According to the American Association of Orthodontics, one in four orthodontic patients is an adult. We gladly treat adults in addition to children. If you need orthodontics as an adult, we are here to help. We can make your treatment as seamless and invisible as possible.
Invisalign is a very popular treatment for adults. It consists of a series of clear aligners that slowly adjust your teeth into their proper position. They are virtually invisible in your mouth, and you can remove them to eat, drink, and brush your teeth. You should wear them at all other times for the best results.
As another option, we can also affix ceramic braces to your teeth. They are not removable, but the brackets we use are transparent, so they are less noticeable than the metal alternative. Because they are not compliance-based, you do not have to remember to take them in and out. Moreover, not everyone is a candidate for Invisalign, so traditional braces are a great option for anyone who needs orthodontic treatment. Overall, they are very effective and popular.
In addition to clear aligners and braces, we also offer retainers to help keep your teeth in the correct position. We provide several different kinds, including clear invisible retainers (Essix), traditional wire retainers (Hawley), and permanent wire retainers (Fixed Lingual).
