The goal of orthodontic treatment is to create a beautiful smile and a good bite, meaning straight teeth that look great and mesh well with the teeth in the opposite jaw. A good bite makes it easier for you to bite, chew and speak. Many people find a beautiful smile adds to self-esteem, self-confidence and contributes toward career advancement. We live in a competitive world and a great smile can give you an advantage.
Orthodontic treatment is often part of a comprehensive dental health care plan. With good care, including orthodontic treatment when necessary, teeth can last a lifetime.
Even though adults are no longer growing, they can enjoy improvements that come from orthodontic treatment. A healthy bite and good looking smile is as important at age 60 as it is at age 16. Your age is not a consideration for orthodontic treatment, because healthy teeth can be moved at any age.
Orthodontic treatment is a smart investment in your family and your smile, as well as in your dental, physical and emotional well-being.
