Orthodontics for Adults

A beautiful, healthy smile is available for everyone—regardless of age! At GoaLine Orthodontics in Frisco, TX, we understand the unique needs that adult patients have and offer comfortable, aesthetic options that fit even the busiest of lifestyles.


Common reasons why adults consider orthodontic treatment:

  • Correcting the bite to prevent tooth wear
  • Aligning the teeth to aid in cleaning
  • Moving teeth into the bone to prevent recession
  • Improve aesthetics for a more confident smile


What’s different about adult orthodontics?

Adults usually have more complex issues that come with time, such as recession, tooth wear from grinding, and dental work that need to be addressed and monitored closely. Also, since adult mouths have finished growing and developing, there may be limitations to what can be accomplished without extractions or surgery.

Adult orthodontic treatment can be complicated, but it can also be extremely successful in the hands of a qualified expert. Dr. Laurie Parks is a certified orthodontic specialist. Dr. Parks completed an orthodontic residency at Baylor College of Dentistry, where she earned a Master of Science in Oral Biology, as well as a Certificate in Orthodontics.

Most adult patients have great success with orthodontic treatment, whether they choose traditional braces, clear braces, or clear aligners. We are also happy to offer BRIUS lingual braces as an option for adult patients who would like to wear their appliances behind their teeth. Team GoaLine strives to offer each patient a treatment plan tailored specifically to them. Schedule a complimentary consultation with Dr. Parks to see which options are available to you!
