A growing number of adults are seeking orthodontics to polish their smile. Adults with healthy teeth and supporting structures are never too old for treatment. We encourage you to take advantage of the lifelong benefits of orthodontics!
Our adult patients have made the choice to enjoy the life of confidence that an attractive, healthy smile brings them. We offer the latest technology to meet your demands, including clear braces that allow you to enhance your image without getting in the way of daily life.
Why Treatment Matters
Orthodontic treatment can be extremely beneficial for adults. If your teeth or jaws aren’t properly aligned, you may have difficulty biting and chewing food. This could cause the teeth to wear unevenly and lead to eventual tooth loss if the problem goes untreated. Ensuring straight teeth also makes it easier to keep them clean compared to crooked or crowded teeth, which are harder to reach.
Treatment Options for Adults
Our various braces options offer you more choices to find the perfect fit for your lifestyle. You can choose either traditional metal or clear brackets. Plus, you have the option of colored, clear, or silver ligature ties for use with either type of bracket, which can be changed at every regular appointment. Many patients prefer clear or silver ties to minimize the appearance of braces.

Some Quick Facts
Patients do not need a referral; however, we do require that they have had a regular cleaning and checkup with their general dentist within the last 6 months prior to beginning any active treatment.
The amount of time a patient will be in orthodontic treatment depends upon the complexity of the individual case. The average treatment duration for a comprehensive treatment plan is anywhere from 18-24 months. The average treatment duration for an early treatment plan is anywhere from 12-16 months. Every case is different and treatment times can vary depending upon how the patient responds. New technology such as the space-age wires is decreasing the amount of time a patient will be in braces. The warm temperature in the mouth activates these wires. This ensures that a patient’s treatment time will be even more effective.
Orthodontic fees depend on the complexity of the case, the age of the patient, the type of appliances used, and the estimated length of treatment. Since every case is different, a visit to our office for a complimentary examination will allow us to give you all the information in regards to treatment time and total cost. We offer several payment options, including an interest-free payment plan, to choose from.
