At Victor Pardi, DDS, our Stamford braces specialist has several different options for our patients of all ages considering braces, allowing for an orthodontic treatment that best suits the individual needs of each patient. We offer a variety of treatments that are designed for different age groups – including adults. Your options may include metal braces, translucent braces, or transparent aligners that can be worn to improve mild cases of misaligned teeth.
While many people have corrective orthodontic procedures done early in their lives, it is not uncommon for adults and even seniors to undergo orthodontic treatments. In fact, currently almost 20% of all orthodontic patients are adults. At first the idea of braces as an adult may seem unaesthetic or uncomfortable. In order to address this issue, Dr. Pardi, your Stamford braces specialist, offers clear braces. This allows us to straighten your teeth by using a series of clear, customized, removable appliances called aligners. They are virtually undetectable, so hardly anyone will realize you’re wearing them. These aligners are designed to move your teeth in small steps to the desired final position prescribed by your doctor. Of course, we also offer traditional braces that utilize brackets and wires to gradually fix your malocclusion. They come in clear and a variety of color and material choices. Among the most common complaints when dealing with orthodontic treatment is that braces are unaesthetic and unattractive, especially from our adult patients. Dr. Pardi can in many cases place ceramic or translucent braces which are much less noticeable. In addition to this, in some cases, Dr. Pardi may place the braces on the lingual (inner side) of the teeth so that they are nearly invisible. Ask the office staff about what options are available.
Orthodontics aren’t just for kids, and you’re never too old to start smiling your most beautiful smile yet. So if you’re looking to straighten your teeth, whether for cosmetic or medical purposes, then you should call the office of Victor Pardi, DDS today. Our Stamford braces specialist will be more than happy to discuss the varied options for your braces, and help you decide if orthodontic treatment is the right choice for you.
