Your smile plays a large role in how others perceive you. Straight teeth and a smile you are proud of helps you to feel your best and promotes self-confidence. If you did not get braces to straighten your teeth in your early childhood or teenage years, it is not too late. Age is never a contraindication to orthodontic treatment.
Adult orthodontic treatment is one of the fastest growing segments of orthodontics. There are very few clinical reasons why someone might want to postpone orthodontic treatment. Active periodontal disease is the primary reason and this can be resolved to allow someone to receive the treatment they desire. At Budd Orthodontics, we have several patients in their 50's, 60's and 70's receiving orthodontic treatment. They are thrilled to finally have a smile they enjoy looking at in the mirror.
Options for adult treatment include Invisalign, clear braces, or even traditional braces. Budd Orthodontics offers free consultations to determine the need for treatment, what treatment options would be best for your specific case, and determine what your out-of-pocket cost for treatment would be. Please give us a call. We look forward to meeting you!
