Braces For Teenagers

Does your teen avoid smiling because they have crowded or crooked teeth? The way someone's teeth look can have a profound effect on their self-esteem and social skills! Most orthodontic patients begin orthodontic treatment between the ages of 9 and 16. Typically, adolescent years are the optimal time to correct orthodontic problems as they have not yet finished growing and discrepancies in jaw alignment can be corrected more easily.

Braces For Adults

While the thought of braces often conjures images of adolescents with metal brackets and wires in their mouths, the fact is that 25% of patients who seek some type of orthodontic treatment are over the age of 21. Generally, adults are highly motivated to improve their smiles and the overall health of their teeth and gums. Orthodontics has come a very long way since the days of tightening wires, and there are many different treatment options available today to minimize the appearance of braces.
