Adult Treatment

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

Orthodontic treatment at later stages 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 gum and bone loss, tooth decay, abnormal wear of the tooth enamel and surfaces, headaches and jaw joint (TMJ/TMD) pain.

Good news! The new techniques and appliances we use greatly reduce discomfort levels, decrease the frequency of visits, shorten treatment time and may allow you to choose from several aesthetic options. Your options may include clear transparent braces or transparent aligners in addition to metal braces.

We also offer Lingual or hidden braces. These include Incognito or iBraces, which are placed on the back sides of the teeth. Although not appropriate in all situations, this may be an option that works for you.

During the initial examination we will be able to determine the best possible treatment options for your individual needs. For each treatment option available we can outline the length of treatment expected and the approximate cost.

A large percentage of our patients are adults, and they agree that it’s never too late to improve their greatest asset – their smile.
