Orthodontic treatment can be successful at any age, and adults especially appreciate the benefits of a beautiful smile. One of every five patients in orthodontic treatment is over twenty-one. Jaw surgery is more often required for adult orthodontic patients because their jaws are not growing. Adults also may have experienced some breakdown or loss of their teeth, and bone that supports the teeth, and may require periodontal treatment before, during and/or after orthodontic treatment. Bone loss can also limit the amount and direction of tooth movement that is advisable.
It’s never too late to get the smile you’ve always wanted. In fact, more and more adults are opting for braces these days. That’s why we make it both easy and affordable for adults to get quality orthodontic treatment.
According to an American Association of Orthodontists survey, nearly a third of all orthodontic patients are adults, and over 90% of adults who have had braces say they would recommend it to others. Why? Because first impressions matter, and a beautiful smile can open many doors. 75% of adults reported improvements in career or personal relationships after completing orthodontic treatment.

It’s best for the orthodontist to see children by age seven to advise if orthodontic treatment is required and the best time for that patient to be treated. The first permanent molars and incisors have usually come in by that time and crossbites, crowding and other problems can be evaluated. When treatment is begun early we often have a “window of opportunity” not available when growth is not present. The orthodontist can guide the growth of the jaw and guide incoming permanent teeth. Early treatment can also coordinate the width of the upper and lower dental arches, gain space for permanent teeth, avoid the need for permanent tooth extractions, reduce likelihood of impacted permanent teeth, correct thumb-sucking, and eliminate abnormal swallowing or speech problems. In other words, early treatment can simplify later treatment.
