Experts believe this is a trend that is likely to stay. Orthodontic treatment is just as effective for adults as children. Healthy teeth can be moved at any age because it’s the same physiological process. Depending on the complexity of the case, as well as what the patient wants to achieve, a short-term touch up can take as little as several months while comprehensive treatment can take much longer. Dr. Bocage will customize your smile according to your preferences, we don’t require a referral from a dentist.
Treatment doesn’t have to be noticeable to others.
Advances in orthodontics have made treatment more comfortable and less noticeable than ever. Many of today’s treatment options are designed to minimize the appearance of the appliance to better fit any lifestyle.
Options include clear aligners, like Invisalign, tooth-colored braces, tiny but more traditional metal braces, and braces that go behind the teeth. Because not every appliance is suitable for every kind of orthodontic problem, Dr.Bocage will be able to determine which type is right for the best result.
It’s more than a beautiful smile.
Yes, straight teeth are attractive and create confidence, but there’s more to it. Leaving misaligned teeth untreated may lead to other dental problems such as tooth decay, gum disease, abnormal wearing of tooth enamel and difficulty chewing. Dr.Bocage recommends coming for a checkup, it docent matter how old you are, we are living longer than ever before, and healthy teeth are therefore more important than ever. Dr. Bocage strongly believes that everybody should be able to have the pleasure to live with healthy teeth, and that everybody should go through life brandishing a beautiful smile, irregardless of age.
