For Adults

You already know that braces straighten teeth. A beautiful smile is just one of the benefits orthodontics has to offer. Bringing teeth, lips and jaws into proper alignment produces a great bite and a healthy smile, truly a winning combination. Here are some additional benefits to orthodontic treatment as an adult:

» Treatment is effective at any age: Orthodontic treatment is always a change for the better, regardless of age. Today, many adults from 18 to 70 are receiving orthodontic treatment. The biological process involved in tooth movement is the same in both adults and children, so if the supporting bone is healthy, adult teeth will respond to treatment with wonderful results.

» Improved function and beauty: Crowded teeth are hard to clean and maintain and in time may contribute to tooth decay, gum disease and eventual tooth loss. An improper bite can be responsible for TMJ discomfort, grinding, clenching, jaw fatigue and pain, headaches and ringing in the ears. Our goal is always to improve function while improving the aesthetics.

» Less noticeable treatment options: Clear braces are available that blend in with the teeth’s natural color, making them barely noticeable. Invisalign®, an almost invisible alternative to braces, is often another option for treatment.

» Better self-confidence: An attractive smile, improved oral health, and increased confidence and self-esteem are a few of the many benefits achieved with orthodontic treatment.
