Braces aren’t just for kids anymore. If your gums and bone structure are healthy, then orthodontic treatment can be successful. There are not many differences between adult and child orthodontics; however, in children and teens the jawbones are still growing. For adults, these bones have stopped developing and orthodontic surgery may be required to align the jaws in conjunction with braces.
In fact, adult orthodontics continues to be the fastest growing segment of treatment. We have numerous parents that have their treatment coincide with their kid’s treatment – making orthodontics a family affair.
If you are ready to improve your personal appearance, self-esteem, and the overall health of your teeth and gums, then now is the time for you to start orthodontic treatment. Both misaligned teeth and an improper bite can contribute to gum and bone loss, tooth decay, and excessive wear on the teeth.
Good news! Dr. VanderWall utilizes the latest techniques and appliances to reduce discomfort and decrease the frequency of visits during orthodontic treatment. We offer different options for your orthodontic treatment including metal braces, clear braces and Invisalign.
Dr. VanderWall will discuss the treatment plan that best fits your individual needs during an initial visit.
