Age should never stop you from treating yourself to a beautiful smile and functional bite! Braces aren't just for kids anymore. According to the American Association of Orthodontists (AAO), millions of adults elect to have some form of braces or Invisalign, over double the number from 10 years ago.
Numerous technological advances have made braces less noticeable, less painful and even less time-consuming. Invisalign and clear braces are an excellent way for adults to receive orthodontic treatment in a comfortable and minimally noticeable way.
In recent years, adults are electing to straighten their teeth as a way of demonstrating that they care about themselves and their overall health, similar to exercising and eating healthy. Adults want to maintain their teeth and look better.
It's Never Too Late
Braces are not just for children. Teeth can be straightened at any age. The biological process involved in tooth movement is the same for both children and adults.
Straightening Teeth Has Never Been Easier
New techniques and materials have greatly decreased the discomfort of wearing braces, the frequency of office visits and overall treatment time.
Having straight teeth is important not only for children, but for adults as well. As we grow older, our teeth tend to become more crowded. As a result, it may be difficult to keep teeth clean and healthy. Straightening your teeth with Invisalign or braces can address the crowding and help you to maintain your dental health. It can also help you get the smile that you've always wanted!
Does Collins Orthodontics Offer Faster Clear Braces Options to Improve Smiles?
We have found that many of the adults in Rochester, MN and surrounding communities have wanted clear braces, but are not interested in the traditional 1-2 year treatment times. For that reason, we also offer limited orthodontic treatment with clear invisible braces for adults looking to improve their smiles in a shorter amount of time (commonly referred to as "6 month smiles" or "six month smiles"). However, we are different from many other six month smiles providers because of the level of orthodontic training of Dr. Collins. Because Dr. Collins has had over 8,000 hours of training in an accredited orthodontic residency program at Mayo Clinic, our team is able to accomplish far more in a 6 month period than most six month smiles providers. That way, you can get the smile you want in the shortest amount of time possible!
