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. Your new smile can begin today!
Orthodontic treatment as an adult 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. Teeth provide the support structure for the soft tissue of the lower face, including lips, cheeks, and marionette lines. By repositioning the teeth and jaw, skin can appear tighter and lips can appear fuller. We can often achieve greater facial aesthetics without surgery or the extraction of teeth by creating a treatment plan utilizing appliances that can expand the jaw and reposition teeth and gums.
Great news! The new techniques and appliances we use today greatly increases comfort levels, decreases the frequency of visits, shortens treatment time, and may allow you to choose from several different options. You options may include clear braces, metal braces, or transparent aligners that can be worn to improve mild cases of misaligned teeth.
During your initial consultation visit, we will be able to determine the best possible treatment for your individual needs. During this visit we will outline your treatment plan, expected time of treatment, and the 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.
