For those patients that have misaligned teeth, there are many options available to move these teeth into the proper alignment. Straightening teeth can make them more beautiful, easier to clean, and can even stabilize the bite. At our office, we offer traditional silver brackets, clear ceramic brackets, or Invisalign®, the new invisible braces that use clear aligners to straighten your teeth.

Braces aren’t 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 treatments that are designed for different age groups – including adults. A new smile can begin today.

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 (TMJ/TMD) 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 options. Your options may include metal braces, translucent braces, or transparent aligners that can be worn at night to improve mild cases of misaligned teeth.

During the initial examination at Simpson Dental Associates, our dentists 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.

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