Orthodontics for Adults
Many adults are now seeking orthodontic treatment. 1 out of every 4 patients we treat is over the age of 30! Most often adults seek treatment for pre-restorative movement, relapse from prior treatment or maybe they just never got the chance to be treated as teens. No matter the case, Dr. Moles is well equipped to treat the adult patient.Book Your Complimentary

Early Treatment for Children

If there is something to be concerned about, Dr Moles will recommend the least invasive approach to treatment to ensure your child has the best chance at developing normally to ensure your child has a lifetime of healthy smiles ahead.Book Your Complimentary
Whether you choose metal or clear, braces are some times the most efficient tool for Dr. Moles to use to accomplish your smile goals. Dr. Moles places the brackets precisely where they need to be on the teeth. The brackets are then engaged with the wire which applies gentle pressure on the teeth to move them to the desired position. Regular adjustments are made to the wires to keep your teeth moving in the right direction. Expect to complete an adjustment appointment every 6-8 weeks. If you are choosing the more aesthetic option of clear braces, rest assured they do not stain!Book Your Complimentary
After you have worn your braces for the appropriate amount of time, we move into the retention stage of your treatment. It is VERY important not to skip this step, or all of your hard work will not pay off as you had hoped. Your teeth may shift around or move back to where they were instead of staying in place.
During retention, you will have to wear retainers as your teeth adjust to staying in their new place without braces. You should wear your retainers as recommended by your dentist. Some should be worn only at night, while others need to be worn almost all of the time.
Brushing your teeth is easier in this phase, since the retainers are removable. All you have to do is remove your retainer, and then you will be able to brush your teeth better than you were able to when you had braces. You should also brush your retainer thoroughly before placing it back to your mouth.Book Your Complimentary
