Having straight teeth is important not only for children, but for adults as well. As we grow older, our teeth tend to move inward, creating crowding – a common problem for many teens and adults. As a result, it may be difficult to keep teeth clean and healthy.
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 age 21. The oldest patient that Dr. Held has treated was 61 years young. Health, happiness, and self-esteem are vitally important at any age. It's never too late!
It is an exciting time, as new technologies have opened up a whole new world for adults who thought that they were no longer candidates for orthodontic treatment. The Invisalign® technology, for example, has made it convenient for adults to undergo orthodontic treatment that is nearly invisible and can fit very well into any active and/or public lifestyle. And, the Physiodynamic® Clear Braces look fantastic while giving you a functional and beautiful smile.
Orthodontic treatment can definitely make a difference for adults of all ages!
