It’s Never Too Late for a Confident Smile
Did you know that 1 in 5 orthodontic patients is an adult? We can move healthy teeth at any age and thanks to a variety of new treatment options, orthodontics can fit conveniently into your lifestyle.
At Howard Orthodontics, you’re never too old to benefit from orthodontic treatment! Dr. Howard can work to create a better bite for you, help your teeth fit together better, and decrease the risk of future dental problems.
Reasons for Adult Orthodontics
Today, adults make up about one in every five orthodontic patients. Here's why:
Your Teeth Can Shift
Believe it or not, your teeth don’t stop moving in adolescence. Teeth that seemed straight and aligned in youth could have shifted later in life. This can lead to jaw pain, trouble brushing, or a smile you’re unhappy with.
Maintaining Dental Health
If you leave misaligned teeth untreated, you may end up with other dental problems such as tooth decay and gum disease. You may also notice difficulty chewing or abnormal wear on the surface of your teeth.
Orthodontic treatment with Dr. Howard can help correct crooked teeth or spaces that you’ve been self-conscious about for years. It can give you the confidence and pride that come with straight teeth and a great smile.
