Orthodontic treatment can be successful at any age, and adults especially appreciate the benefits of a beautiful smile. In fact, one of every five patients in orthodontic treatment is over 21. Orthodontics can improve the positions of the teeth for better periodontal health, as well as prepare for restorative needs. Misaligned teeth and an improper bite may contribute to gum and bone loss, as well as abnormal wear of the teeth.
For adults, the appearance of braces may be a concern. Drs. Chan & Chen offer several esthetic options to choose from. These include clear ceramic braces, Invisalign® clear aligners, as well as Incognito™ customized lingual braces that are placed on the back of the teeth.
