More and more adults are now enjoying the benefits of orthodontic treatment. In fact, more than one in four of our active patients are adults. While most adults seek treatment to achieve that smile they’ve always dreamed of, some patients are referred by their general dentist when the positions of their teeth make it impossible for the dentist to restore the teeth 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 the patient to choose from several options. These options may include conventional stainless steel braces, clear braces, or clear plastic aligners made by Invisalign®. Our adult patients agree that it is never too late to improve your smile!
