Orthodontic treatment at later stages in life can dramatically improve your personal appearance and self-esteem, and improving the health of your teeth and gums is equally important. Crooked teeth and a bad bite can contribute to gum and bone loss, tooth decay, abnormal wear of the tooth enamel and surfaces, headaches and jaw joint (TMJ/TMD) pain.
Tooth alignment can be changed at any age if your gums and bone structure are healthy. At Meyer and Dana Orthodontics, we offer a variety of treatments that are designed for different age groups – including adults. A large percentage of our patients are adults, and they agree that it’s never too late to improve their greatest asset - their smile.
