Braces in Louisville, KY
While we may think about childhood when we think about braces, braces aren’t just for kids anymore. People of all ages are reaping the benefits of orthodontic care because it’s never too late to get a straighter smile. If you’ve been contemplating getting braces in Louisville, KY, then you may be wondering if you are a good candidate. Our orthodontic team here at Henn Orthodontics can easily help you determine which orthodontic treatment would be best suited to your needs.
As we mentioned before, you don’t have to be a child or teenager to get braces. In fact, more and more adults here in the Louisville area are turning to Dr. Henn for braces. Here are some of the most common dental problems that have patients of all ages seeking orthodontic treatment,
- Crooked teeth
- Crossbites, underbites, and overbites
- Jaw misalignment
- Gaps between teeth
Braces can correct all of these issues; however, the most important factor is choosing the proper type of braces to straighten your smile.
We offer a variety of different braces for our patients to choose from:
This is still the most commonly used orthodontic treatment and advanced technology has made it significantly more comfortable than you may remember from your childhood years. We use sleek wires and smaller brackets for traditional braces that are comfortable and lightweight. Traditional braces are also great for correcting more severe and complicated misalignments.
These are similar to traditional braces; however, since the brackets are made from ceramics this orthodontic treatment is more likely to blend in with your smile. This is a popular option for teenagers and adults looking to correct more severe malocclusions who still want a more discreet and subtle orthodontic system.
These clear removable aligners make it easy to hide the fact that you are wearing braces. Invisalign can correct minor to moderate crookedness and misalignments in teens and adults. These aligners are worn for around 22 hours out of the day and can be removed before eating, drinking, brushing, and flossing. Aligners are worn for about two weeks at a time.
To truly find out which type of braces are right for you, you will need to come in for a thorough evaluation. We would be happy to set up your next appointment. Call Henn Orthodontics at one of our offices today.
