Our adult patients truly appreciate their beautiful, new smiles and renewed confidence! Getting orthodontic treatment improves your appearance, and it enhances your oral health for a lifetime. Most people are excellent candidates for orthodontic treatment and you may be, too. If you’re interested in high-quality adult orthodontics in Manhattan and New York City, NY, then Dr. Faust at Elite Orthodontics is here to help!

Braces Are for Adults, Too

According to the AAO, 20% of all orthodontic patients in America are more than 21 years of age. While traditionally, braces were seen as a dental treatment for teenagers, today’s patients are realizing that adults have options, too.

Benefits of Orthodontic Treatment for Adults

No matter your age, straighter teeth provide multiple benefits for your oral health as well as your personal well-being. For adults, the advantages are even greater. They include:

  • Enhanced appearance & smile
  • Increased oral health
  • Improved self-confidence
  • Prevention of oral health issues like gum disease & tooth decay
  • Prevention of bone loss caused by improperly positioned teeth
  • Improved ability to bite & chew

Available Treatment Options for Adults

If the idea of wearing metal braces is keeping you from a beautiful set of teeth, then you’ll be glad to know that advancements in orthodontic technology mean you now have options. In addition to traditional metal braces, we offer both options below for adults who prefer a more discreet treatment method.

Invisalign® A series of virtually invisible, clear aligner trays move your teeth into their optimal position. The treatment result is similar to traditional braces and is typically achieved in less time.

Clear Braces – Designed to work just like traditional metal braces, but they are made with clear or tooth-colored pieces that fit on your teeth so the braces are nearly undetectable.

Dr. Faust will perform a thorough exam to determine which orthodontic treatment will work best for your needs. She will take the time to educate you on your options and answer your questions before proceeding with treatment. Call today to get started on your best smile!
