Despite popular belief, orthodontic treatment is not just for children and teens. In fact, more and more adults are seeking orthodontic treatment to improve their smiles and correct any lingering oral health issues.

Why Seek Adult Orthodontics

Adult orthodontic treatment addresses various issues, including crowded or crooked teeth, bite problems and jaw misalignment. Many adults seek orthodontic treatment because they have alignment concerns and couldn’t receive treatment as a child or teen. In addition, adults who had orthodontic treatment as children may need further treatment due to relapse.

Benefits of Adult Orthodontics

There are many benefits to seeking orthodontic treatment as an adult:

  • Straightening your teeth can make them easier to clean and reduce your risk of tooth decay and gum disease.
  • A straighter, more attractive smile can boost your self-confidence and improve your overall quality of life.
  • Orthodontic treatment can help improve your bite, making it easier to chew and speak.
  • The treatment may be longer for adults, but the results are for life.

We provide various treatment options catering to various dental needs and concerns of our adult patients.
