Adult orthodontic treatment can be successful at any age to provide the benefits of a beautiful smile. One of every five patients in orthodontic treatment is over 21.
Over the last few years, more and more adults have become aware of the benefits of orthodontic treatment.
Adults represent a great percentage of patients at Vaughan Orthodontics as we use new techniques and technologies that are great at making it less noticeable. Dr. Chen and his team is constantly focused on providing our adult patients with a relaxed and comfortable setting while delivering excellent and efficient service. Our goal is to give you the smile that you have always dreamed of and deserve. We believe that it is never too late to achieve that smile which is why we are excited to offer orthodontic treatment to adults.
BENEFITS OF ADULT TREATMENT
The great news for adults seeking orthodontic treatment is that tooth alignment can be changed at any age if your gums and bone structure are healthy. We offer a variety of treatments designed for different age groups – including adults.
Although orthodontic treatment at later stages in life can dramatically improve your personal appearance and self-esteem, improving the health of your teeth and gums is equally important. Crooked teeth and a bad bite can contribute to the following:
- Gum and bone loss
- Tooth decay
- Abnormal wear of the tooth enamel and surfaces
- In some cases, headaches and jaw joint pain
