Commonly Heard Myths...

and the STRAIGHT facts about orthodontic treatment.

There is no age deadline for adults with a healthy mouth to undergo Orthodontic treatment. Orthodontics can give the perfect smile you have always wanted, without putting your professional or personal life on hold. Many new options allow you to look great throughout the duration of the treatment. In fact, one out of every five orthodontic patients is an adult.
For many adults, orthodontic treatments can be completed in as little as six months. Depending upon the method used and the amount of alignment required, treatment can be quite short in length.
Adult teeth shift forward with time, so crowding gets worse after age nine. Even though the jaws are still growing, small baby teeth are traded for larger adult teeth that shift forward with age.
The day your child gets their braces you can expect to experience some slight discomfort but nothing that a little an ice-cream cone or (Advil) can’t cure. The initial discomfort is from the gentle force of the brackets and wires, after the first couple days your teeth adjust and any mild aches subside.
