Today, more than 25% of orthodontic patients are adults. Orthodontic treatments are more accessible than ever with the introduction of cosmetic, less bulky brackets; Invisalign® clear aligners; and iBraces®, a new generation of “invisible” lingual braces. Orthodontic corrections can have a significant impact on your appearance and self-esteem, in addition to improving your dental health and function.Learn more

We have patients from 3 to 81 years old! Each individual has his or her own unique set of challenges to address, and adults often have specific expectations and needs when it comes to orthodontics. The reasons for undergoing treatment are very different from one person to the next. In some cases, adults choose to consult a professional when a chronic functional problem is affecting their lives or when orthodontic corrections are needed to reduce the risk of further damage on worn teeth. While in other cases, some adults prefer to focus specifically on the unaesthetic appearance of their teeth.Learn more
