A lot of the people we see at Overmeyer Family Dental wish that their smiles were straighter, or that an out-of-place tooth was brought into line with the rest. Those same patients are also often adults who don’t want to take the time or deal with the embarrassment of orthodontics in order to get that straight smile.
If you look at your teeth in the morning and wish something was different you don’t have to wish any longer! Our Orlando dentist office has orthodontic systems specifically designed with adult patients in mind – you can get a straighter smile without sacrificing your appearance or years of your life to get it!
How Orthodontic Care Can Change Your Life
In today’s fast-paced world we’re sitting still less than ever. Young adults are working more jobs before settling into a career, the internet has made finding a job across the country easy, and making major life changes happens in the blink of an eye. Some parts of our lives still move slowly, though, and a lot of people think dentistry is one of those slow moving parts – not true at all!
The orthodontic solutions we have for adults work on two timeframes: six months and a year. Depending on your need we’ll be able to recommend one of these two systems that can truly change your life!
- Many patients who have a desire for orthodontic care report self esteem issues. If you’re one of these patients then a major concern is probably how your life will be affected by orthodontic care. Both of our solutions are designed to be invisible!
- Patients who’ve received orthodontic care overwhelmingly report that their sense of self has improved. They feel more confident in their day-to-day lives, the enjoy smiling more, and they believe that they are able to accomplish things that were set back by their appearance in the past.
Your smile is a big part of your first impression and if you hide yours people will notice! If you’re looking for a new job, a relationship, or simply want to enjoy your social life to its fullest then a great smile is part of the equation. Imagine getting one in just six months and practically invisibly!
Our Adult Orthodontic Solutions
Getting the perfect smile in less time than ever requires some very specialized methods. We offer two, Invisalign and Six Month Smiles, that are sure to be the solution to your needs!
Invisalignuses a series of clear plastic aligners to slowly move your teeth over the course of treatment. You’ll swap out your aligner for a new one every two weeks and within about a year you’ll be at the end of treatment and living with a beautiful new smile!
You wear your Invisalign aligners for about 22 hours out of the day, only taking them out to eat and brush your teeth. Because they’re constantly in it’s almost like there’s no change to your daily routine! If you want to be super discreet you can even take your aligners to the bathroom and remove them in private!
Invisalign can treat mild to moderate alignment issues – there are some severe cases of misalignment that need a full orthodontic sequence. We’ll be able to assess your teeth and model your treatment outcomes before you even get the first aligner so you’ll know exactly how your treatment will turn out!
Six Month Smiles are traditional brackets and wires with a twist: they target the teeth that are visible when you smile and are colored to match your teeth so they’re practically unnoticeable! Only a close look at your teeth will reveal your Six Month Smiles braces, making them a great way to get a better smile fast and discreetly.
Because treatment time is so short Six Month Smiles isn’t designed to treat serious issues. It’s an ideal treatment for patients who want to close a gap or fix one or two teeth but it won’t be able to address more severe alignment issues that Invisalign or traditional braces can.
