Adult Orthodontics

Adult Smile

Beautiful, healthy smiles are possible for almost anyone! Orthodontic treatment can be successful at any age, and adults especially appreciate the benefits of a beautiful smile. In fact, statistics have shown that one of every five patients in orthodontic treatment is over 21!

For adults, the condition of their teeth, gums, and supporting bone is the most important element in deciding whether or not to begin treatment. As the science of orthodontics has developed less rigid wires and more esthetic alternatives to the traditional metal braces, many adults are now taking advantage of orthodontic options to improve their own smile. Whether you are considering orthodontic care to enhance your appearance, or to correct a poor bite that has contributed to dental problems, Dr. Golden would enjoy the opportunity to talk with you about the benefits of adult orthodontics.
