As most people remember, the prospect of getting braces as a child was not a very exciting proposition. It is hard to remember back to a child who was excited about the idea of wearing metal braces on their teeth for the next year or two. However, now more and more adults are interested in getting braces to correct their less-than-perfect smiles; in fact, many adults now wish they had worn braces as an adolescent If you are interested in getting Harlem adult braces, you should make an appointment to visit us at Central Park North Orthodontics.

When you come in to get Harlem adult braces at Central Park North Orthodontics, you will discover that there are several great orthodontic treatments available to you. First of all, we offer traditional metal braces which are the most cost-effective way to go, and may be the most practical choice in some cases. We also offer invisible ceramic braces. These braces are made of wire and brackets as well, but the brackets are made to match the teeth so they are much less obvious-looking. Finally, we offer the Invisalign tooth straightening system, which is a favorite among many of our adult patients. This system uses a series of clear plastic aligners that are worn all day, but are removed for eating and teeth cleaning. The Invisalign trays are transparent, so people will not be able to tell you are wearing them, or having your teeth adjusted. You can go to work and social events feeling perfectly confident in your appearance. Treatment time is about the same as with regular metal braces. If you are thinking about having your smile straightened, contact us to make an appointment to see Dr. Washington. He will be happy to review your individual situation, and let you know about all the treatment options waiting for you!
