Adult Orthodontic Treatment

Quality Orthodontic Treatment for Adults

At First Impressions, we have the opportunity to meet with patients of all ages every single day. We are excited to see more adults than ever before coming in for orthodontic treatment, since our office firmly believes that it’s never too late to achieve a beautiful, healthy smile. As more adults discover the benefits of orthodontic treatment, our office has expanded to include additional choices that allow all of our patients to experience braces discreetly.

Do I Need Braces?

There has never been a better time to consider adult braces. With advances in orthodontic technology, you can achieve stunning results in a short amount of time. Let your favorite orthodontist in Fairfield, First Impressions, help you determine if you are a good candidate for adult orthodontic care. While healthy teeth can be properly moved at any age, some adults with periodontal (gum) disease may need to receive additional treatment first. Here are a few problem areas that braces can help correct:

  • Cross Bite
    The top teeth don’t align properly with the bottom row of teeth.
  • Open Bite
    The top and bottom teeth don’t meet up correctly.
  • Overbite
    The top front teeth provide over coverage of the bottom teeth.
  • Over Jet
    The top front teeth protrude.
  • Under Bite
    The top teeth fall behind the bottom teeth.

If you suffer from any of these conditions, Dr. Cass D. Burrell and Dr. Kirk Round at First Impressions can work with you to create a customized treatment plan. Orthodontic care can straighten and align teeth properly, but it also makes you look and feel better. We are excited to see the difference a smile makeover can make in your life.

Types of Orthodontic Treatment

There are many options available when it comes to braces. Our team at First Impressions is proud to provide a wealth of choices for our valued patients. To ensure your complete comfort, we offer the following options:

  • Traditional Metal Braces
    Metal braces have small metal brackets that adhere to the front of the teeth. A wire runs through the brackets to help move the teeth.
  • Clear Aligners
    Clear aligners are a set of removable trays that fit perfectly over your teeth. You receive new trays periodically to help shift the teeth into position.
  • Retainers
    Retainers are essential for post-orthodontic care. Your teeth want to shift back into their original position, and a retainer holds them firmly in place.
