Surge in Adult Orthodontics

adult orthodonticsThe Woodlands and Houston, TX

There has been a surge in the number of adults seeking orthodontic treatment over the past few years. According to the American Academy of Orthodontists, the number of adults seeking treatments such as Invisalign® increased 14 percent between 2010 and 2012, and has now reached an annual average of 1.2 million.

Houston dentist Dr. Scott Young is pleased to offer Invisalign to adults and older teens looking for an aesthetically pleasing alternative to braces. During your initial consultation Dr. Young will assess your teeth and gums, discuss all of your options, and help you determine if Invisalign is the right solution for you.

Why Invisalign?

Invisalign treatment is less invasive and often works faster than traditional braces. In addition, because the aligners used for this treatment can be removed, tasks such as eating and tooth cleaning are not limited. These benefits make Invisalign a much better solution for adult patients in need of orthodontic treatment.

While Invisalign is capable of addressing more pronounced malocclusion than many other cosmetic and restorative options, it is not the right solution for everyone. Dr. Young will happily discuss all of your options during your consultation, and work to ensure you are receiving the most effective treatment possible.
