Orthodontics is not just for kids! Healthy teeth can be moved at any age, and it is never too late to improve your smile. Because of this reason, appliances have continued to become more and more discrete.
Clear brackets, Invisalign®, and lingual braces are great for the adult patient seeking a little tweak of their smile.
Sometimes the most convenient time for adults to receive treatment or retreatment is while their child is in treatment. Please mention this to Ortega Orthodontics if you are interested.
Adults can experience several problems including crowding teeth, which may require orthodontic treatment in order to keep them clean and healthy. Treatment options range from traditional metal braces, lingual braces, translucent aligners, to nighttime aligners depending on whether your teeth require dramatic repositioning or a minor tweak.
