Will Braces Affect My Social Life?

During Treatment Will My Teeth Go Too Far Back? (Mash Mouth)
A thorough analysis of each patient’s records is performed to decide on a suitable treatment plan. The condition and position of the teeth, their impact upon the lips and cheeks is carefully considered and is also closely watched during the course of treatment in order to ensure the best functional and aesthetic result.
Am I Too Old?
People of all ages may be treated with orthodontics. Adults up to age seventy-five have been successfully treated at our office. The only obstacle to treatment is the health of the teeth and gums, which can be enhanced with orthodontic treatment.
