Adult Orthodontics

It is never too late to have a beautiful smile. A healthy bite is important at any age. Crowded or overlapping teeth can be difficult to clean leading to tooth decay and gum disease. If you have wanted to have a better smile and straighter teeth for a while, it is never too late, and healthy teeth can be moved at any age.

Many more adults are seeking orthodontic treatment. In fact, 1 in 5 patients in orthodontic treatment is an adult and they are coming away with excellent results. Much of what applies to orthodontics for children and teenagers also applies to adults.

Advances in orthodontics have lead to brackets that are smaller and bonded to the surface of the teeth. Gone are the days of using bands (braces that wrap around every tooth) on all teeth, relieving you of that “metal mouth” look. The brackets are more light-weight and cosmetically friendly. At Shrewsbury Orthodontics, we offer several treatment options depending on your individual case. Treatment time averages 12 to 20 months.

Orthodontic treatment is a smart investment in your dental care plan and can help you keep your teeth for a lifetime. Many people feel that a beautiful smile adds to their self-esteem and self-confidence.

You can finally get the perfect smile you have always dreamed of.
