Are your teeth crooked? Are you sick of it? If you are over 18 and need orthodontic treatment, you are not alone! Approximately 20% of orthodontics patients are adults, and the numbers are still rising. Alexander Orthodontics has a lot of options available to you. As you decide if orthodontic care is best for you, keep these things in mind:

Straight teeth can be important for dental health and proper development across the lifespan. Leaving your smile crooked can cause dental problems down the road. You might have already experienced this! If you have, don’t let it continue! Consult with Dr. Steven Alexander today.

In addition to traditional braces, there are other, less-conspicuous options to help you achieve your dream smile! These options are great for maintaining a professional appearance while simultaneously straightening your teeth.

Orthodontics treatments don’t only help your teeth get straightened out, they also help bad bites, called malocclusions. Some treatments can also help lower your risk for temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders in your jaw.

Braces treatments typically last for about a year to 18 months. Timing will depend mainly on the severity of the treatment needed, and will be discussed as you consult with our team at Alexander Orthodontics.

In addition to all of these benefits, never underestimate the power of a beautiful smile! A straight smile can boost self-confidence and can help in many aspects of your life.
