Can adults benefit from orthodontic treatment?
Adult Orthodontics – Braces aren’t just for kids anymore. In fact according to the American Association of Orthodontics 1 in 5 patients in orthodontic treatment is an adult. At some point in time it has to be Mom or Dad’s turn to get the smile they provided their kids! Tooth alignment can be changed at any age if your gums and bone structure are healthy. We offer a variety of treatments that are designed for different age groups – including adults.
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. Crooked teeth and a bad bite can contribute to gum and bone loss, tooth decay, abnormal wear of the tooth enamel and surfaces, headaches and jaw joint (TMJ/TMD) pain.
