Adult Orthodontics

It’s never too late to achieve your dream smile!

No matter what your age, if a healthier, more conservative, and more beautiful smile is important to you, orthodontics can help. In fact, 62% of Australian adults would consider orthodontic treatment. New research released by the Australian Society of Orthodontists reveals that over a third of Aussies (39%) don’t like their teeth and, as a result, over the last five years there’s been a significant increase in the number of adults who are looking to straighten their teeth.

Benefits of adult orthodontic treatment.

Mouths left untreated can get worse. Not undergoing orthodontic treatment when it is required may create long-term health issues that can cost you extra money in the future. In addition, having a confident, beautiful smile can be a real professional asset. Orthodontics often leads to enhanced self-esteem for adults and is an important part of overall oral health. Having straight teeth can also help patients reduce their risk of gum disease, cavities, and tooth loss as straight teeth are easier to keep clean with brushing and flossing.
