Adult Treatment

Adult Female with Braces

Can adults benefit from Orthodontic Treatment?    YES!

  • Improved Smile & Facial Appearance

  • Improved Oral Health

  • Improved Self-Esteem / Self-Confidence

  • Helps prevent or reduce further bone loss & gum disease

  • Creates a more functional bite & proper tooth alignment


Orthodontic treatment is not 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! 

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 and bone loss, tooth decay, abnormal wear of the tooth enamel and surfaces, headaches and jaw joint (TMJ/TMD) pain.


Good news!  The new techniques and appliances we use may greatly reduce discomfort levels, decrease the frequency of visits, and/or shorten treatment time. Your choices may include metal braces, translucent braces, or transparent aligners (Invisalign) that can be worn to improve mild cases of misaligned teeth. 

A large percentage of our patients are adults, and they agree that it's never too late to improve their greatest asset – their smile!  Contact us today to schedule your consultation.  We'd love to discuss your treatment options with you and help you begin your journey to a beautiful, more healthy smile!
