More and more at Gutsche Orthodontics we’re hearing from adults who want a straighter smile. Either they didn’t keep up with their retainer and are hoping for their old smile back, or they never had orthodontics and would like to see the smile of their dreams in the mirror. Whichever boat you fall into, we’re here to help. While many people think of an orthodontic practice as a place for kids and teens, at Gutsche Orthodontics we also love treating adults.

Comfortable, Effective Treatment 

Advances in orthodontic technology have made treatment more comfortable and precise than ever. Modern braces and clear aligners, such as Invisalign, are customized to your exact specifications as outlined by Dr. Gutsche. Combined with our (goop-free!) 3D scanner, you can expect better results, in shorter times, and a more comfortable experience from start to finish. 

The Benefits

There are many benefits to orthodontic treatment for adults! Here are some to name a few:

  • A confident smile: There is nothing like wanting to show off your smile. Misaligned teeth cause many adults to feel self conscious about their smile.
  • Healthier gums: Food is more likely to get trapped and cause plaque buildup, which is harder to brush and appropriately floss, increasing the chances of  gum disease (periodontal disease). Crowded teeth can cause redness and swelling of the gums.
  • Stronger teeth: Teeth are constantly put under pressure. Crooked teeth can receive more wear and tear and a misaligned bite can mean uneven force on your jaw. Trapped food in misaligned teeth can cause tooth decay.
  • Overall Improvement of health: A misaligned bite, worn or missing teeth can make it more difficult to fully chew food, causing gastrointestinal problems. Inflammation of the gums has been linked to heart disease and diabetes.

Adult Treatment Options

Damon Clear Braces: One of the treatments we offer here is the breakthrough Damon system. This revolutionary approach combines tieless brackets and high technology archwires that are clinically proven to align your teeth more efficiently and comfortably. If a clear smile is important to you, Damon Clear can be a great choice.

Invisalign: When it comes to treating adults, clear aligners are the name of the game. The Invisalign System is a series of clear overlay templates called aligners that have been generated by computer simulation to gradually move the teeth.
