A growing number of adults are choosing orthodontic treatment to improve their health, their smiles and the longevity of their teeth. In fact, one in three orthodontic patients is an adult. Studies continue to show the relationship between oral health and systemic health. Poor oral health contributes to systemic disease, such as heart disease.
Orthodontic treatment enhances oral health by facilitating good oral hygiene, health gums and consequently good system health. Not to mention an amazing smile contributes to awesome self-confidence!
Treatment is more advanced than ever before and the number of effective and cosmetically pleasing treatment options is growing all the time. For our adult patients who aren’t thrilled by the thought of metal braces are happy to offer ceramic “clear” brackets that disguise the appearance and help the brackets disappear in your smile.
