Orthodontics & Braces for Adults

Adults are pursuing orthodontic treatment more than ever before.  In fact almost 25% of our patients are adults!  We have multiple treatment options that will enable you to blend orthodontics seamlessly into your busy life.
BRACES

Braces come in a variety of styles, materials, and colors. The addition of Invisalign makes orthodontic treatment much easier and more comfortable

Our practice strives to create your best smile. We offer several options for you to choose from:

  • Ceramic (clear) braces
  • Invisalign aligners
  • Traditional metal braces

How long will I have to wear Braces or Invisalign aligners?

The type of treatment prescribed to fully correct the dental problems will determine treatment time. Our treatments are fully customized to each patient, and each patient reacts to treatments differently, so while it may take one patient only 12 months to complete their treatment, it may take another patient 24 months. Treatment times can vary depending on how quickly your body responds and how much work is needed to give you the show-stopping smile you expect.

A patient’s cooperation is absolutely essential as they play a major role in the length of treatment time. Always remember to take care of your appliances and also to follow our instructions; this will truly help shorten your treatment time!

The difference between adult orthodontics and orthodontics for children and teens

Growth

The main difference between treating adults and children or teens is that the jaw bones of younger patients are still developing. For adults, these bones have stopped growing and may require orthognathic (jaw) surgery to correct the position of the jaws.

Gum or bone loss (periodontal disease)

Adults are more likely than children to experience gum recession or even bone loss due to gingivitis or advanced periodontal disease. Patients with straighter teeth are less likely to get gum disease.

Worn or missing teeth

Over time teeth can become worn down and shift into different positions that can only be corrected with orthodontic care. Missing teeth can cause other teeth to shift and tilt, creating a bad bite and increasing the possibility of gum disease.

Incomplete orthodontic treatment as a teen

Many adults received some orthodontic treatment as a child or teen, but never completed their treatment. As an adult, they choose to complete their orthodontic treatment to achieve the healthy, beautiful smile they always wanted.

Why should you consider orthodontic treatment?

A beautiful smile builds confidence

Orthodontic treatment can help boost your self-confidence, giving you a better quality of life and the freedom to smile without holding back!

Straight teeth are healthy teeth

Teeth that are properly aligned are easier to keep clean with flossing and brushing, and may help prevent other health problems.
