More and more adults are seeking orthodontic treatment to correct the alignment of their teeth and their malocclusion (bad bites). Drs. Anthony Nguyen, and Hesham Amer offer orthodontics for adults to help you achieve a healthier, more beautiful smile.

Orthodontic treatment for adults typically takes longer to complete than equivalent treatments for teenagers or children, as the bones and teeth in adults have finished developing and are no longer as easy to move. However, the results are just as predictable and provide equally beautiful results. Benefits of straightening your teeth include:
- Reduction in tooth decay
- Decreased chances of developing periodontal disease
- Decreased likelihood of tooth injury
- Reductions in digestive disorders
There are a wide range of orthodontic treatments available for adults. We know that your lifestyle is very different from our younger patients, and offer treatments that will fit your lifestyle and your desires for discreet treatment. Some of our treatment options include:
- Traditional metal braces
- Invisalign® clear aligners
- Lingual braces (braces attached to the tongue side of the teeth)
Prior to receiving orthodontic treatment, visit our dentists to be examined and treated for any pre-existing conditions, such as gum disease, tooth decay, and excess plaque.
