It's Never Too Late!
Orthodontic treatment is not just for kids. According to the American Association of Orthodontists, one in five orthodontic patients is over the age of 21. Many adults choose to receive treatment because they understand the importance of maintaining a healthy confident smile.
Why many adults consider orthodontic treatment:
- Malocclusion or improper bite
- Teeth crowding or spacing
- Desire for a more confident smile
- Jaw pain or pressure
Treatment options for adults
For many adults, the thought of having metal braces is discouraging and can prevent them from receiving treatment. However, there are a variety of orthodontic treatment options of braces and appliances that are comfortable, aesthetic, and customized to meet your lifestyle. Types of braces include:
- Ceramic braces
- Self-ligating braces
- Invisalign clear aligners
- Metal braces
We recognize that adults and children have different needs, and require a different level of attention and care. We will work with you to ensure that you receive the most appropriate treatment and that your needs are met with understanding and respect from us.
Reasons to consider orthodontic treatment:
Straight teeth are healthy because aligned teeth are easier to keep clean with flossing and brushing and may help prevent future health problems.
Smiles build confidence — The number one reason patients seek orthodontic treatment is to build confidence. We love helping patients boost their self-confidence and seeing them gain a better quality of life and the freedom to smile proudly.
Mouths left untreated can get worse — delaying orthodontic treatment when it is needed can create long-term health issues costing you more in the end.
