Adult Treatment

At Hoskinson Orthodontics, we are proud of the high-quality treatment we provide to patients in the Scotia, Schenectady, Glenville, and Amsterdam areas. When people think about orthodontics and braces, they often picture teenagers and metal braces, but this is a notion of the past.

If you think you might be a candidate for adult orthodontic treatment, contact our Scotia, NY office today and check out some of the reasons why adults come to us for orthodontic treatment below!

What Are The Benefits of Adult Orthodontic Treatment?

No matter the age of the patient, orthodontics is about a lot more than creating a beautiful smile. Both youth and adult orthodontics can improve the health of your bones, teeth, and gums depending on the patient, and it is never too late to begin the process! Additionally, adult orthodontic treatment today has vastly improved from what you may remember as a child.

A Brilliant Confidence-Boost

One of the most popular benefits is the end result of a beautiful new smile. Adult orthodontic treatment can improve your personal appearance and self-esteem. While this is the benefit that attracts most adult patients, there are many other benefits that come with undergoing the orthodontic treatment process.

Avoid Or Reduce Further Health Concerns

A desire to feel confident in their smile attracts many patients across the Glenville, Amsterdam, Scotia, and Schenectady areas to receive our Scotia adult orthodontic treatment. However, making sure you have a healthy smile is even more important. An unhealthy smile can lead to:

  • Gum and bone loss
  • Tooth decay
  • Abnormal wear of tooth enamel
  • Headaches
  • Jaw joint pain (TMJ)

If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, we highly recommend that you come to our Scotia orthodontic office for a consultation with Dr. Hoskinson on adult orthodontic options.

Our Expanded Orthodontic Options

The new techniques and appliances at Hoskinson Orthodontics reduce discomfort levels, decrease the frequency of visits, shorten treatment time, and allow you to choose from several treatment options to find the adult orthodontic treatment that works best for you. From Invisalign clear braces to ceramic braces, the modern options for your treatment make more patients likely to choose adult orthodontic treatment at any age.

A Financially Reasonable Choice

In many cases, patients seek adult orthodontic treatment due to a combined change in financial opportunity and affordability of braces. Today’s braces are more affordable as well as more effective. You may not have been able to afford braces growing up, but Hoskinson Orthodontics is proud to offer a range of financial options to patients across the Amsterdam, Scotia, Schenectady, and Glenville areas. Let us help you find the best plan for your specific case!

Longer Lives

Beyond changes in financing options, there has been an increase in patients seeking adult orthodontic treatment simply because people are living longer. In addition to this, many patients have been able to keep their teeth into later and later ages. This gives people more opportunities to address any concerns with the structure of their teeth. Adult orthodontic treatment is a chance for people to address physical or social discomfort with their smile at any age without extreme pain.

The NYS Dental Association has closely monitored all developments with the novel coronavirus (COVID-19).

As we are aware the COVID-19 situation in New York is one of the most serious in the nation.  At this time it is highly recommended that dental offices only provide emergency care for our patients; and close for a minimum of 3 weeks.  As a professional office we want to be responsible and slow the spread of COVID-19. We will follow this urgent recommendation- the office will be closed for patient care starting Wednesday 3/18/2020.  As of now the office plans to tentatively reopen 4/13/2020.  Dr. Hoskinson will be available to see emergency patients –  a patient experiencing discomfort. The office will reach out to our patients and  reschedule all appointments once we know an exact date for reopening.

This is an extremely fluid, unprecedented event in our country.  We are being faced with many unknowns and personal challenges at this time.

Happy & Healthy Wishes to all,

Hoskinson Orthodontics
