Adult Treatment  O'Fallon, IL

Although braces are typically associated with kids and teenagers, there is no age limit for orthodontic treatment. It is never too late to get the smile you have always wanted! Olson Orthodontics offers adults different treatment options to fit their lifestyle. We have many parents who choose to be in treatment at the same time as their kids!

After an initial exam with Dr. Lauren Olson, we will review her recommendations and your treatment options. Adult treatment can include traditional metal braces. Metal braces come in three styles including silver, champagne, and self-ligating. Our self-ligating brackets are smaller and easier to keep clean than brackets that require elastics.

Many of our adult patients like more discreet treatment options. We offer clear ceramic braces and clear aligners. Clear ceramic braces are similar to traditional braces but have clear tooth colored brackets that are glued to each tooth. We use 3-M Clarity Advanced Ceramic Brackets™ which are a great option for patients who aren’t a candidate for Invisalign® or don’t want clear aligners.

In addition, Invisalign® clear aligners are another option for clear treatment. Clear aligners are custom made for you from scans of your teeth. Dr. Olson will create a treatment plan and then Invisalign® will manufacture the aligners. You will move through different sets of aligners that gradually move your teeth to the desired position. The aligners are removable but need to be worn for at least 22 hours per day for optimal movement.

Adults receive a complimentary exam too! Call today or fill out our online appointment request form to schedule. We can’t wait to see the whole family smile!
