Age Is Not a Factor
Orthodontic treatment is not just for children and teens. Healthy teeth can be moved at any age. In fact, more than half of our patients at Smiles Orthodontics are over the age of 18. Our office has treated individuals in their 50’s and even their 60’s. It is never too late to gain the smile you have always wanted.
Recent technologies in treatment make it possible for adults to perfect their smiles with less discomfort, and shorter treatment times. Braces (clear/metal) and invisible braces (Invisalign/Incognito) are more comfortable and esthetic than in the past.
Adults are seeking treatment to make it easier to bite, chew, speak and improve their overall health and self-esteem. Getting braces as an adult can not only dramatically improve your smile, it can also reduce premature wear and tear on your teeth, discomfort due to misaligned jaw position and reduce your chances for gum disease by making cleaning easier.
