Adult Orthodontics

Orthodontic treatment is for everyone!

Orthodontic treatment is no longer just for teens. In fact, the American Association of Orthodontists states that one in five orthodontic patients is over the age of 21. Many adults are choosing to receive treatment because they understand the importance of maintaining their health, and they want to feel better about their appearance. Adults everywhere are taking advantage of the opportunity to receive orthodontic care, and now you can too.

Health effects that can be corrected with orthodontic treatment:

  • Misalignment of the bite which can cause jaw pain and abnormal tooth wear
  • Teeth are crowded or spaced apart which can result in tooth decay and gum disease
  • Missing teeth resulting in bone loss and shifting of neighboring teeth

Treatment options for adults

For many adults, the thought of having metal braces is enough to discourage them from receiving treatment. However today’s orthodontic treatment options offer a variety of lifestyle and aesthetic choices to meet your needs. Grand Dental Orthodontics offers:

Why should you consider orthodontic treatment?

  • Straight teeth are healthy teeth — Teeth that are properly aligned are easier to keep clean with flossing and brushing, and may help prevent other health problems.
  • A beautiful, straight smile builds confidence — Orthodontic treatment can help boost your self-confidence, giving you a better quality of life and the freedom to smile without holding back!
  • Mouths left untreated can get worse — Not receiving orthodontic treatment when it’s needed can create long-term health issues costing you more in the end.
  • Incomplete orthodontic treatment as a teen — Many adults received some orthodontic treatment as a child or teen, but never completed their treatment. As an adult, they choose to complete their orthodontic treatment to achieve the healthy, beautiful smile they always wanted.
