Orthodontic treatment can be successful at any age and adults especially appreciate the benefits of a beautiful smile. One of every five patients in orthodontic treatment is over the age of twenty-one. We always enjoy working with adult patients and like the many options that we have to use in creating great smiles for them. Many of our adult patients have traditional metal braces, some have tooth-colored ceramic braces and many are enjoying the esthetic benefits that Invisalign offers. We have also started to use a new system of treatment that enables us to place braces on the insides of the teeth. These braces are called Incognito Braces and you can learn more about them by visiting our Incognito Braces page. Many adults think they are too old for orthodontic treatment. "I'm already married!" is a humorous comment that we often hear. There are many more benefits to straight teeth than just esthetics. Straight teeth are easier to clean and care for. A good bite can prevent potential wear and tear on the enamel of the teeth and help the jaw muscles function better together. Give us a call if you think you'd enjoy these benefits and treatment options. We're always happy to answer any of your adult orthodontic questions!
