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, orthodontic appliances have continued to become more and more discreet. Clear brackets, Invisalign®, and lingual braces are great for the adult patient who is hoping to drastically improve their smile.
Sometimes the most convenient time for adults to receive treatment or retreatment is while their child is already undergoing their own orthodontic journey. Please mention this to Ortega Orthodontics if you are interested.
Adults can experience several problems, including overcrowded 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, and nighttime aligners, depending on whether your teeth require dramatic repositioning or a minor tweak.
