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, restorative, or TMJ
(jaw joint dysfunction or pain). Many adults have always been uncomfortable
with their smile and believe that they should just be satisfied with the way
things are. In today's society, when something is as easy to correct with a
time commitment and desire, it's silly not to get additional information. A
consultation to find information specific 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.

Adults have additional options such as clear braces that now are so cosmetic
that they can hardly be seen. Invisalign can be considered as adults are
non-growing but from personal experience, expectations cannot be as high
as with traditional braces and the orthodontist must be more selective in who

One difference for adult orthodontics is that no longer can growth be utilized
to an advantage. The bones are more "mature" and orthodontic mechanics
must be varied. Of course, skeletal discrepancies must be treated differently
and sometimes compromises must be considered with extractions. Although
many adults tell me they wouldn't mind feeling more pressure, it is still more
efficient and physiologically stable to utilize light consistent forces. In this
way, teeth are moving at maximum efficiency and comfortably.

If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact Drs.
Hersh, Beattie & Isenberg, at the their state-of-the-art orthodontic facilities
