Our talented team and Lincoln, NE orthodontist will work with you and your family to ensure that you always receive the most appropriate treatments and that your needs are met with understanding and respect from us.
Lincoln, NE Orthodontics Options for Teens
If you suspect your teen could benefit from orthodontic treatment, you’re both likely to have questions. You may be feeling nervous about the unknown, and your teen may be feeling worried when considering wearing braces or aligners. This is an entirely common reaction, but fortunately, it’s also a temporary one! The bulky, uncomfortable metal braces of the past have given way to the smaller, sleeker braces available today. Modern orthodontic appliances are comfortable, stylish, and available in a variety of styles, materials, and colors.
Lincoln Orthodontics offers a variety of orthodontic appliances to teens in need of corrective treatment. Fixed and removable options are available depending on the individual case. These options include:
Lincoln, NE Orthodontic Treatment Options for Children
There is no exact minimum age for children to begin orthodontic treatment, but the American Association of Orthodontists recommends children receive their first orthodontic evaluation by no later than the age of seven. By this age, most children will have a good mix of baby teeth and adult teeth, making it easier for orthodontists like Dr. Willett to diagnose and correct tooth and jaw problems early. This reduces the risk of dental issues becoming more severe and requiring more serious treatment in the future.
Lincoln, NE Orthodontics for Adults
Many adults are now choosing to seek orthodontic care later in life. In fact, about 1 in 5 current orthodontic patients is over the age of 21! Modern orthodontics offers multiple discreet but effective ways to straighten adult smiles, including clear braces and clear aligner systems like Invisalign.
Some of the most common issues we see in adult patients contemplating orthodontic treatment are:
- a bad bite (malocclusion) causing the teeth to fit together incorrectly
- the teeth are too crowded, or spaced too far apart
- any abnormal jaw pain, or pressure that is caused by crooked teeth
Seeking orthodontic treatment as an adult can help your confidence and success soar. But improving your dental health can have a positive impact on your overall health and that’s more important in the long run.

Testimonials from Happy Families
We have our second child in braces with Dr. Willett and we couldn't be happier. The entire staff at Lincoln Orthodontics is just top-notch. We feel welcome every time we are in the office and our girls love everyone here. The results our first daughter had were so amazing that our second daughter couldn't wait to get hers on! I would absolutely recommend Lincoln Orthodontics to anyone! If you are having a tough time deciding where to go, don't give it a second thought...just go see Dr. Willett. - Brian
I highly recommend Lincoln Orthodontics! Three of my children are patients at Lincoln Orthodontics, and from the looks of it, the other two probably will be as well! Every experience at Lincoln Orthodontics has been a great one. They always greet us when we walk in, they are very respectful of our time and are very efficient. Their efficiency, however, does not take away from the personalized experience of each appointment. It is very clear that they truly care for their patients and for the employees that work there. - Amy
Just finished my Invisalign treatment. Very pleased with the results and the process. My smile is much nicer. Partly because of Dr. Willett's great work but also because of the super friendly and professional attitude she and all her staff had every time I visited them. They make me smile! - Daniel
