For Adults

Do Adults Get Orthodontic Treatment?

Lots of adults are in orthodontic treatment with our practice.  In fact, about 40% of our orthodontic patients are adults!  There is no longer a stimga for adult orthodontic care.  Our adult patients understand the importance of maintaining their health and they want to feel better about their appearance.  

Reasons for Orthodontic Treatment in Adults:

  • Desire for a healthier and more confident smile
  • Crowded teeth
  • Spacing between teeth
  • TMD or TMJ jaw pain
  • Skeletal Malocclusion / Jaw Discrepancy
  • Facilitate your restorative work (implants, veneers, etc.)
