With the revolutionary, technological advances in dental science the last decade has brought us, there are now more treatment options than ever for adult orthodontics.  Gone are the days when traditional metal brackets were your only choice for straightening your teeth. Now there are a variety of aesthetic bracket systems that provide you with discreet orthodontic treatment options that allow you to continue smiling throughout your treatment.  Adults are now flocking to orthodontic offices around the country in higher numbers than ever.  As a matter of fact, the American Association of Orthodontists reports that of the 4.5 million Americans in orthodontic treatment, 25 percent of them are adults. Belmar Orthodontics helps patients of all ages obtain straight, beautiful, and functional smiles.  

During a one-on-one consultation with Dr. Hardy, you can decide together on an orthodontic treatment plan that will treat your aesthetic concerns while correcting any structural or functional issues with your teeth.

How Adult Orthodontics Can Benefit You

It is never too late to correct orthodontic conditions you have been dealing with since childhood. The benefits of adult orthodontics include:

  • Faster treatment time than former orthodontic techniques
  • Correction of life-time dental issues
  • More discreet treatment methods
  • Increased confidence and self-esteem

What Can I Expect with Adult Orthodontics?

Although some challenges occur when manipulating an adult, fully-developed jawbone compared to the more pliable jawbone of a child, state-of-the-art methods allow us the ability to correct crooked teeth for adults with remarkable success.  If you are looking for more discreet options for your orthodontic treatment we offer  ceramic, clear braces, hidden lingual braces, and Invisalign clear, removable aligners. We offer the latest technology in dental braces, including InBrace and KLOwen Braces. This software system allows us to design your perfect smile, then create custom brackets and precision wiring to correct your bite in a shorter time. Using these methods we can shorten the time it takes to achieve noticeable results while still allowing you to go about your life normally.  Dr. Hardy will meet with you for an oral evaluation and orthodontics consultation to determine your candidacy for specific procedures. Oral health issues, such as periodontal (gum) disease, will have to be resolved before the teeth can be straightened.   At Belmar Orthodontics, we are confident that one of our  adult orthodontic treatments will fit your needs and help you achieve the beautiful smile you have always wanted.

Why Should I Choose Belmar Orthodontics?

Locating a skilled and reputable orthodontist is a vital component in finding success with orthodontic care. Though general dentists can also offer orthodontic services, an orthodontic office specializes in orthodontic treatment and has the expertise required to deliver trusted results that will not just meet your expectations but exceed them.  Dr. Hardy earned his specialty degree in orthodontics through post-graduate education and training where he focused extra years of study on misaligned teeth, adjusting occlusion, and treating jaw disorders. Compared to general dentists, orthodontists spend 2-3 additional years training in a specialized orthodontic residency program and commit 100% of their practice and continuing education solely to orthodontic care.
