Orthodontics for Adults
Orthodontic treatment is no longer just for teens and adolescents. The American Association of Orthodontists states that one in five orthodontic patients is over the age of 21. Many adults are choosing orthodontic treatment because they want to feel better about their appearance while understanding the importance of maintaining proper oral health.
