More and more adults are now enjoying the benefits of orthodontic treatment. About 25% of our patients are adults. While most adults seek treatment to improve their personal appearance and self-esteem, some are referred by their general dentist when the positions of the teeth make it impossible for the dentist to restore them properly. With the advancements in implant dentistry, missing teeth can now be replaced. It is often necessary to align the teeth so that proper implant placement can be accomplished. The state-of-the-art techniques that we use greatly reduce discomfort levels, decrease the frequency of visits, shorten treatment time, and allow you to choose from several options. These options may include conventional stainless steel braces, or clear braces. Our adult patients agree that it is never too late to improve your smile!
