adulttreatmentDr. Glass of Glass Orthodontics is proudly serves patients of all ages from the Bay Minette, Daphne, Fairhope and Atmore areas of Alabama. Both our doctor and his dedicated team are committed to providing each patient with the highest quality of orthodontic care. Typically when people think of orthodontic treatment they think of teenagers in traditional metal braces, but this is a concept of the past! Orthodontic treatment can benefit people of all ages by improving oral health as well as quality of life.

Your Bay Minette Orthodontist Offers Adult Treatment

It should be stressed that the alignment of teeth can be adjusted at any age if the patient has healthy gum and bone structure. If a patient meets the criteria, it is possible this constitutes a potential orthodontic patient, which includes adults. It is never too late to achieve a healthy smile through orthodontic treatment.

How Do Adults Benefit From Orthodontic Treatment?

Dr. Glass strongly believes that orthodontic treatment at later stages in life will not only dramatically improve your personal appearance, but also your self-esteem. Constantly improving the oral health of your gums in teeth is always important, but especially for adults. Crooked teeth and a bad bite can contribute to the following oral health issues:

  • Gum and bone loss
  • Tooth decay
  • Abnormal wear of the tooth enamel and surfaces
  • Headaches and jaw joint (TMJ/TMD) pain

If you are an adult in the Atmore, Daphne or Bay Minette areas of Alabama and are concerned about your oral health, come in and meet with Dr. Glass for a consultation.

Orthodontic Process For Adults

The great news for adults is the advanced techniques and appliances used at our Daphne, Atmore and Bay Minette offices make for an efficient and effective orthodontic experience. These advancements result in the following for your treatment:

  • Lower discomfort levels
  • Decrease in frequency of visits
  • Shortened treatment time
  • Multiple Options

These options include different types of braces, including metal braces, translucent braces or transparent aligners to be worn at night to improve minor cases.

When you first come to see Dr. Glass for orthodontic treatment you will undergo an initial evaluation in order to determine if you are a candidate. If you are a candidate for orthodontic treatment the next step would be determining the best treatment plan for you. During this examination Dr. Glass will outline a specific treatment plan for you, the time frame of the treatment as well as an approximate cost of treatment.
