Orthodontic Treatment Options for Adults

By November 21, 2016Adult Orthodontics

Dr. Sophia Scantlebury and the Scantlebury Orthodontics team believe in helping patients of all ages get a beautiful smile and healthy teeth. And while adult braces may seem like an uncertain prospect, consider some of the following points of interest when researching adult orthodontic treatment in Brooklyn, NY.

Many adults feel overwhelmed by the thought of having to undergo orthodontic treatment. But the truth is that adult orthodontics is very common. Orthodontics knows no age limit. In fact, statistics have shown that one-in-five patients receiving orthodontic treatment are over 21 years old!

Braces can improve your self-confidence.

How many times have you been told to “dress to impress” for a job interview, a date, or a social event? Dressing your best means sporting your best accessory; your smile. That age-old saying “When you look good, you feel good.” certainly includes the appearance of your smile. A perfect smile can change everything about your look, boosting your confidence and even brightening your future. Dr. Sophia Scantlebury can help you get your perfect smile in Brooklyn, NY. Orthodontics, like braces, will straighten your teeth, realign your smile, improve your bite, and enhance your smile.

Braces don’t have to be noticeable.

Many adults shy away from orthodontic treatment for fear of how they might look while wearing traditional braces during treatment. Adults often associate the idea of braces with traditional metal appliances; the ones that come with awkward adolescent memories. Scantlebury Orthodontics offers a variety of less obvious and more fashionable orthodontic treatment options than metal braces in Brooklyn, NY. These include Invisalign – the clear plastic aligners – and ceramic braces (similar to traditional braces, though clearer and less visible). These two alternatives take the “awkward teenager” concept out of braces and put the “glowing smile” back in.

The cost won’t empty your wallet.

Cost is important to consider. Depending on how intensive the treatment needs to be, the cost of orthodontic treatment will vary. Often, traditional braces cost less. Invisalign, or clear braces, will most likely be a bit higher in price but depending on how extensive the treatment plan, the price may be relatively equivalent.

The Scantlebury Orthodontics team is eager to make your experience as cost effective as possible. Dr. Sophia Scantlebury can assess your individual needs and plan a treatment program at a price that is right for you. Orthodontia prices may cost a pretty penny, but orthodontic treatments with Dr. Sophia Scantlebury will restore your oral health, increase your confidence, and improve your appearance forever; a priceless investment in yourself.

Your health insurance plan may cover some of the costs of orthodontic treatment. Ask your insurance provider or Dr. Sophia Scantlebury for more details.

It is never too late to start straightening your smile. Orthodontic treatments including Invisalign and clear braces can improve your outlook on your personal or professional life, without costing a fortune for such important results. Dr. Sophia Scantlebury and the team at Scantlebury Orthodontics are ready to help you improve your look, your health, and your future.
