More and more adults today are seeking orthodontic treatment to improve their smile. In fact, about 25 percent of our patients are adults! We offer a full range of treatments specifically designed for adults – leaving you with a dramatically different smile and healthier bite.
Orthodontic treatment is not only designed to improve the appearance of your smile, but improve 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.
Often times, because adults usually are more compliant in their orthodontic treatment, their results turn out far greater than with a child and/or teen. By following the instructions provided by Dr. Herrmann, you not only increase your chances for amazing results, but could also shorten your treatment time as well.
Once Dr. Herrmann assesses your oral health and orthodontic needs, he will recommend an individualized treatment program. His innovative orthodontic care includes the SureSmile® digital orthodontic system, Lingual braces (placed on the inside of the teeth) and Cosmetic clear self-ligating braces. These approaches offer quicker, more comfortable treatment and require fewer office visits. Image-conscious teens can maintain their “cool factor” with either lingual (on the inside of the teeth) or cosmetic clear braces because they are virtually invisible. Some mature teens are also candidates for Invisalign®, which involves the use of clear removable aligners to straighten teeth.
