Adult Orthodontic Treatment

Orthodontic treatment is no longer just for teens. You are truly never too old for orthodontic treatment. Many treatment choices now exist for the adult orthodontic patient.

Many adults are now choosing to have treatment because they want to feel better about their appearance and improve the function of their mouth. Reasons for having treatment include

  • A bad bite, or malocclusion, causing teeth to fit together incorrectly
  • If the teeth are crowded or spaced apart
  • To have a healthier mouth and a more confident smile

Our practice recognizes that adults and children have different needs, and require a different level of attention and care. Ceramic brackets are available to improve the aesthetics of orthodontic treatment. We will work with you to ensure that you receive the most appropriate treatments, and that your needs are met with understanding, respect, and full commitment from us.

Adult patients with multiple missing teeth will often benefit from orthodontic treatment to prepare their mouth for replacement of these teeth by their dentist.
