Adults Deserve a Beautiful Smile, Too

You’re never too old to benefit from orthodontic treatment.

More Popular than Ever

Today, adults make up about one in every five orthodontic patients. Here’s why:

Looking Good: Orthodontic treatment can help correct crooked teeth or spaces that you’ve been self-conscious about for years. It can give you the confidence and pride that come with straight teeth and a great smile.

Teeth Can Shift: Believe it or not, your teeth don’t stop moving in adolescence. Teeth that seemed straight and aligned in youth could have shifted later in life. This can lead to jaw pain, trouble brushing, or a smile you’re unhappy with.

Maintaining Dental Health: If you leave misaligned teeth untreated, you may end up with other dental problems such as tooth decay and gum disease. You may also notice difficulty chewing or abnormal wear of the surface of your teeth.
