Many people think that orthodontic treatment is just for children.
In fact a large percentage of our patients are adults, and they all agree that it’s never too late to improve their greatest asset – their smile.
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. Patients of all ages, including adolescents and adults, receive orthodontic care for healthier teeth and gums, improved chewing from properly aligned teeth, and increased confidence from aesthetically pleasing teeth and smile. There are many options for adult braces and several types of braces available.
Straight teeth can make you look younger and can help reflect a healthy lifestyle for active adults. Crooked teeth and a bad bite can contribute to gum and bone loss, tooth decay and abnormal wear of the tooth. Many adults choose to correct their teeth later in life for these reasons.
