We can't say this enough: You're never too old for the smile of your dreams! Orthodontic treatment can happen at any age. We love seeing the way adult braces can transform a patient's smile and self-confidence! We also know that orthodontic treatment can relieve frequent jaw pain, accelerated tooth wear and decay, and sleep apnea. So whether you're 20 or 80, stop in and see what Connolly Orthodontics can do for you!
A beautiful smile can boost self-esteem at any age! But orthodontic treatment can do so much more. We find that our patients who have had bad bites most of their lives tend to suffer from jaw pain, neck pain, headaches, excessive tooth wear, and sleep disorders such as snoring or sleep apnea. Orthodontic treatment with braces or Invisalign can reduce or eliminate all of these issues. Come see what Connolly Orthodontics can do for you!
Orthodontic options for adults are more varied than they have ever been before! At Connolly Orthodontics, we offer what most people would consider traditional braces (because they look similar), but they're anything but standard. Self-ligating braces (what Dr. Connolly recommends) are a big step up from the traditional metal braces you might remember. These work without elastic bands around each bracket. Instead, tiny doors hold the archwire in place and allow it to slide better. That means your teeth move into place faster and more comfortably than with typical "traditional" braces. Not only are they better, faster, and easier to clean, they also have shorter orthodontic checkups because elastics don't need to be changed!
While many adult patients are interested in "invisible" treatment options like Invisalign, braces may be the better option in some case. For patients who prefer a more discreet look, Connolly Orthodontics offers clear braces. These braces use a ceramic material that's closer to your natural tooth color, so they're less visible than traditional braces. They still provide the same moving power as metal braces, giving you a smile you can be proud to show off during and after treatment!
