After putting everyone else first, it is time to finally focus on YOU. You shouldn’t have to wait any longer for the smile that you have always dreamed of. More and more adults are starting treatment now than ever.
At Knapp Orthodontics, about half of the patients we treat are adults. At minimum it is worth scheduling a free consult to discuss your treatment options. We can even 3D scan your teeth and show you a simulation of how your teeth will move and look after straightening them up. There is nothing like feeling confident about your smile.
Maybe it is your first time looking into getting braces, or you had braces in the past, but your teeth have since shifted. Either way, we will provide a comprehensive and detailed explanation of how we plan to get you to the finish line.
Today, we have all sorts of options like metal braces, clear braces, and Invisalign/Spark clear aligner treatment. With advances in technology we can go extended periods of time (4 weeks-12 weeks) between appointments, allowing you to focus on your life while we focus on your teeth. Treatment today is more efficient and comfortable than it has ever been in the past.
Treatment will address crooked teeth, teeth with spacing or gaps, crossbites, underbites, overbites, open bites, thumb habits, tongue habits, narrow palates, missing teeth, surgical orthodontics, and much more.
We have had so many patients come into the office who were afraid to smile. Now is the time to change that! Did you know that Dr. Knapp didn’t have braces until he was an adult? He lived with a jacked-up grill until he decided it was time to do something about it. Schedule a free consultation with Dr. Knapp today!
Adult Treatment Options
Clear aligners have advanced tremendously over the years making more patients candidates for treatment. Today they are very translucent making them nearly invisible. Not only can they be taken in and out of your mouth as needed for social events, but they allow for very easy brushing and flossing. At times, clear aligners can also decrease the treatment time needed to straighten your teeth. Knapp Orthodontics is proud to be a provider of Spark Clear Aligners.
Clear Ceramic Braces
Don’t like the look of metal braces? No problem. Clear ceramic braces are a great alternative for you. They offer the advantage of being able to move teeth like metal braces yet are camouflaged making them more difficult to see. If special times arise to show off some colors, rubber bands can certainly be added.
Metal (Silver) or Gold Braces
You would be surprised at the number of adults who request metal braces. Whether it is a current trend or fashion statement to have the traditional metal braces, more adults are happily picking this option over other options (we think it has to do with the cool rubber band color choices). Smaller is better when it comes to braces, as technology has advanced to pack the same precision into a smaller design and at the same time be more comfortable for the patient. Don’t forget to cheer for your football team with matching colors around your braces. Or consider upgrading your package and getting gold colored braces.
