Orthodontic treatment is no longer just for teens!
According to the AAO, 1 in 5 orthodontic
patients are over the age of 21. No one is too old for orthodontic treatment, especially with the latest orthodontic technology, like Invisalign and the iTero Scanner! Customized treatment plans that cater to the needs of your lifestyle, time, and deliver amazing results.
Adult Orthodontics has steadily gained popularity over the past fifteen years. Dr. Gordon has treated patients in their seventies! Adult orthodontics is effective for the treatment of crowded, protruded, crooked teeth, rotated, or spaced teeth. It is also used to correct bite problems that could be contributing to periodontal (‘gum’) problems and/or jaw joint problems (where symptoms could manifest themselves as jaw pain or headaches). We offer Invisalign and clear (‘invisible’) braces for our adult patients as well as nightguards to help nighttime tooth grinding. In addition, accelerated orthodontics to significantly shorten treatment times is offered via Propel and Acceledent.
Adults many times seek orthodontic treatment for the same reasons as children. Some adults had orthodontic problems as children but were unable to correct them with proper treatment until now. Adults, too, can benefit from braces!
