Questions & answers

Adult braces

Can adults receive orthodontic treatment?

Yes! As long as your teeth and gums are healthy, you should be able to receive orthodontic treatment with difficulty. Properly aligned teeth and a beautiful smile are always within reach, and more and more adults are seeking treatment each year. In fact, about 25% of all orthodontic patients are now adults.

What types of braces are available?

Our orthodontists can provide traditional metal braces, “clear” ceramic braces and gold braces. We also offer Invisalign® clear aligners. We will discuss your treatment options with you to determine which type of treatment will be most beneficial for your smile.

How can orthodontic treatment help me as an adult?

Many people consider orthodontic treatment to be purely cosmetic. However, orthodontics also helps to improve your oral health and function. Straight and properly aligned teeth are easier to keep healthy and are less likely to develop problems such as severe tooth decay, gum loss, bone loss, TMJ problems and worn tooth enamel. Orthodontic treatment is available for patients of all ages, so it is never too late for you to improve your smile and oral health.

You are never too old to straighten your smile! Many adults feel as if they missed the boat when it comes to receiving orthodontic treatment. However, the reality is that about 25% of all orthodontic patients are adults, and you can receive orthodontic treatment at any age as long as your teeth and supporting oral structures are healthy. Our dentists and team provide adult orthodontics to help you achieve the straight, healthy and beautiful smile of your dreams.

Most patients seeking orthodontic treatment understand that a straighter smile is more attractive. What fewer people understand is that properly aligned teeth improve your oral health and function. When teeth are properly aligned, they are easier to keep clean and healthy, which reduces your risk of tooth decay, gum disease, bone loss, TMJ disorders and tooth wear. Orthodontic treatment works to align your teeth and jaws so that you can enjoy a smile that is healthier as well as more beautiful.

We offer a number of treatment options to work with your lifestyle, from metal braces to more discreet options such as clear braces and orthodontic aligners, and we will work with you to create an individualized treatment plan that will help you reach your smile goals. When you meet with our dentists for your initial consultation, we will discuss your treatment options and smile goals with you and evaluate your oral health to determine which type of orthodontic treatment will produce optimal results for your smile.
