At HIPP Orthodontics, we offer adult braces and Orthodontic treatment solutions for people of all ages. Our braces are reliable, comfortable, and incredibly successful at realigning the teeth. Our orthodontic treatments work in the same way regardless of the age of the patient. In short, an adult can experience the same beautiful results as a child or teenager.
Orthodontic braces treatments are typically associated with kids and teenagers, but today, an increasing number of adults are seeking orthodontic treatments to straighten their teeth and correct any malocclusions. People are becoming more educated about the benefits of orthodontic treatments and what a beautiful smile can mean for their professional, emotional and physical wellbeing.
How you can you Benefit from adult braces and Orthodontic Treatment
Specialist orthodontics work for adults who want to correct their teeth that were neglected inyouth. Teeth with various malocclusions or misalignments look unsightly, which in many cases leads to poor self-esteem and a lack of self-confidence. We’ve seen patient after patient come in, lacking confidence because of their teeth, patients of all ages.
You’ll see, once we’ve created your perfect smile, your confidence will grow.
What to expect when getting braces
At HIPP Orthodontics, we conduct an initial thorough examination of your teeth and jaw. We take panoramic x-rays and bite impression study models before making any treatment recommendations.
And that confidence pays! Did you know that studies show that people who’ve had their teeth fixed go on to earn more in life? Read the study here...
Benefits of Adult Braces
Orthodontic treatments or adult braces offer a multitude of health and dental benefits, including:
What are the main types of Braces for Adults
Orthodontic braces have been adapted and modified to make them more convenient for treatments in adults. There is now a wide range of fixed and removable orthodontic devices available, depending on the malocclusion.
At HIPP Orthodontics, we understand that everybody has overextended schedules already in today's life. Thus, we always aim to finish early orthodontic treatment in 12 months or less at appointment times that suit you.
Ceramic Braces (Aesthetic Braces)
Ceramic braces are the same shape and size as metal braces. However, they offer patients the extra benefit of a discrete aesthetic appearance. The brackets on ceramic braces are a pearl-coloured material that blends in with the rest of the patient's natural teeth.
Invisalign is an orthodontic treatment that straightens your teeth without the use of traditional metal braces. Invisalign uses 3-D imaging technology to determine the complete treatment plan and help your teeth get from the initial position using custom made aligners. Aligners are generally worn for about two weeks and then replaced by the next set of aligners until your teeth reach their final position.
Retainers For Teeth
Retainers are specific orthodontic devices that assist in straightening teeth and are one of many orthodontic treatment options. Retainers often get used in conjunction with braces. We usually prescribe retainers during the retention phase and reinforce the work done by traditional braces or Invisalign®.
