Adult Braces

Do you feel like your smile has been holding you back personally or professionally? Are you having issues with jaw pain, headaches, or grinding your teeth? Perhaps you’ve considered braces, but are worried that they might interfere with your lifestyle or appearance. At Molen Orthodontics, we understand. Having a straight, healthy smile can greatly enhance your appearance, self-confidence and your health, and you want to obtain that smile as efficiently and discreetly as possible.

When you choose Molen Orthodontics to design your smile, the outcome will be beautiful, natural looking, and compliment your whole face. Your treatment will never be designed to have a long term negative impact on your facial features, profile, or lip support. In fact, just the opposite! Regardless of your age, at the end of your treatment, you will have a stunning grin and a beautiful, younger-looking smile!

Why Get Braces as an Adult?

More and more adults are getting orthodontic treatment, realizing the enormous benefits it provides. In our image-conscious society, having a badly misaligned smile can distract from your personal or professional image. The self-consciousness created by crooked or twisted teeth or a malformed jaw can prevent you from taking full advantage of the many opportunities that life has to offer.

On a health-related note, a smile that is not well-aligned can cause severe jaw pain, can interfere with your speech, and can cause headaches, tooth damage, and sometimes grinding of the teeth. As long as your bone and gum tissues are healthy, it is never too late to obtain exquisite cosmetic and functional results, and with the wide range of options at Molen Orthodontics, you can get your perfect smile so discreetly, people may not even realize you’re undergoing treatment!

What are my Treatment Options?

For braces, we offer our adult patients the choice between small and comfortable Damon braces and discreet and effective Damon clear braces. We offer Damon and Damon clear braces to our adult patients because these systems work to straighten your teeth effectively and efficiently, with fewer office visits than traditional braces. We are committed to using the most advanced technology in our orthodontic care and in the braces we offer our clients, so your treatment can take less time and be more effective than with other systems. Besides Damon braces, another treatment option our doctors offer is Invisalign clear aligners. If you think you may be interested in Invisalign, definitely mention that during your initial consult so we can discuss the pros and cons of each treatment option with you.

To determine which of these options will work best for your unique needs, your initial consultation with Molen Orthodontics will be as thorough as possible. A systematic review of skeletal, periodontal (gums), teeth, occlusion (bite), and jaw joints is performed, and we will work with you to choose the best orthodontic treatment for your particular needs and lifestyle.

Benefits of a Beautiful Molen Orthodontics Smile

We just don’t create a beautiful smile, we create your beautiful smile—one that is wide, natural looking and supports your facial structures.

Regardless of your age, you can still enjoy the wide range of benefits that come from orthodontic treatment,which may include a reduced risk of dental related diseases, higher quality of sleep, fewer headaches and less joint pain, increased enjoyment at mealtime through more efficient chewing, and more!

How Much do Adult Braces Cost?

Orthodontic care represents a major investment in your appearance, well-being, and health. It is our mission to provide you with treatment that fits into your budget. In keeping with our mission to “change lives one smile at a time” we choose not to cut corners and only use the highest quality products available. Ultimately, we don’t specialize in just being good at what we do—we specialize in being exceptional at what we do. That said, it is our true belief that a price tag should not stand in the way of you having the custom-designed smile you’ve always wanted, which is why we offer our patients flexible payment plans and interest-free financing options.

If you have dental insurance coverage, it may cover orthodontic treatment, either through specific orthodontic coverage or through a Health Savings Account.
