Adult Odhodontics
The most common questions that we receive from adults are; is it too
late for me, or am I silly to want my teeth straightened? The answer
is absolutely no. The only additional considerations are periodontal,
estorative, or TMJ (jaw joint dysfunction or pain). Many adults have

hould just be satisfied with the way things are. In today's society, when
mething is as easy to correct with a time commitment and desire, it's
silly not to get additional information. A consultation to find information
pecific to your situation is recommended.


Approximately 10-20% of typical orthodontic practices are adults. Without
exception, every adult has said that it was well worth it in the end, it
wasn't the difficult hurdle that they expected, and even that it seemed
quicker than they anticipated. Of course, the hardest part is the initial
step and the first month of adjusting, but following that, they only wish
that they had considered orthodontics sooner.
