Can adults have orthodontic treatment?

0

A. Orthodontic treatment can be successful at any age, and adults especially appreciate the benefits of a beautiful smile. One of every four patients in orthodontic treatment is over 21. Bad bites can be detrimental to a patient’s health. Restorations, crowns, or bridges are often difficult for a dentist to provide without prior repositioning of the teeth by an orthodontist. Properly aligned and supported teeth are healthier, easier to clean, and therefore more likely to last throughout a patient’s lifetime. Dramatic changes in a person’s smile and profile can be achieved. A person can actually look years younger by straightening crooked teeth or correcting an excessive overbite or an under bite. A beautiful smile can increase self-confidence and in turn, a sense of well being.
