Adult Orthodontics in La Porte, IN
It’s Never Too Late to Have A Happy, Healthy Smile
Our adult patients truly appreciate their new, beautiful 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 La Porte, IN, then our specialist at Fryar Orthodontics is here to improve your smile.
Orthodontic treatment is not only designed to improve the appearance of your smile but the health of your teeth and gums as well. By seeking orthodontic treatment as an adult, you can possibly avoid severe tooth decay, gum and bone loss, irregular wear of the tooth enamel, and TMJ/TMD pain. We are also proud of the fact that we treat most of our patients without permanent tooth extractions.
Since adults are usually more compliant in their orthodontic treatment, their results are often better. By following the instructions provided by your orthodontist, you can enhance your results and shorten your treatment time!
Braces: No Longer Just For Teenagers
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. We offer a wide variety of braces to meet the individual needs and desires of each of our adult patients, and retainers are always included for free with treatment.
Benefits of Adult Orthodontics
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 and tooth decay
- Prevention of bone loss caused by improperly positioned teeth
- Improved ability to bite and chew
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 modern orthodontics mean you now have multiple options. In addition to traditional metal braces, we offer other options for adults who prefer a more discreet treatment method or a speedier treatment plan. Additionally, treatment with braces at Fryar Orthodontics includes free permanent or removable retainers and our 100% satisfaction guarantee over the course of your treatment.
Invisalign® – uses a series of virtually-invisible clear aligner trays to move your teeth into their optimal position. The treatment result is equal 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 that the braces are nearly undetectable.
Damon® Braces – an advanced system that uses stainless steel brackets with a slide mechanism instead of ties to move teeth more rapidly, resulting in fewer adjustments, more comfort, and faster treatment.
Insignia™ Braces – using 3D imaging, Insignia can create precision brackets and wires to better suit your needs, resulting in more comfort and shorter treatment time for our patients.
