Half of our patients are over 18. Orthodontic treatment can be successful at any age and adults especially appreciate the benefits of a beautiful smile. Adults can have problems with their teeth, such as missing teeth or previously treated gum problems, but braces can still make a great change on these patients.

Treatment for adults can have many different goals:

  • Ideal results
  • Significantly improved results for limited treatment aimed at correcting certain problems

All adult patients must have a recent cleaning and examination, and their dentist must feel that they are a good candidate for braces.
