Do you have less-than-straight teeth or an abnormal bite, but never wore braces as a child? Well, you may want to consider braces now that you’re an adult. Braces are a period of life typically attributed to the tween and teen years because abnormal bites usually develop between the ages of six and 12, but 25 percent of orthodontic procedures are performed on adults.

Dr. Frank Celenza of Celenza, Frank DDS, PC specializes in adult orthodontics. In fact, all of his patients are adults. When he works on your teeth, he takes into consideration your overall health, as well as implant, restorative and periodontal issues. At your first visit, he will review treatment options to help you find a treatment that best fits your needs and will make you comfortable with your new smile.

If braces aren’t a good fit for your lifestyle, Invisalign® offers a subtler approach to achieving a straighter smile. Invisalign® is transparent, adjustable and can be easily removed for meals and teeth cleaning. Dr. Frank Celenza has lectured both nationally and internationally on the benefits of using Invisalign® to coax teeth into alignment.

If you don’t have the smile you want, you don’t have to live with it. Come see us at Celenza, Frank DDS, PC in New York, New York, and we’ll gladly help you achieve your straightest, brightest smile. You can contact us at 212-327-2623 to schedule an appointment.
