Adult Treatment

Braces aren’t just for kids anymore. A large percentage of our patients are adults, and they agree that it’s never too late to improve their smile. If your gums and bone structure are healthy, orthodontic treatment can begin at any age.

Orthodontic treatment can dramatically improve your personal appearance and self-esteem. Crooked teeth and a bad bite can contribute to gum disease, bone loss, tooth decay, abnormal wear of the tooth enamel and surfaces. Teeth alignment not only improves your personal appearance it can create healthy gums and teeth.

You'll be pleased to learn that braces will work with your current lifestyle. You can do almost anything with braces. The good news is that the new techniques and materials that Dr. Trenchard uses today have made wearing braces more comfortable for adults and teens. Metal brackets are much smaller than they used to be. Even less noticeable are braces made of ceramic or plastic.

A consultation with an Dr. Trenchard is the best way to determine if you can benefit from orthodontic treatment. The condition of your teeth, gums and supporting bone is the most important factor in determining the potential for improving your smile and dental health. Remember, the biological process involved in tooth movement is the same in both adults and children.

After an initial examination, Dr. Trenchard will be able to tell you what your treatment will involve and its approximate cost. If you decide to proceed, Dr. Trenchard will take digital photographs and special x-rays.

Every person's malocclusion is different. After carefully analyzing the nature of your needed correction, Dr. Trenchard will recommend the best course of treatment for improving your smile.
