Is orthodontic treatment effective for adults?
Yes! Healthy teeth can be moved at any age. Many orthodontic problems can be corrected as easily for adults as for children. Orthodontic forces move teeth in the same way for both adults and children.
Many options are available today to minimise the appearance of braces. Today's appliances are smaller and sleeker, and some are next-to-invisible. We can advise you as to what options are recommended for your particular needs.
You can do almost anything during orthodontic treatment - sing, play a musical instrument, dine out, kiss and even have your picture taken. Some adjustments will be necessary, but if you're like the vast majority of adult patients, you'll adjust quickly. New techniques and materials today have made wearing braces more comfortable than ever.
