For a Great Smile at Any Age
Braces aren't just for kids anymore. Today, about one out of every five orthodontic patients is older than 21. And more adults are discovering that tooth alignment can be changed at any age - as long as your gums and bone structure are healthy.
A Variety of Treatment Options
We offer a variety of orthodontic treatments that are designed for adults. 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 disease and bone loss, tooth decay, abnormal wear of tooth enamel and surfaces, headaches and jaw joint (TMJ/TMD) pain.
The good news: New techniques and advanced appliances greatly reduce discomfort, decrease the frequency of visits, shorten treatment time and may allow you to choose from several different options. Your options may include metal braces, translucent braces, Inivsalign® transparent aligners, self-ligating braces and AcceleDent® designed to shorten treatment time. During your initial exam, we determine the best possible treatment for your individual needs and we outline your treatment plan, expected treatment time and the approximate cost.
A large percentage of our patients are adults. They agree that it's never too late to improve one of their greatest assets in life - their smile. Your new smile could begin today!
