Orthodontic treatment for adults 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, as well as abnormal wear of the tooth surfaces. It can also contribute to soreness of the facial and chewing muscles resulting in jaw joint soreness/pain.
When our adult patients are finished with treatment, they wished they had started treatment sooner rather than have had waited so long. All have been thrilled with their finished smile. They agree that it’s never too late to improve their greatest asset – their smile.
Good news! The new techniques and appliances we use greatly reduce discomfort levels, decrease the frequency of visits, shorten overall treatment time and may allow you to choose from several options. Your options would include ceramic braces, metal braces, or in very selected cases, transparent aligners that can be worn at night to improve mild cases of malaligned or crowded teeth.
