Braces aren't just for kids anymore! Tooth alignment can be changed at any age provided the gums and bone structure are healthy. We offer a variety of techniques that are designed for different age groups – including adults. Your new smile can begin today!
Orthodontic treatment as an adult can dramatically improve personal appearance and self-esteem. Equally important, is improving function and esthetics, which can lead to healthier teeth and gums. Adult Orthodontics aids in optimizing other dental treatment by positioning the teeth and bite ideally for procedures such as implants, bridges or crowns. Treatment can also reduce the risk of fracturing teeth from a bad "bite", prolongs longevity of the dentition, and improves access for good oral hygiene.
Crooked teeth and a bad bite can contribute to periodontal disease and bone loss, tooth decay, abnormal wear of the tooth enamel, headaches and jaw joint (TMJ/TMD) pain.
Good news! New technology and the materials we use greatly reduce discomfort levels, decrease the frequency of visits and shorten treatment time. You may choose metal braces, ceramic braces or transparent aligners (Invisalign) depending on the complexity of treatment.
During the Complimentary Initial Appointment, recommendations will be made for the best possible treatment for your individual needs. Information about cost of treatment and estimated treatment time will also be shared.
A large percentage of our patients are adults, and they agree that it's never too late to improve their greatest asset – their smile. FINALLY Mom's turn to take care of her needs and to flaunt a beautiful smile (or Dad's too!!!).
