Orthodontic treatment can be successful to improving your overall health and the aesthetics of your smile at any age.
When considering orthodontic treatment as an adult, the idea of having braces makes some people shy away from taking care of dental health and aesthetic issues. The fact is that one of every five patients in orthodontic treatment is over age 21, and the numbers of adult patients is growing exponentially.
With more and more adults turning to orthodontic care to improve their smiles, orthodontic professionals are recognizing more and more that the aesthetic benefits to orthodontics are not limited to the smile. Some orthodontic treatments are even being touted as having the effect of mini-facelifts.
