Today, one orthodontic patient in five is an adult. You’re never too old to benefit from orthodontic treatment. No matter what your age, proper alignment of teeth contributes to your good health and a beautiful smile. – American Association of Orthodontics
Your smile can get better at any age, if your gums and bone structure are healthy. And we offer a variety of options designed for different age groups. Treatment later in life can dramatically improve your appearance and confidence.
Improving the health of your teeth and gums is important. Crooked teeth and a bad bite can contribute to gum and bone loss, tooth decay, abnormal wear, headaches, jaw pain, and even heart disease. If an adult is self-conscious about his or her smile, orthodontic treatment can provide them with the same benefits younger patients enjoy. Less visible orthodontic hardware (clear aligners, ceramic braces) can make adult orthodontic treatment increasingly popular in recent years.
We offer solutions to greatly reduce discomfort levels, decrease the frequency of your visits and shorten treatment times. These options include metal braces and transparent aligners that can improve minor problems.
During your initial examination, we determine the best course of action for you, outlining your timeline and estimating the financial cost.
We have adults of all ages in our practice, so its never too late to improve your greatest asset – your smile.
Will orthodontic treatment fit my lifestyle?
Certainly. You can do almost anything during orthodontic treatment — sing, play a musical instrument, dine out, kiss, and even have your picture taken. Some temporary adjustments will be necessary, but if you’re like the vast majority of adult patients, you’ll adapt quickly.
