For Adults

Three orthodontic patients smiling

Orthodontics for adults especially show the benefits of a beautiful smile. In fact, about one in every five orthodontic patients today is over age 21. Thanks to today’s smaller, less visible, more comfortable brackets, adults are finding braces more appealing. Healthy teeth, bones, and gums respond well to orthodontic treatment at almost any age. It’s never too late to get a healthy, beautiful smile. Rely on Paciorek Orthodontics in Syracuse, NY and Camillus to brighten your smile at any age.

Orthodontics for adults offers a multitude of benefits, including:

  • Aligning teeth for a more beautiful and aesthetic smile
  • Closing spaces where teeth are missing
  • Correcting TMJ (jaw joint) problems
  • Creating a more comfortable bite to reduce excessive wear on teeth and improve the ability to chew food properly
  • Alleviating Sleep Apnea
  • Improving the ability to brush and easily floss to prevent gum disease, especially for crowded or overlapping lower front teeth

What Our Patients Are Saying

My son is a patient of Dr.Paciorek. He had his braces put on about a year ago. I cannot say enough about Dr.Paciorek and his staff. From the first moment we stepped into his office until now the enthusiasm from his staff is palpable. They are all very welcoming and friendly.

I love love love Dr. paciorek and everyone who works with him! I got my braces off 9 years ago and people still tell me what a great smile I have! I came back to get a new retainer and everyone was still so friendly and remembered to ask about my sister and interests!

My wife Sue Ling and I were so impressed with how quickly the Invisalign system of treatment worked and how well the Alligners straightened my teeth! We were also thankful to all the staff - they are great!

Improved Braces Technology
Braces have come a long way! The new Damon® Brace System considerably reduces treatment time, and they are smaller and more comfortable to wear. Adults report the same level of comfort as children regarding orthodontic treatment. Typically, any discomfort disappears within two to five days.

Modern techniques, like the new titanium technology (heat-activated wires) and the Damon® Brace System, put less pressure on teeth while moving them more rapidly and efficiently. On average, total treatment time lasts about 15-18 months.

Invisalign for Adults
Invisalign is a great option for adults looking for the most discreet orthodontic treatment. It can give you a straighter and healthier smile with the convenience and flexibility to meet any lifestyle!

Aside from being virtually invisible, Invisalign also allows you to maintain better hygiene and requires fewer office visits. Give us a call and we’ll set you up with a consultation to find out if you are a candidate for Invisalign.

Frequently Asked Questions About Orthodontics for Adults

What causes orthodontic problems?

Most orthodontic issues are inherited and cannot be prevented, but some are due to habits or medical and dental problems. Inherited problems involve the jaws, teeth and face. Crowding of teeth, spacing, extra or missing teeth and/or upper and lower jaw growth abnormalities are some examples of orthodontic problems. Non-inherited issues include finger habits, enlarged tonsils and adenoids, allergies, asthma, premature loss of baby and/or permanent teeth, and poor dental care. Regardless of cause, these factors affect the position of teeth as they erupt and the jaw develops throughout the growing years.

Do braces hurt?

Absolutely. You should continue to see your general dentist for cleanings and regular dental check-ups at least once every six months as normal.
