Adult Orthodontics

Detection of Oral Cancer

Adult Treatment

Orthodontics is not just for kids and teens anymore. In fact, 1 in every 5 patients in our practice are adults. No one is too old for orthodontic treatment. We find our adult patients especially appreciate the benefits of a beautiful smile on one’s well-being and self-confidence. Improving the health of your teeth and gums is equally important since crooked teeth and a bad bite can contribute to gum and bone loss, tooth decay, abnormal wear of the tooth enamel surfaces, headaches and jaw joint pain (TMJ/TMD).

Adolescent Treatment

Benefits of Adult Treatment

These include:

  • Align the teeth to create a more aesthetic and beautiful smile
  • Improve the ability to brush and floss, especially for crowded or overlapping lower front teeth
  • Create a better or more comfortable bite and ability to chew
  • Reduce excessive wear on the teeth due to grinding or poor bite
  • Address missing teeth
  • Close spaces between the teeth
  • Jaw surgery to correct discrepancy between the upper and lower jaws.
  • Correct relapse after previous orthodontic treatment due to lack of long term retainer wear
