adult treatment

There are more and more adult orthodontic patients these days, and it's not hard to figure out why.  Appliances that are barely noticeable have been developed to give adults more discreet choices when it comes to orthodontic treatment.  Moreover, many adults realize that investing in a smile makeover can have significant benefits, socially and professionally.  Orthodontics can be an essential part of that confidence-boosting makeover process.  There is no such thing as being 'too old' for braces.  Adults everywhere are taking advantage of the opportunity to receive orthodontic care, and now you can too.


Common Reasons Why Adults Consider Orthodontic Treatment:

  • A bad bite or malocclusion, causing t teeth to fit together incorrectly

  • Teeth are crowded or spaced apart, possibly contributing to tooth decay or gum disease

  • Abnormal jaw pain, or pressure that is caused by crooked teeth

  • A desire for a healthier mouth and a more confident smile


Treatment Options For Adults

For many adults, the thought of having metal braces is enough to discourage them from receiving treatment.  However, today's orthodontic treatment options offer a variety of braces and appliances that are comfortable, aesthetic, and customized to meet your needs.  Types of braces include:

  • Clear Braces

  • Lingual (behind the tooth) braces 

  • Clear aligner systems, like Invisalign

  • Traditional metal braces 

Why Should You Consider Orthodontic Treatment as an Adult?

  • Straight teeth are healthy teeth - Teeth that are properly aligned are easier to keep clean with flossing and brushing and may help prevent other health problems.

  • A beautiful, straight smile builds confidence - Orthodontic treatment can help boost your self-confidence, giving you a better quality of life and the freedom to smile without holding back! 

  • Smiles left untreated can get worse -Not receiving orthodontic treatment when it is needed can create long-term health issues costing you more in the end.
