Straight Teeth Are Possible at Every Stage of Life

It’s not uncommon to need orthodontic treatment as an adult. One in four patients seeking orthodontic treatment are adults. Since we respect the time and money you spend on your care, we make sure you fully understand what’s involved before we begin. Your first appointment will include a complete exam, so we can recommend the ideal treatment for your needs. We’ll take digital X-rays and scans with our advanced technology. Using our outcome simulator, we can show you what your results will look like.

Depending on your unique needs, we may recommend:

  • Invisalign These discreet, removable clear aligners gradually shift teeth over time. It’s ideal for adults who want a low-key solution that no one will notice.
  • Ceramic Braces You’ll appreciate this more subtle solution to traditional braces. The brackets blend in with your natural tooth color.
  • Traditional Braces – Many adults who have more complex issues benefit from traditional metal braces. It’s more cost effective than ceramic braces too.

No matter your choice of treatment, we can help you achieve a healthy, beautiful smile. If one of the reasons you’ve avoided orthodontics is because of dental anxiety, we have that covered. You’ll find it easy to relax in our private care rooms. You can also choose from our sedation options to ease your nerves. There’s no need to be concerned about finances either. You’ll find multiple payment options, including a special pay-as-you-go plan for Invisalign.

Maintain Your Beautiful Smile With a Retainer

Once your treatment is complete, you want to protect your investment. Whether you straightened teeth with Invisalign, ceramic braces, or traditional braces, we’ll give you a customized retainer that will keep your teeth in their proper position.

We offer two kinds: fixed and removable. Your orthodontist will review which is right for you. If you receive a removable retainer, you’ll need to wear it full-time for at least 22 hours per day at first. Then, you can switch to nightly use. Your retainer will need to remain a regular part of your routine even well after your treatment is over.

We offer great orthodontic solutions that will help you enjoy a straight and beautiful smile – in a matter of months in some cases. Not only will you feel more confident in your smile, with straight teeth you’ll find it easier to maintain good oral hygiene.

What adult orthodontic options are available?

We give you two great ways to straighten your teeth discreetly. Many patients are good candidates for Invisalign treatment using clear plastic teeth aligners. If you have more extensive orthodontic needs, we offer clear ceramic braces. These braces are similar to traditional braces, except that they blend in more with your smile. If you’d prefer, you can also choose traditional metal braces.

Is there an age limit for getting orthodontic treatment as an adult?

To put it simply, you’re never too old to get orthodontic treatment. Many older adults choose to straighten their teeth and achieve their dream smile. Orthodontics will move your teeth no matter how old you are. If you still have your natural teeth, you can get orthodontic treatment and attain a beautiful smile.
