Everyone Deserves a Great Smile
You’re never too old to benefit from orthodontic treatment.
Today, adults make up about one in every five orthodontic patients. Here’s why:
Adults find orthodontic treatment appealing because it can provide the confidence and pride that comes from straight teeth and a great smile. Orthodontic treatment can help correct crooked teeth or spaces that you’ve been self-conscious about for years, so you’ll feel better than ever.
Your Teeth Can Shift
Did you know that your teeth keep moving beyond 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
Orthodontic treatments are not just for your smile, even though they can really improve your appearance and self-esteem. Fixing your teeth can also dramatically change your oral health. You may have some oral health problems such as disease and tartar buildup when you have crooked teeth or malocclusion.
It can be really hard to brush between your teeth when they don’t line up correctly, which will lead to more cavities and decay. Many people who suffer from malocclusions have jaw pain along with headaches.
