Braces for the longest time were only considered for children and teens. That has changed, and more adults than ever have decided to join the movement to enhance their smile and protect their teeth.

When the upper and lower teeth are aligned properly, the tremendous forces of chewing and grinding are more easily absorbed by the teeth, jaw bones and jaw joint thus providing a person with a bite that will add to the long term health and attractiveness of their teeth and smile.

Most often the reason for orthodontics will be one or more of the following:

  • Poor jaw alignment
  • Premature loss of teeth (baby teeth are space savers for the permanent teeth).
  • Large teeth in a small jaw.
