What are the benefits of adult orthodontic treatment?

Did you know that 25% of orthodontic patients today are adults? Orthodontic treatment can close gaps in teeth and correct crooked, crowded or protruding teeth. It greatly enhances the appearance of your smile and can also address the oral health problems that result from a poor bite and crowded teeth. Standard braces are the most recognized orthodontic treatment method. Braces are traditionally made of metal, but can also be made from clear or tooth-colored materials. Invisalign offers an alternative to braces. It straightens teeth more comfortably and in a shorter time than braces using clear, removable aligners that are custom-fitted to your teeth. Invisalign treatment is usually completed in less than one year. Orthodontic treatment is not just for teens. At any stage of life, you can correct the alignment of your teeth and attain the smile you have always wanted. Talk to us to learn more.
