Adult Orthodontic Treatment For A Beautiful Smile

Adult woman with confident smileAn increasing number of adults are becoming aware of the benefits of orthodontic treatment.  Not only will you benefit from a beautiful smile, but your overall health and your dental health will benefit too.  Crooked, misaligned teeth can lead to periodontal disease, which has been linked to heart disease and strokes. 

With orthodontic treatment, you can be happy with your smile and have a healthy mouth, no matter your age.

If the stigma of braces is discouraging you, there are alternatives, including Clear Aligner Therapy.

In some cases, orthodontic correction may be achieved in as little as 4 to 5 months.

Do You Need Orthodontic Treatment?

  • Teeth that are crowded and rotated.
  • Teeth have spaces between them.
  • Protruding upper or lower teeth.
  • Misalignment of jaw joints where they hinge.

Up to 25% of Dr. Gail’s patients are adults, ranging in age from their 20’s to their 60’s. The orthodontic process is the same for adults as for children.

However, treatment can be complicated by the fact that adult bone is denser, which can make it more difficult to reposition adult teeth. Also, on occasion, the adult has lost some teeth prior to orthodontic treatment. This, too, can make orthodontic treatment more complex. But after a thorough evaluation and appropriate orthodontic treatment, adults can achieve dramatic improvements in their smile, their appearance, and their dental health.

Clear Aligner Therapy
