Orthodontics for Adults

Adult orthodontic treatment has become a large part of our practice over the last few years. Recent technological advances have made adult treatment more patient friendly. Our adult patients value the improved appearance and self-confidence after having their malocclusions corrected. In addition, the health advantages of correcting mal-related teeth have become more obvious.

There are often several options involved in adult treatment, depending on your desired level of involvement. In addition to the newest and most comfortable braces, to include tooth-colored ceramic brackets, there are other techniques, including Invisalign, that our office offers as an aesthetic alternative to braces. As with all of our patients, our initial exam to determine your needs is complimentary.
