- Traditional braces – We typically recommend bracket and wire braces for children and adults who have severe misalignment or problems with their dental bite. Today, we can use clear brackets and tooth-colored wires for adults who would like a more discrete option.
- Invisalign – This is a good option for busy adults who have mild to moderate tooth misalignments because the aligners are discreet, comfortable, and removable for oral hygiene and meals.
- Six Month Smiles – If you don’t want to correct bite problems but only want to straighten the teeth that show when you smile, Six Month Smiles might be a good choice for you.
However, there are benefits to orthodontics that go beyond a straighter smile. Straightening your teeth with any of these orthodontic options will also benefit your oral health because crooked or crowded teeth can be a challenge to clean correctly, leading to problems like decay and gum disease.
If you’re ready to take the first step to a straighter, healthier smile and would like to learn more about orthodontics in Temple, please call us at (254) 206-3492 to arrange an evaluation. Dr. Rich will listen to your concerns, make recommendations, and help you choose the treatment that is just right for you.
