For Adults

Orthodontic treatment can be successful at any age, and adults especially appreciate the benefits of a beautiful smile. Modern advances in technology and treatment methods have more men and women than ever interested in orthodontics. In fact, one of every five patients in orthodontic treatment is over 21. If you have always wanted straighter teeth, there has never been a better time to begin your journey toward healthier teeth, a better bite, and a more stunning smile!

For adults, the appearance of braces may be a concern. Our doctors are happy to offer esthetic alternatives to conventional metal braces. Please ask us if clear braces or Invisalign (invisible braces) are right for you.

Adult orthodontic treatment is similar to treatment in adolescents, but there are some differences. Adults may have some existing breakdown or loss of their teeth and bone that supports the teeth and may require gum and dental treatment in conjunction with orthodontics. Also, more frequent cleanings at the family dentist's office are often required to maintain healthy gums and teeth. During your orthodontic consultation, our doctors will explain the best procedures and cleaning schedules to follow in order to make your treatment comfortable and healthy.
