Orthodontic treatment is a change for the better, regardless of your age. The biological process involved in tooth movement is the same in both adults and children. In many cases we can achieve very dramatic facial changes with adult orthodontics. Braces will NOT interfere with your lifestyle. You can do anything with braces – sing, play musical instruments, dine out, kiss and have your picture taken.
There are a few inconveniences, but you will adjust quickly. Certain treats, such as caramels and peanut brittle, will be off limits. Also, your mouth and teeth may be a little tender after adjustments. The good news is that the new techniques and materials used by our doctors greatly reduce the discomfort of wearing braces and also decrease the frequency of office visits and overall treatment time.
