You're never too old to straighten your teeth. No matter your age, aligning your teeth can improve the health and appearance of your smile.
Orthodontics can correct crooked teeth or spaces that make you feel self-conscious, and give you the relaxed confidence that comes from having straight teeth and a great smile.
The benefits of Orthodontics are more than just cosmetic. Misaligned teeth can lead to dental problems such as tooth decay and gum disease, as well as damaging tooth wear and difficulty with chewing.
As well as producing a beautiful and natural smile, Orthodontic treatment can improve the health of your teeth and gums, and help you to eat and chew more comfortably.
Recent advances in Orthodontic technology have produced visually appealing alternatives to traditional braces, giving you a variety of options to straighten your smile discreetly.
Whichever Orthodontic option you decide upon, we will take the time to personally design and tailor your Orthodontic care to meet your individual treatment needs.
Why choose Profilo° Dental for Adult Braces?
There are important differences between Ortho for adults compared to Ortho for kids and teens. Adult jaws and faces have finished growing, and adult teeth tend to move more slowly.
Adults may have broken, worn or missing teeth, and are more likely to have experienced Gum Disease. If any issues exist, they must be identified and treated before starting Orthodontic care.
We ensure that every aspect of dental care for our Adult Braces patients is carefully managed throughout their treatment, to minimise the potential for unwanted issues to arise.
Healthy teeth can be moved at any age, but the right care and planning must be used when doing so. We want to make sure that you not only have a straight smile, but also a healthy smile.
We appreciate that quality treatment with Adult Braces does come at a cost, which is why we offer interest-free Payment Plans to help give you access to the treatment you're seeking.
Why do we use 3D Digital Ortho?
3D Digital Ortho offers greater precision, accuracy and efficiency than conventional braces, meaning we can give you a better Orthodontic result in a shorter amount of time.
We custom-design and produce the braces we use for each of our patients, with each set meticulously crafted to move your teeth into the desired arrangement.
Our 3D Scanning technology uses a precise and comfortable digital imaging process, to create high definition impressions of your teeth in lifelike colours.
The enhanced detail we capture with 3D Scanning perfectly recreates your teeth and smile. We can simulate different treatment outcomes to work out the best ways to give you your ideal result.
3D Orthodontic simulation lets you take part in your treatment planning and gives you a clear idea of your end result, so that you have the confidence in knowing how your new smile will look right at the start.
Adult Braces FAQs
Here are the answers to some of the most common questions we get about Adult Braces.
1. Is Orthodontic treatment effective in Adults?
Age is not an issue when it comes to Orthodontic treatment. As long as the supporting bone and gum around teeth are healthy, teeth can be moved successfully using Adult Braces with little risk of damage.
2. Does Orthodontic treatment take longer in Adults?
Orthodontic treatment can be as effective in Adults as it is in Kids and Teenagers, but it usually takes longer for teeth to move in Adults using Adult Braces.
3. How often do I need adjustments during Adult Braces?
Advances in Orthodontic systems allow for appointments to be spaced out to around 6-8 weeks apart. Modern Adult Braces use tie less brackets that require less adjustment visits.
4. I've been treated for gum disease, can I still have Adult Braces?
As long as you don't have active gum disease, you are usually suitable for treatment with Adult Braces. It is of great importance you have regular appointments with our dentists or hygienists during treatment.
5. I've had braces before but my teeth have moved. Can I fix this?
We see many people that have had Ortho treatment as a teenager, and have since experienced relapse. There are inexpensive, quick and simple ways to realign your teeth, and keep them aligned permanently.
