Adult Orthodontic Care
Braces arenít just for kids anymore. Tooth alignment can be changed at any age if your gums and bone structure are healthy. We offer a variety of orthodontic treatments that are designed for different age groups Ė including adults. Your new smile can begin today!
Orthodontic treatment at later stages in life can dramatically improve your personal appearance and self-esteem and can make an impact on you socially as well as professionally. Improving the health of your teeth and gums are 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. Take a look at our Before and After photos of actual patients of ours, and their great smiles.
Adult Braces Options
Good news! The new techniques and appliances we use greatly reduce discomfort levels, decrease the frequency of required visits, shorten treatment time and allow you to choose from several different options. Your options may include metal braces, which are now smaller and more discreet, Clarity clear braces, which give a translucent appearance to your braces, and the Invisalign system, which are transparent aligners that can be removed.
During your 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.
We also, offer a free consultation, so feel free to come in and speak with Dr. Cox about the future of your smile.
A large percentage of our patients are adults, and they all agree that itís never too late to improve their greatest asset Ė their smile.
