Orthodontics is not just for kids anymore

As parents we worry about our kids getting cavities.  For us grown-ups,  our greater risk is actually gum disease, or periodontal disease.  In fact, periodontal disease is the #1 cause of tooth loss in adults. 
In dentistry, we focus on 1) treatment of periodontal infection with therapeutics and lasers and 2) prevention of further disease. 

A Straighter Smile is a Healthier Smile

Great home care and regular visits for xrays and cleanings are important, but for adults with crowded and misaligned teeth, keeping the teeth surfaces clean can be more difficult.

When teeth are properly aligned, this helps the gums fit more securely around the teeth, allowing for the strongest and healthiest defense against potential periodontal problems.

Many of our adult patients have enjoyed the benefits of Invisalign® clear orthodontics.  These comfortable and clear aligners gently and gradually begin to move your teeth into the proper position - without unsightly brackets and wires.
