Braces for Adults

You deserve the highest quality of orthodontic care. As the highest-reviewed practice in Richmond, we hold ourselves to the highest standards, while cultivating a relaxing, down-to-earth atmosphere.

The best results stem from an informed process—on your end and our end. Our experienced orthodontists, Dr. Scarborough or Dr. Loflin, will explain every step of the process in as much detail as you’d like. It’s our goal to provide you with the knowledge you need to make the best decision for your smile and your health.

When is it too late to get braces?

We’re glad you asked! Contrary to popular belief, it’s never too late to get braces. The age you are when you decide to transform your smile and improve your quality of life is the perfect age to begin orthodontic treatment.

There’s more to a smile than just perfect alignment. Adult orthodontics can improve not only your appearance and self-esteem, but your breathing ability, chewing and bite functionality, and sleep quality. 

Your orthodontic condition affects every aspect of your life—esthetically and functionally. 

Options in Adult Braces

We understand that traditional metal braces aren’t every adult’s cup of tea. That’s why we offer different types of high-quality braces, including clear braces for adults.

Our adult patients can choose from:

  • Invisalign® clear aligners
  • Traditional metal braces
  • Damon self-ligating braces
  • Clear self-ligating Damon® braces

Whether you prefer a traditional look, a more discreet appearance, or a removable, convenient treatment, we have an option to meet your needs and suit your lifestyle.

Signs That You May Need Orthodontic Treatment

There are a number of signs that may indicate a need for orthodontic treatment, including:

  • Lack of confidence when smiling or hiding smile regularly
  • Jaws or teeth are disproportionate to the rest of the face
  • Difficulty biting or chewing 
  • Digestive issues caused by improper chewing
  • Crooked, crowded or gapped teeth
  • Grinding or clenching the teeth
  • Jaw pain or facial pain
  • Jaw shifting, popping or clicking
  • Persistent mouth breathing 
  • Poor sleep quality

What is the cost of braces for adults?

The cost of adult braces isn’t one-size-fits-all with us – and that’s because one size simply doesn’t fit all. One size fits one with us. 

The cost of your treatment will depend on a few factors, including the length of your treatment (based on the severity of your condition), whether you have orthodontic insurance, and the specific payment plan you choose with us.

At your first visit to our office, we’ll discuss your needs to create a payment plan that works for you!
