adult orthodonticsThere is an increasing number of adults coming to us to get the perfect smile.  People are figuring out that age really doesn’t matter, and it’s never too late to get your teeth straightened.  We have a complete range of treatments that are made just for adults called adult orthordontics – which will give you the results of a huge difference in your smile and healthier bite.  You will find out how much more confidence you gain by knowing that your smile looks so good.

It’s not only about your smile, but it’s also about the health of your mouth by getting your teeth into the right place.  By getting problems fixed, you can avoid many potential issues like TMJ / TMD pain, uneven erosion of your tooth enamel, gum / bone problems, and even tooth decay.  Teeth that are crooked and/or crowded together are difficult to clean, and that alone can have a negative impact on the health of your teeth, and sometimes these types of problems can even affect your overall health.

You might be surprised to find out that there is a strong relationship between teeth that are misaligned to periodontal disease, the risk of stroke and even heart disease.  So it’s not all about your appearance.  A straight smile is great for self-esteem, but it can also be a preventative from these types of health problems as well.  Getting the right adult orthodontic treatment is really a wise investment not only for your dental health, but for your general physical health and emotional well-being as well.  This research comes directly from the American Association of Orthodontists.

You’ll be happy to know that treatment for adults is usually shorter in duration than for teens, due to the fact that adults are usually more compliant with instructions.  You can most definitely get faster results by wearing appliances exactly as instructed.
