Adult TX; Gadsden, Alabama Orthodontist
Braces for Adults

If you are an adult, and you think braces are just for kids, we have a surprise for you! Tooth alignment can be improved at any age if your gums and bone structure are healthy. There are various treatments available for adults, and a new smile can begin today.

Orthodontic treatment in your adult years can work wonders towards improving your appearance, confidence, and self-esteem. Improving your dental health is important as well. Crooked teeth and a bad bite can lead to gum disease, bone loss, tooth decay, accelerated tooth enamel wear, headaches, and even jaw joint (TMJ/TMD) pain.

Discomfort has traditionally been a fear of braces; however, new techniques offered by Dr. Wilborn greatly reduce discomfort levels, require fewer visits, and even shorten your treatment time. In many cases, you may have several options, such as metal braces, translucent braces, or transparent aligners (you've likely seen these advertised as Invisalign).

During your first visit examination, Dr. Wilborn will be able to determine what methods will work best for you, and will explain these to you and answer any questions you may have. Dr. Wilborn will also go over things like estimated treatment time, cost, etc. It is never too late to improve your smile!
