Adult Treatment

About 30% of orthodontic patients are adults who desire a beautiful, dynamite smile.

Straight teeth are not only more attractive, but they are healthier teeth, as they can be cleaned and maintained easier. A proper bite is also important for the long term health of your teeth and TMJ (jaw joint). Orthodontic treatment is an investment in your overall dental, medical and psychological well-being. Clear braces and Invisalign® are making adult correction hardly noticeable, and the results are amazing.

Straight Teeth, No Braces – No Kidding!

There is a new alternative to straightening teeth without braces called Invisalign. It is a series of clear plastic trays or aligners worn over the teeth that move the teeth in small increments until our final goal is achieved. Each aligner is worn full-time for about two weeks, removing them only to eat and brush your teeth. They are virtually invisible. Unfortunately, Invisalign is not intended for everyone, especially children and more significant orthodontic corrections.
