Adult Orthodontics

At ShoreSmiles Orthodontics, we believe it’s never too late to achieve the smile of your dreams. Orthodontic treatment is not just for children and teens; adults can benefit tremendously from braces and clear aligners as well. With advanced orthodontic solutions tailored specifically for adults, our practice offers the expertise and technology to help you attain a beautiful, healthy smile at any age.

Why Consider Orthodontic Treatment as an Adult?

Many adults believe that orthodontics is only for kids, but that couldn’t be further from the truth. Have you ever noticed that there seem to be more adults getting orthodontic treatment, whether it be with clear aligners or braces? You’re not alone. In fact, 1 in 3 orthodontic patients today are adults. Here are some reasons why adult orthodontic treatment can be a game-changer:

  • Improved Oral Health: Straight teeth are easier to clean, reducing the risk of tooth decay, gum disease, and other oral health issues.
  • Enhanced Aesthetics: A beautifully aligned smile boosts your confidence and can improve your personal and professional life.
  • Better Functionality: Correcting bite issues can enhance your ability to chew, speak, and even breathe properly.
  • Relief from Discomfort: Addressing misaligned teeth and jaw problems can alleviate pain and discomfort associated with these issues.

Modern Orthodontic Solutions for Adults

At ShoreSmiles Orthodontics, we offer a variety of advanced orthodontic treatments designed to meet the unique needs of adult patients. Whether you’re looking for a subtle solution or a comprehensive treatment plan, we have options that fit your lifestyle and goals.

Clear Aligners

Clear aligners are an excellent choice for adults seeking a nearly invisible orthodontic solution. These custom-made, removable trays gradually shift your teeth into their desired positions without the need for brackets and wires. Clear aligners offer several benefits, including:

  • Discreet Appearance: Virtually invisible, clear aligners allow you to straighten your teeth without drawing attention.
  • Convenience: Removable trays make it easy to maintain your oral hygiene routine and enjoy your favorite foods without restrictions.
  • Comfort: Smooth, comfortable aligners reduce the risk of irritation and discomfort compared to traditional braces.

Dr. Veronica Toro will evaluate your individual case and suggest the clear aligner provider that best addresses your needs, ensuring you receive the most effective and personalized treatment.

LightForce Braces

For those who need the precision and control of traditional braces but want a more customized and efficient treatment, LightForce braces are an ideal option. These 3D-printed braces are tailored to the exact shape of your teeth, ensuring a perfect fit and optimal results. Benefits of LightForce braces include:

  • Customization: Each bracket is individually designed to match your teeth, offering superior accuracy and effectiveness.
  • Enhanced Comfort: The personalized fit reduces irritation and discomfort, making your orthodontic experience more pleasant.
  • Aesthetic Appeal: Smaller, less noticeable brackets make LightForce braces a more attractive option for adults.
