Adult Orthodontics in Orlando, FL: Overmeyer Family Dental
It’s never too late to have your teeth alignment fixed. At Overmeyer Family Dental, we offer adult orthodontics care that will let you discreetly and comfortably get a straighter, more beautiful smile. You have two options for adult orthodontics to choose from Six Month Smiles and Invisalign. Both are effective and can produce great results in a short amount of time.
Six Month Smiles Orthodontics
Dr. Overmeyer offers the Six Month Smiles system to correct front teeth misalignment quickly and comfortably. Using tooth-colored wires and almost-invisible brackets, gentle, targeted force is applied to teeth that show when you smile, aligning your teeth slowly. This is great for busy professionals who have an image to maintain.
Unlike traditional metal braces and long-term aligner therapy, Six Month Smiles braces are more affordable. The very short treatment time also means that you have to endure less discomfort, fewer adjustments, and fewer trips to the dentist. The brackets are almost invisible, so you can smile with confidence at work or in class.
Is Six Month Smiles Right for You?
Six Month Smiles is a quick and affordable straightening option, but it is more of a cosmetic dental treatment. The best candidate is someone with mildly crooked, crowded, or gapped front teeth and good bite in the back teeth.
Your Orlando, FL orthodontist will examine your mouth and jaw thoroughly to determine if Six Month Smiles is right for you. Schedule a smile consultation by contacting our team today. Six Month Smiles can help you achieve the smile of your dreams even if you have surpassed your teenage years!
How Invisalign Works
Invisalign is another great option for adults who want fast, convenient, and discreet adult orthodontics care. Invisalign aligners are like transparent mouthguards that fit over your upper and lower teeth, moving them slowly and gently into ideal position. You wear a series of aligners (the number of aligners depends on the degree of misalignment) until your teeth are straight. Total treatment time varies, but it usually takes 9 to 15 months.
Like traditional metal braces, you must wear the aligners all day except when eating or cleaning your teeth, with each set of aligners to be worn for about two weeks. You will visit Dr. Tom or Dr. Jessica about once a month to check on your progress. Unlike Six Month Smiles, Invisalign can tackle alignment problems that aren’t solely cosmetic.
Making Invisalign Aligners
Invisalign treatment begins with a comprehensive smile consultation. Your dentist will examine your teeth and jaw to determine the best way to straighten your teeth. Next, your dentist will take X-rays, photos, and impressions of your teeth to be used in creating a custom straightening plan. Each stage of treatment represents a different aligner.
You and your dentist can preview and discuss how your teeth will look after treatment. Once the plan is approved, it is sent to the Invisalign company that manufacturers the aligners. In a few weeks, you are ready to wear your first aligner!
Is Invisalign Right for You?
Invisalign is an excellent choice for teenagers AND adults. The aligners are made of high-grade, soft plastic that fits comfortably over your teeth. Unlike metal braces, Invisalign aligners also allow you to smile confidently, eat whatever you want, and clean your teeth easily. If you want to continue looking your best even throughout your adult orthodontic treatment, Invisalign is a great option for you.
