There’s nothing more important than a healthy and beautiful smile and here at Goodman Orthodontics, we want you to have one too! Your orthodontist in Manhattan and Riverdale, Dr. Adam Goodman, is proud to offer his orthodontic knowledge and training to help give you a straighter smile, no matter how old you are. In fact, if you’re an adult with a subpar smile or even just one that you feel could be improved, we encourage you to consider visiting your New York orthodontist for adult orthodontic treatment.
Nowadays, more and more adults are considering orthodontic treatment to give themselves a smile makeover. It may even surprise you to hear that about one quarter of our patients are actually adults! Orthodontic treatment for adults is incredibly similar to adolescent orthodontic treatment. The main difference between the two is because of gum disease as it can interfere with orthodontic treatment. Adults are more likely to have this disease, meaning that it’ll have to be taken care of before treatment can begin.
Your New York orthodontist, Dr. Goodman, can offer a wide variety of orthodontic treatments that are specifically designed for adults. One of the main concerns of many adults is that they’re worried that braces won’t allow them to keep up an attractive, professional image. This is why our practice supplies discreet forms of orthodontic treatment as well. For those patients, we offer ceramic braces (which work the same way as traditional metal braces, only the brackets are made of a clear material) and Invisalign in Manhattan, Bronx, and Riverdale. Invisalign uses clear plastic aligners instead of wires and braces, making it a practically invisible orthodontic treatment. Others won’t even realize that you’re wearing them!
If you’re interested in scheduling an appointment with your New York orthodontist, Dr. Goodman, for our braces or Invisalign in Manhattan, Bronx, and Riverdale, please feel free to give us a call at (212) 688-4663 for our Manhattan office or (718) 543-4300 for our Riverdale office. If you have any questions for us about our practice or our orthodontics, we encourage you to contact us and let us know. We hope to see you soon and help you attain a straighter smile!
