No matter your age, you deserve a smile to be proud of!
You might not realize that we can fix your tooth alignment no matter what your age is. Braces are not just for children anymore. We can get you the smile you deserve!
Here at Quad City Orthodontics, we work hard to give you the smile you’ve always wanted. We offer many different treatments that can be effective no matter how old you are. More and more orthodontic treatments are becoming available to give adults the smile that they want.
Orthodontic treatments are not just for your smile, even though they can really improve your appearance and self-esteem. Fixing your teeth can also dramatically change your oral health. When you have crooked teeth or a malocclusion, you may have some oral health problems such as disease and tartar buildup. Chronic mouth-breathing can cause narrow arches and crooked teeth. Alignment of teeth and correction of oral habits such as a tongue thrust can help improve oral health to help with long term periodontal stability.
It can be really hard to brush between your teeth when they don’t line up correctly, which will lead to more cavities and decay. Many people who suffer from malocclusions have jaw pain along with headaches.
As newer and newer technologies are designed, it is getting easier to get the smile you deserve. You won’t have to come in for as many follow-ups and may have a better smile even quicker than you thought possible.
If you want to improve your smile, we always start with a thorough examination and x-rays. We will then discuss your many options, including different forms of braces, aligners, and retainers. We also will talk about the treatment plan, what you should expect, and the cost. If your insurance will cover some of the costs, we will glad to help you figure it out.
