Orthodontic Treatment is for All Ages!

Orthodontic treatment is not only for kids! You may have thought braces are for children, but times have changed! Adults all over the world are conscious about their appearance and smile, which has resulted in about one in every five orthodontic patients being over the age of 21. Recent studies have shown that straighter teeth lead to improved periodontal (gum) health, which in turn leads to overall improved body health. With the advances in treatment such as clear/metal brackets or Invisalign, it’s easier for adults to consider orthodontic treatment. Adults often do a better job for caring for their braces which can mean impressively faster results. If you are ready to improve your smile, all of us at Smileworks Orthodontics would love to help you. Call our office today at 703-383-0090!
