Adult Treatment

Early Treatment

"I went to RTO on the glowing recommendation of my dentist. Boy was he right! Dr Steve and all the techs at RTO have been amazing! They are always considerate, conscientious, efficient and among the friendliest professionals I've met. In less than a year and for the first time in my life, my mouth, which was a mess, looks normal! I get my braces off next month!"

Even if you missed the chance to have orthodontic treatment as a child, it is never too late to have a perfect, healthy smile.

More adults are seeking orthodontic treatment than ever before. An attractive smile is an asset which will help you in both your personal and professional life. It is one of the best investments you can make for your self-confidence and your health.

Generally speaking, there are three types of adult orthodontic care that many times are intertwined:

  • Esthetic improvement for a wonderful smile
  • Pre-restorative treatment prior to implants, crowns or veneers
  • Surgical treatment in order to correct a skeletal disharmony

The big question: How will you straighten my teeth?

After digital photographs and a digital X-ray are taken, the doctor will evaluate your orthodontic case. Your initial visit, including radiographs and photos, is complimentary. As with orthodontics for children, we design an individual treatment plan for each patient, implementing a range of techniques and appliances to meet specific needs. We will discuss your orthodontic needs with you and help you choose the best treatment option for your lifestyle

New orthodontic treatments are constantly being developed. Today’s braces are smaller, more cosmetically pleasing, more resilient and more comfortable than the appliances used in past years. New materials have been developed so that treatment time is minimized. In some instances, removable clear aligners may be used to move teeth. The opportunity to have the smile you want is here and now!
