Even though you’re no longer a teenager, it’s never too late to get the beautiful, straight smile you’ve dreamed about. Orthodontic Alliances offers adult orthodontics in Michigan City that can help you:We're able to orthodontics on adults just as easily as teenagers Read Transcript
Our practice treats about one-third adult patients. We're able to treat adult patients just as easily as children or teenagers in braces. Many of those patients opt to have fast-acting orthodontic braces to correct just their social six, not to change their bites. They just want to have happier smiles or better smiles because of the social media and the platform that they're working within and us having a picture-oriented society these days. So we're able to do orthodontics, just as easily as teenagers, on adults. As a result of that, we have different modalities that we can use for adults who don't like regular traditional braces. We'll use either Invisalign or we can use clear ceramic braces on them, so they're a little more cosmetic for them. If you're an adult who is unhappy with your smile, please give us a call so we can sit down and go over options that we can give you to give you more pleasing, happier smile.

Adults Need Orthodontic Care Just Like Kids Do

These are business professionals, teachers, construction workers, parents, and grandparents who have decided that now is the time for them to fix their orthodontic issues. We are able to give them the gift of the straight, beautiful smile they have always wanted.
Age is not a factor in determining what will and will not work to straighten your teeth. Rather than age, other factors come into play, such as the number and position of the teeth that need straightening. The length of treatment will depend on how much movement is needed to properly align your teeth. Your options may include the following:
- Traditional Braces – This is the straightening method that everyone is used to seeing. You will have metal brackets and wires that will move your teeth into alignment over time, typically one to three years. Your orthodontist will go over what the process involves and whether this is the best option for you.
- Fast-Acting Adult Braces – These braces are a popular option among our adult patients. This treatment normally takes about six months to complete. The reason this method is so quick is that it focuses on just the teeth that show when you are smiling. This allows for less hardware and also less force to move your teeth into proper position.
- Clear Ceramic Braces – This option is a lot like traditional braces but with some added aesthetic changes that make your treatment discreet.
- Invisalign – This orthodontic option allows us to correctly position your teeth in a nearly invisible way.
Get Started on Your New Smile Now
Not everyone had the opportunity to get their teeth properly taken care of when they were a child. For some, orthodontic care was a luxury their family could not afford. Your teeth may have needed straightening years ago, but it just wasn’t possible then. This may have left you with a smile you’d like to correct but didn’t think you could because of your age. Dr. Randy Schmidt and Dr. Evan Schmidt want you to know that crooked teeth do not have to be a life sentence.
Orthodontic Alliances wants to help you get the smile you have always wanted, no matter what age you may be. Regardless of whether you want your whole mouth corrected or are just worried about the teeth that show when you smile, we have many adult orthodontic options that can help.
