Orthodontic Treatment for Adults
Despite what many people think, orthodontic treatment is not only for children.
Orthodontists are specially-trained dentists who bring the teeth, jaw bones and facial profile into proper alignment.
They can therefore give you a better smile and improve your dental health.
It’s never too late to correct problems such as crooked or crowded teeth, bite problems, incorrect jaw position, or jaw-joint disorders.
The biological process involved in moving teeth is the same at any age.
However treatment for adults can take a little longer than for a child.
As an adult's facial bones are no longer growing, certain corrections may not be accomplished with braces alone and sometimes surgery is required.
However, whatever your age, it's never too late to improve your dental health and make your smile more beautiful.
