Adult Ortho

A large percentage of our patients are adults, and they agree that it’s never too late to improve their greatest asset – their smile.

Orthodontic treatment at later stages in life can dramatically improve your personal appearance and self-esteem. Improving the health of your teeth and gums is 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 or TMJ pain.

Good news! The new techniques and appliances we use greatly reduce discomfort levels, decrease the frequency of visits, shorten treatment time and may allow you to choose from several treatment options. Your options may include traditional metal braces, ceramic clear braces or transparent aligners that can be worn at night to improve mild cases of misaligned teeth.

InvisalignInvisalign® is rising to popularity in orthodontic treatment because the treatment consists of tooth aligners that are removable and virtually invisible. The aligners are made of a type of clear plastic and are comfortable to wear because they are custom-made to specifically fit the individual characteristics of your teeth. Because they’re clear, your teeth will be steadily straightening – and no one will know it but you! Call us today to learn more about Invisalign® in Tucson, Arizona.
