Invest in your best self!

Adults everywhere are taking advantage of orthodontic care to improve their health and enhance their appearance. In fact, one in five orthodontic patients is over age 21.

Whether your are looking to upgrade your smile for asthetic reasons or want a better aligned bite and future-proof smile, orthodontic treatment can help.


Orthodontic treatment can improve your appearance, boost self-esteem and even enhance quality of life. Whether it’s your career or your personal life, a healthy, beautiful smile impacts the way you feel, letting you exude confidence and allowing your personality to shine.


There are also health benefits to a proper bite that can last a lifetime. Straight teeth are easier to clean, reducing tooth decay and gum disease. Bone and gum loss is minimized, as is abnormal wear of the tooth enamel. A proper bite can even alleviate headaches and jaw (TMJ/TMD) pain.

Everyone’s different, and that’s why we have choices for our adult patients to improve their smile:

Common reasons adults consider orthodontic treatment:

Malocclusion is when teeth don't fit together properly. This can lead to a number of problems with eating and speaking. Orthodontic treatment can improve bite function, making it easier to eat your favorite foods. 

Improperly spaced teeth can make it more difficult to properly brush, floss and keep healthy. This can lead to tooth decay and gum disease. Additionaly some patients have cosmetic concerns about over-spaced or crowded teeth. 

Common orthodontic problems can put undue stress on your teeth and lead to excessive wear and tear. Orthodontic treatment can help future-proof your smile by keeping your teeth healthy and strong. 

Gum disease can lead to gum recession or even bone loss. Patients who are at a higher risk of periodontal  disease and gingivitis often seek out orthodontic treatment to help keep their smile healthy.


Orthodontic treatment can help give you a healthy boost of confidence. Many people seek out orthodontic treatment simply to obtain a smile that they love.
