Braces aren’t just for kids anymore. Tooth alignment can be changed at any age if your gums and bone structure are healthy. We offer a variety of treatments that are designed for different age groups – including adults. A new smile can begin today.
Orthodontic treatment at later stages in life can dramatically improve your personal appearance and self-esteem. Improving the health of your teeth and gums is equally important. Crooked teeth and a bad bite can contribute to gum and bone loss, tooth decay, abnormal wear of the tooth enamel and surfaces, headaches and jaw joint (TMJ/TMD) pain.
Good news! The new techniques and appliances we use greatly reduce discomfort levels, decrease the frequency of visits, shorten treatment time and may allow you to choose from several options. Your options may include metal braces, translucent braces or transparent aligners that can be worn at night to improve mild cases of misaligned teeth.
During the initial examination, we will be able to determine the best possible treatment for your individual needs. During this initial examination, we can outline the treatment plan, time of treatment expected and the approximate cost.
A dramatic change in dentistry has occurred over the last 20 years with the advent of Implant technology to replace missing teeth. This along with improvements in tooth colored restorations has created nothing short of incredibly beautiful and life like tooth replacement.
The replacement of a central incisor with an implant is present on the page, “Creating Beautiful Smiles”. Orthodontics alone cannot always accomplish everything that is needed to create a truly beautiful smile. In order to feel really confident about your smile and to make the investment in yourself seem worthwhile, it takes more than braces. The orthodontist, in collaboration with your dentist and other dental professionals, now has the technology to change your life forever!
A large percentage of our patients are adults, and they agree that it’s never too late to improve their greatest asset – their smile!
