Do you worry that you are too old to straighten your teeth? You are never too old for orthodontics! In fact, about 25% of orthodontic patients are now adults. At our practice, we want you to know that a straight, healthy, beautiful smile is within your reach – no matter your age. Dr. Shannon offers a number of orthodontic treatments and is happy to help you find the one that matches your personal needs and desires. In addition to traditional metal braces, more discreet options are often available so you can maintain a natural, professional appearance while you straighten your teeth. During your initial visit with Dr. Shannon, we will review all of your treatment options and help you choose the one you need for optimal results.
Most patients understand that a straighter smile is more aesthetic; however, not everyone knows that properly aligned teeth can help to improve your oral health and function as well. Orthodontic treatment can help you avoid severe tooth decay, gum and bone loss, TMJ/TMD (jaw joint) pain, and irregular wear of the tooth enamel. To learn more about the benefits of adult orthodontic treatment, we welcome you to call or visit us today. We look forward to helping you achieve a straighter, healthier smile!
