Our practice treats about one-third adult patients. We're able to treat adult patients just as easily as children or teenagers in braces. Many of those patients opt to have fast-acting orthodontic braces to correct just their social six, not to change their bites. They just want to have happier smiles or better smiles because of the social media and the platform that they're working within and us having a picture-oriented society these days. So we're able to do orthodontics, just as easily as teenagers, on adults. As a result of that, we have different modalities that we can use for adults who don't like regular traditional braces. We'll use either Invisalign or we can use clear ceramic braces on them, so they're a little more cosmetic for them. If you're an adult who is unhappy with your smile, please give us a call so we can sit down and go over options that we can give you to give you more pleasing, happier smile.

Find the Best Adult Orthodontic Option For You
No two orthodontic patients are the same. Even if people have the same issues with their smiles, they may not want the same treatment. By coming to our office, you can have a choice of services:
- Traditional Braces – People have used metal braces to straighten their teeth for centuries for a simple reason – they work on practically any alignment problem you could have.
- Clear Ceramic Braces – For people who can’t or don’t want to wear metal brackets, ceramic braces are a less visible way to make changes to their smiles.
- Invisalign – For patients seeking to be as discreet as possible, Invisalign aligners can be an effective treatment for many smile problems. The aligners blend in with your smile, so most people won’t know you are wearing them.
- Fast-Acting Adult Braces – If your concern is primarily with making cosmetic improvements to your smile, this solution can get you there faster than full braces. This treatment focuses on the teeth at the front of your mouth and can change your smile in about six months.
Regardless of which treatment you choose, you will need to wear a retainer at least temporarily to keep your teeth in their new positions. Our bonded invisible retainers do just that.
In some cases, surgery may be needed as part of adult orthodontic treatment. If so, we partner with a trusted oral surgeon to plan your procedure to address issues with your jaw or facial bone structure that affect your smile.
Take Control of Your Smile
Across North America, experts estimate that more than 1.4 million adults are undergoing orthodontic care annually. Approximately 1 in 4 orthodontic patients in the United States is an adult. In other words, you aren’t too old to straighten your teeth.
