At Dentistry Of Newburyport, we help adults and children to straighten their teeth while focusing on adult orthodontics. Adults have more options for doing so. Aligners resemble a clear retainer. They are made of plastic and surround the teeth entirely. At the beginning of the treatment, Drs. Mandic and Kuljic will use the impression of a patient’s teeth to have aligners created in a lab that will slowly move teeth into position. Every two weeks a new aligner is worn until teeth are completely straight.
Patients throughout Massachusetts like how easy it is to straighten teeth and the fact that aligners are clear and difficult to see. Adult orthodontics and these expanded options are primarily available because an adult has all of their teeth and a jaw that is unlikely to continue growing. This reduces some of the complications that can arise when treating children while creating an opportunity for more unique and innovative treatment options.
If you live in the 01950 area, we recommend that you schedule an appointment with Drs. Mandic and Kuljic to learn more about what your options are. Every patient has different needs based on the position of their teeth, bite problems, and their lifestyle. With that in mind, there is no one size fits all solution to orthodontics. At Dentistry Of Newburyport, we create a customized treatment plan based on the needs and goals of each patient.
During your consultation and examination we can discuss these options in further detail along with what life will be like, how often you need to come in for checkups, and how long the process should take. Once you have information on adult orthodontics, you can easily determine which treatment option will fit your lifestyle and smile goals. Our courteous staff will make the process go as smoothly as possible. Call 978-703-0133 to schedule your appointment and learn more about adult orthodontics.
