Seeking orthodontic treatment as an adult can be an intimidating endeavor. You likely know what it is that you want to improve, but knowing how to achieve your goals and finding an orthodontist qualified to provide your desired results can be a daunting task.
We have developed a suite of services designed for just adults, and our extensive knowledge and diverse training bring together a world of experience in the service of our patients. This allows us to present a broader range of options and to deliver the best possible outcomes, whether your concern is a healthier bite or a more youthful smile and appearance.
The combination of our proprietary techniques and the latest orthodontic technology, means we can provide comfortable, clear orthodontic treatment without braces, and deliver the smile you deserve in half the time.
Invisalign is a comfortable, clear alternative to braces with no metal brackets and no wires. As a new technology that is highly technique sensitive, it is important that you seek care from a provider skilled in using Invisalign. Dr. Frey is member of the Invisalign’s clinical faculty, responsible for teaching the latest orthodontic techniques using clear aligners to orthodontists around the globe, and we are the most experienced provider of Invisalign in the region. You can feel confident that you are receiving the highest level of care available. In fact, many adult patients from across the country have sought out our Invisalign expertise for their treatment.
Recent advancements in technology have made orthodontic treatment for adults faster, more comfortable, and more convenient than ever. Using portable devices that deliver soft-pulsed vibrations and light in conjunction with orthodontic treatment, we can enhance the biology of tooth movement. This allows your teeth to move healthier, more comfortably, and 50% faster. This is especially important for adults because your teeth don’t move as quickly as adolescents, which is why we accelerate all adult orthodontic treatment in our office. Treatment often can be completed in as little as 5 months.
Impressions, the goop they put in your mouth to get a mold of your teeth, are no longer a necessary part of treatment because of the advent of digital intra-oral scanners. We were the first orthodontic office in the region to implement this technology. Using these laser scans of your teeth Invisalign, custom braces, and other orthodontic appliances can be fabricated much more accurately than they could have with traditional molds of your teeth. More importantly, the uncomfortable, gaggy impressions are not something you have to tolerate at our office.
When committing to orthodontic treatment, it’s often the right time to consider other aspects of care that may be beneficial to the structure and look of your face as well as your overall wellness. Your orthodontist is responsible for far more than just straight teeth. How your teeth and jaws are positioned during treatment has a profound impact on your facial appearance, aging, and broader health issues like obstructive sleep apnea. Relaxing hyperactive smile muscles using Botox, enhancing soft tissues responsible for the framework of your smile with dermal fillers, or supporting your airway with an oral appliance are quite often useful adjuncts to orthodontic treatment that improve the final result. Dr. Scott Frey has been responsible for training doctors worldwide on how to leverage these tools to deliver better orthodontic results. We have integrated these techniques into our practice and work closely with other specialists in the region to provide a comprehensive treatment approach for our adult patients that has come to be known as OrthoSculpture®.
