Orthodontics for Adults

Orthodontic treatment can be successful at any age, and adults especially appreciate the benefits of a beautiful smile. In fact, one in every five patients in orthodontic treatment is over 21. Orthodontic treatment in adults is used for many reasons including:

  • Creating straighter, more confident smiles
  • Making cleaning easier, therefore reducing future dental problems
  • Preparing the teeth for restorations such as bridges, implants, and veneers by a cosmetic dentist
  • Reducing tooth wear and gum problems by correcting the bite

The following video highlights some of the above situations.

Many adults have avoided orthodontic treatment for fear of appearing like a teenager. At Emerson Orthodontics, we have you covered! As Oklahoma’s only Center of Excellence, we have been discretely giving adults great smiles and bites for the last 7 years using Incognito Braces. Incognito are custom, completely hidden braces that discretely correct your smile. Incognito can handle everything from 4-6 month tune-ups for adults that lost their retainer 15 years ago, to complex, full adult orthodontic cases. We also have Tulsa's only 100% cosmetic orthodontic office. Click the Esthetique Boutique tab above for more information.

I have hated my teeth since I can remember! Finally just after my 50th birthday I can smile and be proud of my teeth! No more putting my hand over my mouth or smiling without teeth! I got my braces off today (after only 11 months worn)!!! Thank you Dr. Emerson and Thanks to your wonderful staff!!! Everyone there is wonderful. Dr. Emerson you did exactly what you said you would do and it looks better than I could have ever imagined!!! Thank you!!


I previously worked in the dental field myself for 25 years so I'm pretty picky when it comes to doctors. Emerson Orthodontics "had me at hello"! Aside from being extremely efficient, the doctor and his (obviously well picked) staff are warm, welcoming and friendly. The exact type of office I would have enjoyed working with! Which explains why I chose them for myself and my children's orthodontic treatment!!
