Orthodontics for adults
Braces are also for adults. Too often adults see braces as a treatment for children and adolescents and say they are too old to make such drastic changes to their teeth. Many are afraid to make the leap, and it is true that orthodontics can prove a challenge for adults, but solutions tailored to the needs of each person exist.
Orthodontics for adolescents
Adolescence is the ideal time to undertake most orthodontic corrections. The majority of orthodontic patients are in this age group, between 11 and 18 years of age. Treatments in early adolescence are often simpler, faster, and may require less permanent teeth extractions.
