Did you know that one in five orthodontic patients is over the age of 21? It’s true! Adults everywhere are taking advantage of the opportunity to receive orthodontic care, and preserve their teeth for years to come. When it comes to having a straighter, healthier smile, braces aren’t just for teenagers anymore! It’s never too late to improve your oral health with orthodontic treatment.
Many adults are making the decision to receive orthodontic treatment because many never had orthodontics as a young child or teenager. As the years have passed, many of our adult patients have begun to realize the importance of having straight teeth and a healthy mouth; and, they turn to orthodontics as a way to achieve the beautiful smile they deserve.
There are not many differences between adult and child orthodontics; however, with adults, the jaw bones have hardened and stopped developing, and in children these bones are still soft, and developing. This can sometimes lead to the possibility of orthodontic surgery as part of an adult orthodontic treatment.
