Adult orthodontics is the fastest growing segment of the industry, making it quite common for adults to get braces, Invisalign® or another type of aligner.
Adults have similar reasons to their younger counterparts as to why they may want their teeth aligned. From beautifying smiles or boosting self-esteem, to correcting issues or improving overall health, more adults than ever are visiting orthodontists.
Adults face tooth and jaw alignment issues that are similar to those of children or teens. However, adults may not realize they’re at risk for other problems related to these issues. Crowding or other types of misaligned teeth can make cleaning difficult. In addition, uneven wear of tooth enamel, tooth decay, and even gum/bone loss can also be avoided through corrective treatment with braces as an adult.
There are several different options for adult orthodontics, and though they all straighten your teeth, each one has its own characteristics.
We have treated adult patients who range in age from their 20s to their 70s. We provide care for adults in a special, private area of our office and work within your schedule to make appointments early, late or during the lunch hour.
