Orthodontic Treatment for Adults

You're not alone if you're considering braces or Invisalign. In fact, 1 in 5 orthodontic patients are over the age of 21. We understand the importance of a beautiful smile and first impressions. Whether it's on a job interview, marketing event, business meetings, or a first date we want to help you make a strong first impression. Here are the results of a 1000 person nationwide study conducted by Kelton for Invisalign:

  1.  Americans believe people with straight teeth are 45% more likely to get a job compared to someone who has crooked teeth

  2. People with straight teeth are believed to be 58% more likely to be successful and wealthy.

  3. People with straight teeth are perceived to be 21% happier, 47% healthier, and 38% smarter than people with crooked teeth.


We have a variety or treatment options to make you feel a bit more comfortable going through treatment. We offer a variety of esthetic options including clear braces, lingual braces, and Invisalign to patients. The average treatment time is about 22 months, but we will make sure to tell you our estimated treatment time during our complimentary consultation. We do offer ways to speed up treatment, and we can discuss these options during your consultation.

Orthodontic treatment for teens may consist of metal braces, clear braces, Invisalign or other appliances. The goal of treatment would be to:

  • Correct the width of the upper and/or lower arches to improve the smile

  • Correct crowding in the upper and/or lower arches

  • Close open bites

  • Correct excessive overjet and overbites

  • Assist in determining if your child has any conditions affecting his or her airway

    • Provide treatment if necessary​

  • Orthognathic Surgery (Jaw surgery) to correct skeletal imbalances

The conditions our orthodontist will look for are:

  • Crowding of permanent teeth

  • Impacted or ectopic (misaligned) permanent teeth

  • Retained primary (baby) teeth

  • Thumb or finger habits

  • Mouth breathing

  • Open bites (teeth not touching in the front of the mouth)

  • Crossbites (teeth that do not come together normally)

    • Can be in the front or back of the mouth​

We've provided some photos below of some of the conditions we look for.


We will determine if your child needs orthodontic treatment with an appliance and/or braces during our complimentary consultation.

Open Bite - Orthodontics

Anterior open bites may be due to digit, tongue, object habits, and improper growth of the jaws. In children, this should be addressed as soon as possible. In adults it may be possible to close the open bite non-surgically, but please consult an orthodontic specialist.
