Orthodontic care can improve the appearance of your smile and raise your self-esteem. In addition, it will also improve the health of your teeth and gums. By seeking orthodontic treatment as an adult you can possibly avoid these dental problems later in life:

  • Severe tooth decay
  • Gum and bone loss
  • Irregular wear of the tooth enamel
  • TMJ/TMD Pain

Treatments That Fit Your Lifestyle

We know that as an adult, it might seem like it’s too late to get started with orthodontics. You might also not want to be in treatment while living your adult life. However, at our O’Fallon orthodontic office we offer treatments that can fit into your lifestyle and won’t make you feel like an adolescent. For the more cosmetically minded adult patient, we offer Invisalign and clear braces.

  • Dr. Mooney is a Provider of Invisalign, the clear alternative to braces. With Invisalign, you can achieve the smile of your dreams without the use of metal wires and brackets. A series of clear custom aligners will gradually move your teeth, and they are virtually invisible. People won’t even be able to tell that you are in treatment!
  • Clear braces are very similar to metal braces in their effectiveness, but are more discreet in color. The translucent ceramic material blends in with your teeth, making these braces much less visible.

Treatment Times That Fit Your Schedule

We know that as an adult and possibly a parent, your time is more precious than ever. Our doctor and his team use the most advanced technology available, ensuring faster treatment times, fewer office visits and increased comfort. Whether you are interested in the efficiency of traditional metal braces or the cosmetic appeal of Invisalign, our team is well equipped to provide you with the top-of-the-line service that you deserve.
