Many orthodontic practices in the Columbus area focused on children’s care, however, at Polaris Orthodontic Center; adult orthodontic treatment compromises a major part of our practice. It is never too late for adult patients to enhance their smiles and oral health. We offer aesthetic treatment options such as Invisalign, clear braces, self-ligating braces and lingual (behind the teeth) braces. We also offer limited treatment options (just 6-8 months, in most cases) for patients who would like to only correct the positioning of one or two teeth, as well as accelerated treatment.
