Remember when braces were just for teenagers? That’s changing thanks to Invisalign, the best clear braces available today.
More than 1.2 million adults had braces in 2012, an increase of 39% from 1996. Since more adults are getting braces, Invisalign dentists like Dr. Jeff S. Luffey, DDS, are fitting adults with clear braces to give their patients more attractive—and functional—smiles.
There’s no age limit to adults getting braces, so whether you’re in your college years or your golden years, our Invisalign dentist in Albuquerque, NM can help you get the smile you’ve always wanted.
Adult Braces—Invisalign Dentist in Albuquerque, NM
As an adult orthodontic patient, you may already have existing dental work, such as restorations, dental crowns and root canals. Since this can make your orthodontic treatment more complex, you need to work with an experienced Albuquerque dentist with the special training needed to provide restorative and orthodontic treatments.
Dr. Luffey is an experienced dentist in Albuquerque, NM with specialized training in Invisalign treatment. He is an Invisalign Preferred Provider, as well as neuromuscular dentist. With this special training and experience, Dr. Luffey can treat any orthodontic problem, including misaligned jaws.
It’s important that your teeth have a strong anchor in healthy gums and a healthy jaw bone. Dr. Luffey can also clean up any gum disease through treatments like scaling and root planing to ensure you enjoy your beautiful Invisalign smile for years to come.
You may have already had braces, but found that your teeth shifted without a retainer, or you may have had braces only to develop issues like TMJ disorder later. That’s ok! As an experienced and highly trained dentist, Dr. Luffey can correct the problem, no matter how complex. Just call (505) 294-4700 to schedule a consultation.
Aligning Your Jaw With Invisalign—Invisalign in Albuquerque, NM
A straighter, more attractive smile isn’t the only way adults benefit from Invisalign. Many adults suffering from malocclusion (misaligned jaw) also enjoy the benefit of having an aligned jaw that opens and closes properly after orthodontic treatment. As a neuromuscular dentist and Invisalign dentist, Dr. Luffey can transform your jaw alignment so that your bite is not only more attractive, but healthier, too.
One of the differences between adults who need braces and teens who need braces is that as an adult, your jaw has already stopped growing, so the treatment approach is a little different. Sometimes, correcting a bite requires surgery. Dr. Luffey can help you understand the right approach to your malocclusion during a consultation at his dental office in Albuquerque, NM. Contact us at (505) 294-4700 to schedule your appointment.
