Adult Treatment

Orthodontic treatment is more popular among adults today than it has ever been before. Adults are especially interested in the cosmetic and health benefits that come with a beautiful smile and a healthy bite. A growing percentage of our patients are adults, and we offer a number of treatment options that are specifically designed for adults who may be seeking orthodontic care for different reasons. Depending on your treatment needs, the following aesthetic options may also be available to you: Clear ‘invisible’ ceramic braces, clear (transparent) aligners, such as Invisalign™, and other clear aligner choices, low friction, self-ligating braces as well as traditional metal braces. The new techniques and appliances we use greatly reduce discomfort levels, decrease the frequency of visits and also shorten treatment time.

What are some unique reasons that adults seek orthodontic treatment?

  • To enjoy the benefits of a great smile!
  • To establish a healthier bite, a more even occlusion, and functional bite
  • To make it easier to keep crowded teeth clean and maintain healthy gums
  • To prevent abnormal wear of the tooth enamel
  • Because fixing your smile is something that you have always wanted to do
  • To help with TMD/TMJ pain and headaches in cases where the bite may be a contributing cause
  • To enable or enhance restorative work that may be necessary with your dentist, such as creating space for dental implants, aligning teeth prior to crowns, veneers or other cosmetic dentistry.
  • Often times parents will decide to seek treatment at the same time as their children, if they have children already in orthodontic treatment. This makes sense, as they are usually the ones taking their children to their appointments! This makes scheduling more efficient and we can’t think of a better way to ‘wait’ during your child’s appointment than to have your own smile be transformed! 

Why are more adults getting braces?

Recent technology has made braces much more comfortable and less visible, and hence much more acceptable and enjoyable for adults. Some adults are interested in correcting problems with their teeth or jaws before they cause serious or further damage. Others desire to feel better about their appearance by addressing longstanding cosmetic and concerns. It is important to realize that even "cosmetic" problems can cause real damage to your teeth dental health over time. Teeth and jaws that are not properly aligned can cause early wear and tear, tooth decay and gum disease, and other problems that can be avoided with the help of a health bite.
