According to the American Association of Orthodontics, up to 65% of adults can benefit from orthodontic treatment. 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. Your new smile can begin today.
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. Crowded 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.
The new techniques and appliances we use are esthetic, greatly reduce discomfort levels, decrease the frequency of visits and are highly efficient. Some adults choose to have treatment with traditional appliances, however, a large percentage choose esthetic appliances such as Invisalign.
During the initial examination, we will be able to determine the best possible treatment for your individual needs. We will also outline your treatment plan, estimated duration of treatment and the cost. We work very closely with specialists if needed to ensure an optimal result.
Orthodontics has come a long way. Braces used to consist of a steel band went around each individual tooth like a ring. The wire that pulled the teeth into line was attached to a little bracket that was on the front of the steel bands. You might remember what this looked like – a mouth full of metal!
A large percentage of our patients are adults, and they agree that it’s never too late to improve their greatest asset – their smile.
