Tooth alignment can be changed at any age with metal braces, gold braces, and Invisalign if the gums and bone structure are healthy. The American Association of Orthodontics reports that one out of every five orthodontic patients is an adult! More adults every day are realizing it is never too late to achieve the smile of their dreams.

The Benefits of Adult Orthodontics

It is important to remember that orthodontic treatment not only will improve your smile aesthetically, but it will also improve the health of your teeth and gums overall. Seeking orthodontic treatment as an adult is particularly vital when trying to avoid the following problems later in life:

  • Severe tooth decay
  • Gum and bone loss
  • Irregular wear of the tooth enamel
  • TMJ/TMD pain
