Orthodontics For Adults


Adults who are considering smile correction, you may be thinking about the cosmetic improvements that accompany exceptional orthodontic care. However, aesthetic improvements are not the only advantage of quality orthodontic treatment with Hidden Valley Orthodontics. Improving the alignment of your teeth and jaw can significantly impact your oral health in a positive way.

Crooked teeth and misaligned bite are shown to contribute to gum loss, tooth decay, abnormal wearing of enamel, bone loss, and even the worsening of TMJ/TMD symptoms like jaw and joint pain. Why risk so much trouble over a problem that can be corrected? Hidden Valley Orthodontics has been providing adult braces and other orthodontic treatment to adults with orthodontic issues of all kinds for more than 30 years.

For adults seeking orthodontic treatment, this is good news! We are passionate about providing quality orthodontic treatment in a comfortable patient atmosphere.

At Hidden Valley Orthodontics, we give you options, because your comfort is our responsibility. A beautiful smile and good oral health will improve your well-being and self-confidence.

Hidden Valley Orthodontics believes it is never too late to improve your smile and provides a variety of options for adults interested in smile correction.

Adults who choose to schedule a complimentary orthodontic evaluation will find themselves met with a handful of potential treatment options. Dr. Fortney strives to remain on the forefront of orthodontic technology, and our array of available treatments reflects that effort.

Most people know about metal braces, but advanced technology has also led to the development of clear braces. These blend more with your teeth and give you an additional option for cases that require traditional brackets.

Technology has also provided us with Invisalign® clear aligners, a popular option for adults these days. Dr. Fortney is one of the leading experts in the area when it comes to Invisalign®. She is an Elite Preferred Provider, which means that she has treated numerous cases using this method, and has the ability through experience to treat many cases with Invisalign that others say they cannot.

Upon your first evaluation, you and Dr. Fortney will determine the best treatment path for your diagnosis. She will develop and outline your treatment plan, creating an expected timeline and estimating an approximate cost. Many of our patients are adults, and they unanimously agree that it is never too late to improve your greatest asset – your smile.

Orthodontic treatment for adults can be successful at any age. Adults especially appreciate the benefits of a beautiful smile. One of every five patients in orthodontic treatment is over the age of 21.

Dr. Fortney is a Top 1% Provider for Invisalign, an excellent tool to treat adults.
