CORRECTING YOUR ALIGNMENT ISSUES AS AN ADULT
Posted October 9, 2017
When you were a child, did your minor alignment issues go unaddressed? This may have been for financial reasons or because you really didn’t want it, or because your parents didn’t really understand the importance of braces. Whatever the reason, as an adult, these minor alignment issues may pose a more significant threat. This can come in the form of enamel attrition, dental fractures, or further drift in the position of your teeth, resulting in an increasingly unappealing smile.
If you’ve already seen this occur or want to prevent it from happening, consider consulting with Hamilton & Manuele Orthodontics in Las Vegas, Nevada. Dr. R. Cree Hamilton and our staff can help you determine the best way to correct the alignment of your teeth. This might call for installing some variation of traditional braces or even a brand of clear plastic aligners.
If you have significant alignment issues or a severe malocclusion, we might recommend traditional braces. Multiple adjustments will bring your teeth into a proper alignment for a healthier mouth and more appealing smile.
If you have visible braces hardware on your teeth, don’t worry. Your Hamilton & Manuele Orthodontics orthodontist can apply a ceramic glaze to the visible orthodontic hardware on the braces. This amazing, sturdy porcelain material can be shaded to match your tooth enamel, making it harder for the casual observer to see.
If you have a minor alignment issues, we might be able to fit you for a brand of clear plastic aligners such as Invisalign®. These clear plastic mouthpieces can correct the alignment of your teeth in as little as six to eight weeks.
