Orthodontics for Adults

Approximately 20% of today’s orthodontic patients are adults. Advances in the types of appliances used for adult braces makes the treatment of adults easier and more accepted than ever before.  It is never too late to achieve the kind of smile you have always wanted. As we age, our teeth tend to become more crowded and misaligned due to muscle forces or due to an improper bite. Teeth of adult patients move as well as teeth of younger patients. Adult orthodontics can play an important role in placing the teeth in proper position before crowns or dental implants are done to improve the longevity of these restorations done by your dentist. Whatever your reason-you are never too old for a better smile!
