Adult TreatmentBraces aren’t just for kids anymore. Tooth alignment can be changed at any age if your gums and bone structure are healthy.
Linda J. Krebs, DDS, PhD
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. The days of metal bands wrapped around each of your teeth individually are long gone! Your options may include metal braces, translucent braces or Invisalign. 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 large percentage of our patients are adults, and they agree that it’s never too late to improve their greatest asset – their smile.
Rapid treatment options are available for many cases. If minimizing your treatment time is critical to you, we can discuss the possibilities for the most rapid results possible. In some cases, treatment can be completed in as little as 6 months! Depending on your particular treatment needs, rapid treatment may be possible with traditional orthodontics, or may require an additional procedure by a periodontist to stimulate faster changes in the tissue surrounding your teeth.
