Adult Treatment

Orthodontics for Akron and Cortland,OH Adults

At Drs. Najem & Lehky Orthodontics in Fairlawn and Cortland, OH, we want you to know that orthodontic treatment is not just for young children or teens; people of all ages can benefit from it. As long as the bone structure and gums are healthy, tooth alignment can be corrected and maintained at any age. More and more adults today are seeking orthodontic treatment to improve their smiles and increase their self-confidence. In fact, about 25% of our patients are adults. It's never too late to have the smile you have always wanted, and we offer a variety of treatments to help you get there.

Orthodontic treatment is not only designed to improve the appearance of your smile and raise your self-esteem; it will also improve the overall health of your teeth and gums. By seeking orthodontic treatment as an adult you can possibly avoid the following problems later in life:

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

Convenient Treatments

We offer a wide selection of treatments to meet the individual needs and desires of each of our adult patients. Not only do we offer traditional metal braces and clear ceramic ones, we also offer convenient, cosmetically appealing treatments like Invisalign and Incognito lingual braces. Incognito lingual braces are placed behind your teeth, on the back side, so that they are hidden from view. By looking at you, nobody will know that you are currently wearing braces!

Invisalign works without the use of any brackets or wires. Instead, the Invisalign system consists of a series of clear aligners that you wear over your teeth for a couple of weeks at a time. These aligners are completely translucent and virtually invisible and will slowly move your teeth into their new, straight positions. With Invisalign, you can perfect your smile discreetly while still maintaining your pearly white smile!
