Dr. Burden has extensive experience with full service adult orthodontics.

Adult Orthodontics

Fast, invisible Teeth Straightening

Dr. Burden has been straightening adults’ teeth for over two decades. He has advanced training in adult orthodontics and has completed hundreds of cases and he is a member of the Mid-America Orthodontics Society.

Today, there are more teeth-straightening options than ever for an adult. If you don’t want unsightly braces, there is Invisalign®, the clear alternative to braces, or ceramic braces. For fast straightening, Dr. Burden uses self-ligating braces that don’t require rubber bands and can straighten teeth in up to half the time of traditional braces.

Dr. Burden offers a complimentary consultation for adult orthodontics in which you will review which treatment options will work best for your situation and get any questions answered.

Teeth straightening is good at any age

Dr. Burden can effectively straighten your teeth, even if you have previously thought it was too late.

Adult orthodontics is on the rise! According to a February 1, 2012 article in the New York Times by A. A. Newman, “From 1994 to 2010, the number of Americans 18 and older getting braces or some other teeth-straightening treatment from an orthodontist has jumped 58 percent, to 1.1 million from 680,000 annually, according to the American Association of Orthodontists.”

A smile can be improved at any age through orthodontics.

A straight, bright smile can increase self-confidence, improve appearance and correct both current and future issues. For example, a misaligned bite can cause TMJ problems that affect your ability to chew, and crowded teeth can negatively impact the health of your gums.

We see more adult patients than ever before for adult orthodontic care. With adult patients, our goal is to get their teeth straightened in six months to a year.

During your next dental exam, ask us what dental appliance options would be best to help straighten your smile!
