Adult Orthodontics

 

Braces aren’t just for kids anymore. Tooth alignment can be done at any age if your gums and jaw bone structures are healthy. We offer a variety of treatments that are designed for different age groups – including adults. A new smile for you can begin today.

 

Orthodontic treatment at any stage in life can dramatically improve your personal appearance and self-esteem. Improving the health of your teeth and gums is equally important. Crooked teeth and a bad bite can contribute to or accelerate gum and bone loss, tooth decay, abnormal wear of the tooth enamel and surfaces, headaches and jaw joint (TMJ/TMD) pain. Orthodontic therapy can prevent and eliminate a lot of these detrimental side effects of malocclusion.

 

GOOD NEWS! The new techniques, appliances and materials we use in our office greatly reduce discomfort levels, decrease the frequency of visits, shorten treatment time and may allow you to choose from several options. Your options may include metal braces, translucent braces or transparent aligners that can be worn at night to improve mild cases of misaligned teeth.

 

During the initial examination, we will be able to determine the best possible treatment for your individual needs. During this initial examination, we can design a treatment plan, length of treatment expected and approximate cost that is most suitable for you.

 

A large percentage of our patients are adults, and the most common feedback we hear is, “I’m so glad I got my teeth straightened and got my bite fixed!” They all agree that it’s never too late to improve their greatest asset – their smile.
