Benefits of Adult Orthodontics

More and more adults are discovering the magic of orthodontic treatment, and there’s little wonder why. A renewed smile lends a boost of happiness, confidence, and self-esteem to every area of your personal and professional life. Everything from big presentations at work to friendly neighborhood gatherings are easier when you have a smile you’re proud of! Plus, modern orthodontic treatments make getting a new smile easier than ever before. While braces sometimes caused discomfort in the past, modern braces are thinner, lighter, and more comfortable, and treatment alternatives like Invisalign do away with metal brackets entirely.

Your Treatment Options

At Kurt Kavanaugh Orthodontics, we’re proud to provide a wide variety of orthodontic treatment options to our patients. Every treatment has a unique set of benefits that are best suited for certain situations, and Dr. Kurt Kavanaugh will work with you to choose the treatment that’s perfect for your lifestyle. Our orthodontic treatments include:

  • Metal Braces: This is what you probably think of when you hear the word braces. Made from high-grade stainless steel, metal braces use brackets cemented to the teeth and thin, springy archwires to move teeth over time. They’re durable, reliable, and cost-effective, providing a great solution for almost any orthodontic problem. 
  • Clear Braces: Clear braces work the same as metal braces but use brackets made from a clear ceramic composite material that blends in with teeth. This gives them an undeniable aesthetic advantage, but clear braces are slightly more fragile and expensive than traditional braces. 
  • Invisalign: Invisalign does away with brackets and wires altogether, instead using a series of clear, removable aligners to straighten teeth. Invisalign is virtually invisible when worn and easy to pop in and out to eat, drink, brush, and floss, making them a hugely popular option for adults!
