Orthodontic Treatment for Adults
You’re Never Too Old for A Stunning, Healthy Smile from Hi 5 Orthodontics!
Braces aren’t just for kids anymore. Teeth alignment can be changed at any age if your gums and bone structure are healthy. We offer a variety of treatments that are designed for different age groups – including adults. A new smile can begin today.
Orthodontic treatment at later stages in life can dramatically improve your personal appearance and self-esteem. Improving the health of your teeth and gums is equally important. Crooked teeth and a bad bite can contribute to gum and bone loss, tooth decay, abnormal wear of the tooth enamel and surfaces, headaches and sometimes jaw joint (TMJ/TMD) pain.
Good news! The new techniques and appliances we use greatly reduce discomfort levels, decrease the frequency of visits, shorten treatment time and may allow you to choose from several options. Your options may include metal braces, translucent braces and even transparent aligners that can be worn at night to improve mild cases of misaligned teeth.
During the initial examination, we will be able to determine the best possible treatment for your individual needs. During this initial examination, we can outline the treatment plan, time of treatment expected and the approximate cost.
A large percentage of our patients are adults, and they agree that it’s never too late to improve their greatest asset – their smile.
Individualized Treatment Options
We offer individualized treatment approaches. We work with you to make sure your treatment is comfortable and gives you the end results your are looking for:
• Traditional Braces are time-tested and highly effective. This is especially true with the modern styles and materials that we use here at Hi 5.
They’re not the only choice, though, and aren’t necessarily the right one for every mouth.
• Invisalign is an excellent alternative. Instead of wire and bracket structures, Invisalign uses—you guessed it—invisible aligners. These clear aligners are designed specifically for your mouth. They shift your teeth by exerting constant pressure, just as wires do, but never need adjusted or tightened.
They’re also safe to wear through almost any activity. Horseback riding. Tennis. Finishing Zelda: Breath of the Wild for the first time. You could even solve a murder mystery while wearing these aligners.
• Clear Braces are exactly what they sound like. Just like traditional braces, they will gradually adjust your teeth with brackets, wire, and a series of adjustments. The main difference? They’re practically invisible. All in all, it’s an option with a whole lot of pros.

Space Age Tech
That section heading isn’t just clickbait. We literally use technology from NASA in our dental work.
One of the coolest materials we integrate into our treatments is Nitinol memory wire. As sci-fi as it sounds, this alloy is able to be bent completely out of shape, only to return exactly to its original form. It’s so useful that engineers have built space rover tires out of the stuff.
That’s not all, either. We can speed up your orthodontic treatments with the vPro accelerator, and we can make your dental appliances more accurate than ever with digital scanners and modern x-ray equipment. These things allow us to make completely accurate, up-to-the-minute, three-dimensional computer models of your mouth. Both the outer structures and the inner!
Hi 5 Orthodontics is proud to use all of this and more because you deserve quality results.
