Many adults had braces in the past and lost the straight smile they once had. Many other adults have simply never been happy with their smile. Maybe you’ve never considered orthodontics as an adult because you can’t imagine wearing metal braces to client meetings; maybe it’s because it’s a big time and financial commitment to undergo years of braces as an adult.
Whichever boat you fall into, we have good news! My team and I don’t want any roadblocks in the way of you having a beautiful smile… or having it back again.
That’s why we’re offering a Limited Treatment option to the adults of our community where my team and I will address only the elements of your smile that are most important to you. That means shorter treatment times and reduced fees.
Our practice, Hickman Orthodontics, is an Invisalign provider with tons of experience...which means that your treatment will be virtually undetectable.
People won’t notice you’re wearing them
Invisalign uses a series of clear aligners to straighten teeth. And, unlike traditional braces that you might have had as a kid, Invisalign aligners are removable. You take them out briefly when you eat or brush your teeth - that means no food caught between brackets; no flashbacks to the middle school cafeteria for you. Most of the time your aligners will stay in so they can do the work of moving your teeth. The good thing is that they are virtually invisible so people won’t even notice you’re wearing them.
Sometimes the most minor fix is just what you need
While we do offer full orthodontic treatment for adults at our practice, we find that many just don’t want to make that commitment. Whether it’s financial or time restraints, Limited Treatment is a great option.
Together we will figure out which elements of your smile are most important to you. We’ll agree on a course of treatment to fix only those areas, and we’ll set an estimated timeline. Because of the limited nature of the adjustments we are able to improve your smile in a much shorter timeframe than for those looking for full orthodontic treatment.
You’re not alone
Adults are getting braces more than ever before. The American Association of Orthodontists (AAO) says that adults are getting orthodontic treatment in record numbers, and not all of them for the first time either. Not only that, patients are reporting that after treatment they feel better about themselves and their social lives. Most would recommend seeking out treatment for other adults. Major benefits!
See an Expert
There are many services out there claiming they can mail you aligners and fix your teeth. We strongly believe that even the smallest changes to your mouth should be done under the in-person care of a trained and certified orthodontist, and the AAO agrees. Dr. Todd Hickman has extensive schooling in both dentistry and orthodontics (obtaining a degree for Doctor of Dental Surgery with high distinction in 1996, as well as his Certificate of Orthodontics in 1998) as well as specific training in treatment with Invisalign.
Make sure you know who it is that is making changes in your mouth. What looks like a small fix could domino into major issues without a trained orthodontist looking at the full picture.
At Hickman Orthodontics we have treated hundreds of teens and adults with Invisalign. We know what we’re doing and we’ve treated cases that are both difficult (Full Treatment) and simpler (Limited Treatment). Our team strives for clinical excellence in a friendly and welcoming environment. We appreciate that you have a busy schedule and will make sure to have you in and out as quickly as possible - time is important to us! …. It’s one of the reasons why we offer Limited Treatment.
It gets even better. With our special Dental Monitoring technology, we can even schedule virtual appointments via your SmartPhone! If we don’t see anything unexpected, we will give you instructions to move forward - no need to come into the office. That means fewer in-person visits, more efficiency, and texts from me with feedback on your progress. Socially distant - check!
