Adolescence is the most common age to receive orthodontic treatment, but at Current Orthodontics, we see plenty of adult patients as well, even senior citizens. No birthday ever shuts the door on the possibility of orthodontic treatment. If you’re an adult who has been yearning for a straight smile, feel free to come in for a no-cost consultation.
Adult orthodontic treatment is becoming increasingly common. Nationally, it’s estimated that some 25% of all orthodontic patients are adults.
There are good reasons why now is a great time for adults to begin orthodontic treatment:
Everyday we see how straight teeth bring an improved appearance and more confidence to our patients. These assets bring advantages to their work and personal lives. In addition, a healthy bite means less chance of gum disease, tooth decay, and other health problems.
When some new adult patients come in for their free consultation, they ask if we can do partial treatments. For example, they maybe just want their top teeth corrected, or only their bottom teeth. We are glad to accommodate our patients’ wishes.
We love our adult patients. They clean their teeth diligently, follow our directions well, and take care of their orthodontic appliances.
