It is never too late to improve your smile! In fact, the American Association of Orthodontists states that one in five orthodontic patients is over the age of 21. Orthodontic treatment at later stages in life can dramatically improve your personal appearance, your bite, and the health of your teeth and gums.
Common reasons why adults are considering orthodontic treatment:
- A bad bite or malocclusion, causing teeth to fit together incorrectly
- Desire for a healthier mouth and a more confident smile
- Crowding returned after previous orthodontic treatment as a teen
- Teeth are crowded or spaced apart, possibly leading to tooth decay or gum disease
Treatment Options for Adults
- Ceramic braces
- Traditional metal braces
- Clear aligners
During the initial examination, we will be able to determine your treatment needs and goals. We will discuss the various treatment options and the limitations of treatment. We enjoy treating all of our adult patients because they are highly committed to the treatment.
