Adult Treatment

If you’re an adult who is considering orthodontics, you are not alone. Today, one in five orthodontic patients is an adult. And you’ll be happy to know that many orthodontic problems can be corrected as well for adults as for children. That’s because orthodontic forces move teeth the same way for a 40-year-old adult and a 10-year-old child. Dr. Joshua L. Johnson understands that many adults just like you would like to enhance their smiles, which is why he’s made adult orthodontics an integral part of his practice. Dr. Johnson offers several orthodontic options for adults and will recommend the best option for your individual condition.

Dr. Johnson knows that you might be avoiding braces because you don’t want the appearance of metal braces on your teeth. Fortunately, he offers cosmetic clear braces that can achieve excellent results, plus they are virtually invisible.

Next, Dr. Johnson offers Invisalign®, which is a revolutionary alternative to traditional braces that can give you a beautiful smile without metal wires or
brackets. With Invisalign®, a series of clear removable, custom-made aligners gradually move your teeth just like braces do. Invisalign® can benefit both adults and mature teens.

Finally, Dr. Johnson offers self-ligating braces. These revolutionary braces have a unique design that allows for freedom of movement. This means they can align your teeth more quickly and with less discomfort than traditional braces. In addition, self-ligating braces require fewer adjustments, which means your number of office visits will be reduced.

Remember, it’s never too late to get the smile of your dreams. Call (509) 328-1243 and schedule your orthodontic exam and consultation today.
