Dr. Robin and Dr. Matt offer orthodontics/braces to our adult patients as well as our younger patients. Many of our adults might have required braces when they were a child, but for whatever reason, this did not happen. Some of our adult patients may have had braces at a young age, but their teeth have shifted or their bite has changed, causing new orthodontic problems.
Orthodontics or braces treats improperly positioned teeth. Many of our suffering adult patients complain of headaches, neck pain, and dizziness, fainting, clicking or locking of jaws, ringing in the ears or earaches. Use of braces, appliances and orthodontic treatment applies gentle pressure to move teeth to their desired position. Orthodontics can improve both the appearance and the function of your teeth.
Dr. Robin offers a number of traditional and discreet solutions for our adult patients as far as their braces are concerned. Braces have come a long way over the years and Dr. Robin and the team here at Hildebrand Dental pride themselves in offering patients the latest in orthodontic technology.
Dr. Robin has incorporated Insignia Damon brackets which are custom made brackets (metal or porcelain) allowing the teeth to move more comfortably and quickly to the precise location intended. Custom made means less friction, hence less discomfort. The Damon brackets don’t need elastics to hold the wire in place. Eliminating the, need to change elastics means less frequent visits, giving you the same great results as conventional brackets, but with a faster pace and fewer visits. Dr. Robin also offers the Invisalign clear aligner system for those patients that would preferoneno one knows they are receiving orthodontic treatment.
We encourage all of our adult patients to feel free to ask any questions about orthodontics and braces by speaking with either Dr. Robin, Dr. Matt or any of the Hildebrand Dental team members today.
