At Modern Orthodontics, we have built our reputation on providing superior orthodontic care to every patient, regardless of age. While most people think of teenagers and preteens when the term “orthodontics” is used, many adults also come to us when they are looking for ways to improve their smiles.
We understand that adults may have some reservations when it comes to getting braces. But rest assured we strive to make the process of your orthodontic treatment as comfortable and convenient as possible by providing a variety of options beyond traditional braces, for example, Invisalign.
No one is ever too old to improve his or her smile and self-confidence, so there is no reason to feel embarrassed about seeking orthodontic treatment in your adult years. Dr. Nick has a great deal of experience treating adult patients. Moreover, in addition to helping your teeth look better, seeking adult orthodontic treatment can improve your dental functionality and health. As such, it is well worth the investment.
We don’t believe in taking a one-size-fits-all approach to orthodontic care, so you can rest assured that any treatment we recommend for you will be based on your unique orthodontic needs. Depending on the condition of your teeth, your budgetary restraints, and your individual preferences, when you visit us in Bristow, Virginia at Modern Orthodontist office we may recommend one of the following treatment options:
Invisalign is the most common and the most effective system of invisible aligner “braces” on the market. They provide a number of benefits, including the ability to completely remove the treatment to clean the teeth and the aligners when necessary. They are essentially invisible and can be far more comfortable than metal braces. A set of clear, removable trays that are custom fitted to your teeth. You wear them for 20-22 hours a day. Invisalign is usually more expensive than braces but here at Modern Orthodontics, we offer Invisalign at the same price of traditional braces!
Standard metal brackets that are placed on your teeth with an adhesive and connected by wire. They require periodic tightening so steady pressure can gradually straighten your teeth and align your jaw.
Gold braces are actually made of stainless steel, just like standard braces. They just happen to be plated in gold! They are placed on the front of your teeth with an adhesive and connected by wire. They require periodic tightening so steady pressure can gradually straighten your teeth and align your jaw.
Lingual braces are like traditional metal braces, so although they’re not invisible, they attach to the back of your teeth versus the front and are much less noticeable. Incognito Hidden Braces work behind the scenes – literally – so no one can see you’re wearing braces. The braces are hidden behind your teeth and practically invisible when you smile. And they’re 100% customized for you, so you can be confident in the results.
Ceramic braces are associated with being more discreet than metal braces. The way they are composed and colored makes them less noticeable than metal braces. Ceramic brackets are placed on your teeth with an adhesive and connected by wire. They require periodic tightening so steady pressure can gradually straighten your teeth and align your jaw.
