What About Adult Orthodontic Care?

Its never too late for Orthodontic Care! Adult care is a great benefit for those who could benefit from better stability in their bite or who are contemplating major dental work, or who just want to look better.

The major difference between orthopedics and adult orthodontics is that usually most growth and development has slowed at about age twenty, and has stopped at around age thirty. So we can't use the body's growth to establish our dental and facial improvement. We have to actually move the teeth through mature bone, and this is slower, requires all the hardware (braces, wires etc.), and requires long term retainer use to control relapse, which is a constant force after adult orthodontic care. But, wearing a retainer is easy and is a small price to pay for your better health and smile!
