Orthodontics that works for your life
If you had braces or other orthodontic treatments as a kid, you’ll be amazed by how much orthodontics has changed since then. Adult orthodontic treatment has never been quicker, more comfortable, or more discreet. With our top-of-the-line treatment options, “braces for adults” is no longer something for which the adult patient needs to brace themselves. In fact, adults currently make up almost 25% of braces patients in the US.
Whether you’re coming in for your first complimentary consultation or your next set of Invisalign aligners, we offer flexible scheduling and affordable financing that works with your busy life.
The Evolution of Dental Braces
Chances are when you hear mention of dental braces, your mind conjures an image of bulky, metal mouth wear. However, dentistry has evolved so much that all types of orthodontic braces are almost unrecognizable from their awkward and uncomfortable beginnings. Now we can treat all types of dental concerns with technology that is highly comfortable and effective, and that your family, friends, and coworkers may barely even notice.
Treatments for Adults
Damon Braces are the most advanced braces technology in the field of dentistry and orthodontics. Damon Braces are more comfortable and work faster than traditional braces, so they’re the only braces we offer at Hutta & Hutta Orthodontics. Unlike traditional braces, which require metal brackets and elastic ties to move teeth, Damon Braces use a self-ligating system to gently move teeth while protecting the health of your teeth and gums. The Damon System relies on patented slide technology that moves teeth with less pressure and more ease. And a Damon Smile doesn’t just get every tooth in its proper place—it also gives you a fuller smile with a wider arch, which studies have shown is more attractive.
In the fields of dentistry and orthodontics, the Damon System is largely lauded as the best in braces business. And it keeps getting better. Designed for even faster and more precise results, Damon Ultima is the most evolved version of Damon Braces technology. Damon Ultima gives our doctors more control over tooth placement at even earlier stages of the treatment process. Brackets are also specially designed for optimal placement on teeth and for smoother integration with the system. For the patient, this means a quicker and more comfortable treatment process than ever before. Hutta & Hutta Orthodontics is a long-time provider of Damon Braces and we are delighted to now offer Damon Ultima.
Want to smile confidently without facing the temporary lifestyle changes and cosmetic implications associated with braces? Hutta & Hutta Orthodontics is proud to provide Invisalign to adults seeking discreet, comfortable orthodontic treatment and their best smile. Invisalign is an easy alternative method to braces that straightens teeth using a series of clear plastic aligners. For many adults, Invisalign is the treatment method of choice due to the discretion and comfort of Invisalign’s nearly undetectable aligners. And, because Invisalign aligners are removable, patients don’t need to worry about eliminating hard or crunchy foods as they would with braces. An adult patient can expect to visit our office in Columbus, Ohio every two weeks for a new set of aligners, which gently and gradually shift teeth into ideal alignment.
Why get braces as an adult?
It’s never too late to invest in your teeth
There’s a common misconception about orthodontics and the typical orthodontic patient: many adults may worry that treatment is only for children and teens and that once we reach adulthood, dental issues are unavoidable and all existing dental concerns become unresolvable. This couldn’t be further from the truth! At Hutta & Hutta Orthodontics we are committed to setting the record straight, patient by patient. Our services are for everyone—the benefits of a beautiful smile don’t diminish with age. In fact, for adults, aligned teeth and a sparkling grin can have a huge impact on other aspects of dental and overall health.
Improve Oral Health
Dentistry and orthodontics go hand in hand, and there are many dental problems that orthodontic treatment can improve or resolve. Put simply, straight, aligned teeth are much easier to clean—which doesn’t only mean you can keep your smile sparkling, it is also a requirement for optimal gum health. Gum disease can be exacerbated by crooked teeth and, when left unaddressed, turn into gingivitis, a form of periodontal disease. When you invest in orthodontic treatment, like braces or Invisalign, as an adult, you’re giving yourself the gift of a healthy mouth for many years to come.
First impressions can make all the difference. Treatment options, like braces and Invisalign, can make significant cosmetic improvements for a patient, which can, in turn, boost confidence and improve many aspects of a patient’s life. No more covering your teeth with your hand when you laugh or eat. Braces and Invisalign have helped millions of adult patients live their most confident life. That’s something to smile about!
The Preventative Power of Braces
As we age, our teeth and mouth continue to change. Loss of bone mass can lead to a narrower jaw, plus our gums recede and our teeth shift. These changes, while natural and normal, can lead to a greater likelihood of gum, bone, and enamel loss. Investing in a straight set of teeth now ensures that these changes and their impact on overall health remain minimal. As an orthodontic patient now, you’ll reduce the amount of time you spend in the dentist’s chair later.
