Find the Best Adult Orthodontic Option For Straightening Your Teeth

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 cannot or do not want to wear metal brackets, ceramic braces are a less visible way to straighten 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 are nearly invisible, so most people will not 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 only on the teeth in the front of your mouth, so it 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, No Matter Your Age

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 are not too old to straighten your teeth.
