Many adults want – but are scared of – seeking out orthodontic treatment. The most common concern that we hear is the way that a patient will look during the treatment time. The good news is that there are more options than ever before for adults who want to correct their smile. In fact, you might be surprised how many adult patients we have!


The most subtle and popular option for our adult patients is Invisalign. This option straightens teeth through a series of clear, flexible plastic trays. The trays are custom made for each patient and use gentle pressure to move teeth into their ideal placement. The patient wears their trays for 90% of their day and only removes them to eat or brush. The trays are generally replaced every week to help move teeth into a beautiful smile. Adult patients – and all orthodontic patients – love this option because the trays are virtually invisible when worn. It’s likely that other people may not even realize you’re wearing them! They also require fewer office visits because you change your trays at home.

Braces -Damon System and Clear

Let’s start off with the treatment option that most people picture when they think about orthodontic treatment – traditional metal braces. We use the Damon System Braces and it’s more comfortable than ever. The Damon System are tie-less braces that don’t require tightening. This high-tech method moves teeth quickly and may require fewer office visits! Adults often like this option because it’s easier on their busy schedules. The biggest con is that it is a more noticeable treatment option than most adults prefer.

Clear Braces

We also offer Empower Clear Brackets, which work in the same way as Damon System braces but are ceramic and therefore less noticeable. These braces provide the same strength and comfort that you would expect from metal brackets, but they are much more subtle. Adults often prefer this option because the brackets come close to matching the tooth’s natural color and are therefore more subtle. Patients also like that the brackets are stain-resistant throughout the entire treatment time.

Treatment for Adults

Orthodontic treatment for adults has many, many benefits. In addition to providing a beautiful smile that will last the rest of your life, orthodontic treatment improves overall oral health. We also see a significant increase in the self-esteem of our adult patients – many of whom have been unhappy with their smiles for years. If you’re tired of wishing that your smile looked different, contact us today. At the very least, you can come in for a free consultation and learn more about your options. We think that you’ll see there’s a good option for you – no matter your age!
