Braces for Adults
There have been tremendous advances in adult orthodontic technology in recent years. Treatments are faster, less painful and extremely versatile. That being said, adults don’t have that benefit of growth on their side. Adult bone growth is mostly finalized, so all the benefits of growth modification that come along with treating teens are obsolete. Adults can still achieve amazing results with orthodontic treatments like braces and Invisalign but it is always more advantageous to undergo treatment during teenage years.
Orthodontic treatments can fix bite problems including the alignment of teeth/jaws and usually last 1 – 2 years depending on condition severity.

Also known as corrective jaw surgery, this procedure is used to correct the structure of the face or jaw. Common conditions that require this type of surgery include severe overbite or underbite, obstructive sleep apnea, biting or swallowing difficulties, facial trauma, chronic jaw pain, cleft palate, and facial unevenness. This orthodontic procedure can be used for both health and cosmetic purposes. It is a viable alternative in cases where correction is not possible through regular appliances such as braces.
Once you schedule a consultation, we will evaluate your condition and whether you are a good candidate for orthognathic surgery. Our orthodontists will educate you on the surgical process, side effects, and aftercare. We understand the stress associated with receiving a surgical procedure and ensure that our patients remain informed and comfortable throughout every operation. If struggling with issues due to improper facial or jaw structure, schedule an appointment and we can discuss your options.
