You look in the mirror at your smile, and you don’t like what you see — you love it!
You are so happy that you visited the office of George A. Hoop, DDS. Your teeth are straight. You don’t have a bite issue.
And you no longer spend time and energy worrying what other people think of your smile. You are comfortable being yourself no matter where you are.
Looking back, it all started when you visited Dr. Hoop to talk about orthodontic care. At first, you were hesitant to start this treatment as an adult. Now that you see the end result, you understand why it was worth the effort.
Do you want to feel like the person described above? Then it’s time for you to schedule your consultation at one of our offices in either Fort Myers or Naples, FL. The sooner you start, the sooner you can have the beautiful, straight smile you’ve been dreaming about.
Call 239-734-7737 today to get started on your journey.
Taking the First Step
For many adult orthodontic patients, the first step in the process is often the hardest. You worry what other people might think about someone your age getting braces. (That’s just for teenagers, right?)
You might be surprised that 1 in every 5 orthodontic patients is an adult, and that number has been growing for several years.
From a practical standpoint, you’re never too old to benefit from orthodontic care. From a social standpoint, you’ve never had more options to straighten your smile than you do today.
Finding Your Path
Traditional metal braces are incredibly effective, and they can fix even the most complex alignment problems from crooked, crowded teeth to open bites and everything in between.
But they are far from your only option.
Technological advances, such as thermal wires, make treatment less painful.
For patients who want to complete their orthodontic care in as little time as possible, you have the options of services such as FastBraces® and Six Month Smiles.
FastBraces use a unique triangular-bracket system. This changes how the pressure is applied to your teeth, and it can transform your smile in as little as 120 days.
Six Month Smiles takes a different approach. It can be a great option for patients with mild or moderate alignment issues. Instead of trying to straighten every tooth in your mouth, Six Month Smiles uses clear brackets and wires to move only the most visible teeth. By focusing primary in on the cosmetic benefits of treatment, you can change the appearance of your smile in less time than traditional braces.
For patients who want to be discreet about their treatment, we have two more options.
Lingual braces are placed on the backs of your teeth rather than the front. These can be as effective for many patients without attracting unwanted attention to your braces.
Another option is to avoid brackets and wires completely. Invisalign® uses aligners made from clear plastic to gently push your teeth until they are straight.
