Orthodontics for adults in Richland, Washington.
If you thought braces were only for kids, you may want to think again. Orthodontic treatment can be appropriate for people in almost any stage of life. In fact, more than 20% of people with braces are over the age of 21. There are more options to suit adult lifestyles than ever before, as well as treatments, like Invisalign (link to types of braces page), with which interference in daily life and cosmetic appeal is quite limited. Depending on your needs, treatment times may also be reduced by utilizing these new techniques.
Some adults we treat never had braces when they were younger and some simply may not have take the best care of their braces or worn their retainers. Regardless, getting orthodontic treatment as an adult can dramatically improve your personal appearance and self-esteem. Improving the health of your teeth and gums is equally important. Crooked teeth and a bad bite can contribute to gum and bone losses, tooth decay, abnormal wear of the tooth enamel and surfaces, headaches and jaw joint pain.
