Adult Treatment

Adult Orthodontic Treatment at Christenson Family Orthodontists

There's never been a better time than now

At Christenon Family Orthodontics, we are excited to see more adults coming in for orthodontic treatment than ever before. Our office believes it is never too late to achieve a beautiful, healthy smile. As more adults discover the benefits of orthodontic treatment, our office has expanded to include more discreet treatment options, including clear aligners (Invisalign) and clear (ceramic) braces.

Some of the dental conditions that can be corrected or improved with orthodontic treatment are:

  • Crowded / crooked teeth
  • Spacing between teeth
  • Cross Bite - The top teeth don’t align properly with the bottom row of teeth.
  • Open Bite - The top and bottom teeth don’t overlap in front.
  • 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.

Would you benefit from orthodontic treatment?

Benefits of orthdontic treatment are just as, if not more, relevant for adults as they are for teenagers.

  • Improvement in personal appearance and self esteem
  • Aligned teeth are easier to clean and promote gum health
  • Teeth that come togetherly properly are less likely to experience abnormal wear of the enamel and enables more effective chewing
