Increased Interest in Adult Orthodontics
According to the American Academy of Orthodontists, 1.2 million adults now seek orthodontic treatment every year. This represents a 14 percent increase from 2010, and is poised to continue increasing annually.
There are a number of reasons more adults are now looking to orthodontics to correct both aesthetic and functional bite issues, but new, less obtrusive forms of braces are certainly among the top. Options such as Invisalign® allow adults and older teens to address malocclusion without many of the discomforts associated with braces. During your orthodontic consultation with Beaverton dentist Dr. Michael Negru it can best be determined if Invisalign is the ideal option for your smile.
In addition to Invisalign, our family dentist offers Fastbraces, a solution that simultaneously moves the roots and crowns of teeth to significantly reduce treatment time. Dr. Negru is a Fastbraces Master Affiliate and was the first dentist in Oregon to offer this unique and exciting orthodontic solution.
No single option will be ideal for every patient. Dr. Negru will work individually with you to help you choose the orthodontic option best suited to meet your specific needs.
