Great Smiles Don’t Have An Age Limit
At BCO, we believe it’s never too late for a great smile. The American Association of Orthodontists agrees with us. They even did a study and found that 1 in 5 orthodontic patients are over the age of 21. In our office, that number is higher. You’ve spent the last few decades putting everyone else’s needs before your own. So, let’s do this. You’ve waited long enough.
Orthodontic Treatment Is For Everyone
Considering orthodontic treatment for adults? Answer these questions in your head:
- Are your teeth crowded?
- Do you have spaces that should not be there?
- Are you suffering from jaw pain, headaches, or TMD?
- Do you snore?
- Are your teeth showing an excessive amount of wear?
If you answered yes to any of these, orthodontic treatment might be right for you. Plus, it’s important to mention, crowded teeth are hard to keep clean. This can lead to tooth decay, gum disease, bone loss, and recession.
Another reason to see Dr. Welsh is if you’re just unhappy with your smile. Even if you think it’s a small thing and it shouldn’t bother you, come see us. Let’s talk. Your first consultation is always free.
What Are My Orthodontic Options At BCO?
Today, treatment is more efficient, faster and more comfortable than ever. Best of all, there are as many treatment options as there are styles of jeans. There are traditional metal braces, ceramic braces, clear braces, lingual braces, custom clear aligners like Invisalign, 3D printed fully custom braces, and more. Dr. Welsh has experience in all of them. In fact, he’s a Top Invisalign Provider in Bucks County, so you know you’re in good hands.
How Long Does It Take To Get A Great Smile?
Some patients need a little more time in treatment, some need a little less. It all depends on your specific smile goals. However, Adult treatment does tend to take longer than teen treatment because as adults, our jaws have stopped growing. They’re not as malleable. Dr. Welsh is an expert at what he does and will take into consideration things you may not have even thought of, like bone loss, recession, or missing teeth. In some cases, orthognathic surgery is needed to make sure your jaw is aligned correctly. But, here’s the thing to remember, Dr. Welsh is the best at what he does. You can trust him to do what’s right for your smile and your oral health.
