Orthodontics for adults

Adult braces in Louisville & Mt. Washington

We live in a society that values aesthetics, and the phrase “smile makeover” has become more and more popular. Many adults are anxious to brighten, whiten and straighten their teeth to improve their smiles.

Smiles for the whole family

At Jennings Orthodontics, we often treat a child and then have Mom or Dad ask about treatment for themselves. Maybe their parents couldn’t afford treatment when they were a kid. Or, they may have had braces during childhood but lost a retainer or quit wearing it, and their teeth have relapsed. No matter what your reason is for seeking treatment, Dr. Jennings can help.

Orthodontic treatment just might one of the best ways to achieve a permanent smile makeover. It’s never too late, and you’re never too old for braces.

Can’t stand the thought of traditional brackets and archwires? Clear aligners might be the solution you’re looking for. Even if clear aligners aren’t the best method to address your particular alignment issues, you’ll be happy to know that our brackets at Jennings Orthodontics are smaller and more comfortable than ever, and we even offer clear braces.

If you live around Louisville & Mt. Washington, you can benefit from orthodontic treatment. At Jennings Orthodontics, adults actually make up about one in every five of our patients.

What to expect from orthodontic treatment

If you’re interested in orthodontic treatment, your appointment starts with X-rays. Then you’ll receive a full orthodontic exam to ensure your gums and bone structure is healthy. You’ll discuss your diagnosis with Dr. Jennings, get your questions answered, learn about treatment recommendations, and receive a price quote.

You won’t have to worry about extended treatment in our office. Dr. Jennings uses the newest techniques and appliances to shorten your treatment time.

The orthodontic technology we use is much more comfortable than what you may remember from your childhood. You won’t have to visit our office as often. For example, the archwires we use in our adult braces are of the highest quality available on the market today and are made of heat-activated materials that NASA developed.
