Orthodontic treatment is a field that has advanced considerably over the last few decades. New techniques and options have led to a surge in adult orthodontics; in fact, 1 in 5 orthodontic patients are now adults. Lots of times adults have many reservations about getting treatment. Often, an adult patient’s major concern is the length of time in treatment, or the appearance of having orthodontic devices on the teeth. Luckily, there are treatment options that fit both of these concerns for patients of Westchester County NY thanks to Glaser Orthodontics
Adults can now choose to wear the highly popular ‘Invisalign’ braces. Invisalign is a series of clear, removable plastic aligners that are custom made for each person’s teeth. They are much more comfortable than traditional braces as there are no wires or brackets. They are also much more convenient than the fixed metal braces as it is possible to take them out while eating and for cleaning. We at Glaser Orthodontics are experts in the processes that come with Invisalign from start to finish, and are able to help you reach your goals with the help of Invisalign.
The quicker option includes traditional brackets. Unlike Invisalign, these kinds of braces are fixed to the teeth. However, once they are on they are extremely unobtrusive. These braces have an added advantage in that they tend to move the teeth quicker and more effectively than the Invisalign braces. Dr. Glaser has expert experience in this field as well, and is able to apply, adjust, and remove braces with confidence and ease. He and his team know all the proper timing for braces from beginning to end, and are aware of all the responsibilities that come with these braces. They are able to guide you throughout the whole process and provide insights as to how to care for braces.
Both options are wonderful to consider as smile repairing options. Don’t shy away from treatment just because of age. At the offices of Dr. Glaser, these treatment options are available with ease and expertise to people throughout the Westchester NY area. Visit glaserorthodontics.com for more information.
