Adult Treatment

Orthodontics for ADULTS

Orthodontic treatment isn’t just for teens and children, about 25 percent of our patients are adults!  This number is increasing every day due to adults wanting to maintain their health, boost their self-confidence and have a positive impact on their social and professional opportunities.

At Sanford Orthodontics you will be welcomed by one of our team members at the front desk, they will sign you in and answer any questions that you may have. Our Treatment Coordinator will then acquaint you with our treatment area while explaining all aspects of the orthodontic experience.

Your initial orthodontic consultation will consist of taking diagnostic records and a complimentary exam by Dr. Sanford. He will then review your records, sharing his diagnosis. If treatment is indicated, we will create a personalized treatment plan for you that will prove to be the most beneficial for your specific needs. We are here to answer all questions and there is never any pressure to make quick decisions.

Benefits of Treatment

  • Align teeth to create a more aesthetic and youthful smile
  • Correct relapse due to lack of long term retainer wear
  • Create a better and more comfortable bite and ability to chew
  • Close spaces between teeth
  • Address missing teeth
  • Properly align teeth to help you speak more effectively and clearly.  
  • Improve the ability to brush and floss, especially for crowded and overlapping lower front teeth. 

Appliance Options

Today adults are offered a variety of orthodontic treatment options that are comfortable, aesthetic, and customized to meet your individual needs. They include:

  • INVISALIGN – a system of clear, removable aligners that are virtually invisible and made especially for adults. Aligners are custom-made via a computer program that takes into account exactly where your teeth are now and how they need to be moved.  Each aligner is worn two weeks and moves the teeth a limited amount. It is recommended that the aligners be worn for 22 hours per day.  Every time the aligner is changed you move one step closer to the smile you want to achieve. This may be the best fit for you as an adult fitting into your lifestyle by only removing them when you eat, lets you eat what you want and makes it easier to clean your teeth.
  • CERAMIC BRACES – feature brackets that are made of strong ceramic materials which blend in with your teeth, making them less noticeable and more esthetic.
  • METAL BRACES – We are proud to say our braces are made in the USA. Today they’re smaller, lighter and made with surgical stainless steel with customized color elastic ties on the brackets!  A thin wire runs though the brackets and is attached to either end to metal bands that go around the back molar.
  • RETAINERS – At night for life … wearing a retainer is one of the most important things you can do no matter your age or which type of appliance you choose. Teeth need to be held in place for a long time to allow the supporting bone to develop around them lessening their tendency to drift into misaligned positions.
