Adult Orthodontics

More than 1.2 million adults wear braces in the U.S. and age is not a factor. There are other reasons for orthodontics beyond esthetics:

  • Poor chewing and digestion
  • Excessive wear resulting in cracked teeth, chronic headaches and TMJ disorders
  • Speech difficulties
  • Difficult homecare resulting in bad breath, tooth decay, gum disease and tooth loss
  • Self esteem, poor appearance, and social avoidance
