You’re never too old to have a great smile. You’re also never too old to benefit from orthodontic care.

Today, roughly 1 in 4 orthodontic patients in the United States is an adult. Across North America, nearly 1.5 million adults seek orthodontic care annually.

A big part of the reason for that is the development of new teeth straightening options in the last few decades. It’s more than just traditional metal braces. You can learn more about your options by scheduling a consultation at any Orthodontic Alliances location. We have three offices across Indiana. To make an appointment at the one closest to you, call 219-809-6584 (Michigan City) 219-841-7795 (Portage) 219-440-6512 (St. John)  today.

The Time Is Now

Similar to the national averages about 25 percent of our patients are adults, too. These include people from all walks of life. We’ve treated patients who are just starting their professional careers and retirees.

If you are ready to improve your smile, then you can do that at any of our offices.

While metal braces are one option, it’s often our other services that convince people to move forward.

  • Clear ceramic braces — These can be as effective as traditional braces but less noticeable. Since the brackets match the color of your teeth, many adults prefer them to metal brackets.
  • Invisalign® — If discretion is particularly important to you, then you may prefer Invisalign to braces. With this system, you receive clear aligners that seem to disappear when placed over your teeth. They gently push your teeth to give you a straight smile.
  • Fast acting adult braces (FAAB) — These braces are designed to change your smile in about six months rather than the 18 months or more that it can take with traditional braces. This is possible because these braces focus on moving the most visible teeth at the front of your smile.

You deserve to feel good about your smile whether you are a young adult, a parent, or a grandparent. If you are ready to make a change, let us show you what’s possible.

Invest in Yourself

You can spend your money on a lot of things. You can go on a vacation. You can buy a nice camera or another electronic device.

You also know those things are temporary. Vacations end. Cameras and other equipment eventually wear out.

But your smile is something that you can have for the rest of your life. When you feel confident about your smile, it can help you feel more confident about yourself. Surveys have shown that people with nice smiles are considered nicer, smarter, and more trustworthy, too.

In other words, making a decision to straighten your smile can pay off in ways that could last a lot longer than a trip to another part of the U.S. or another country.
