Did you know that one in four orthodontic patients are adults? It’s true, and our office is here to help!

Leaving misaligned teeth untreated can lead to future dental problems such as excessive wear, tooth decay, gum disease, and difficulty chewing.

With adult orthodontic treatment, you can improve your bite and decrease the potential risk of developing these problems in the future.

Too Old to Get Braces?

Braces are effective at any age!

You never need to fear using braces … Click to open this link in the same window … at any age, and they will help you have the smile you deserve! The biggest difference in orthodontics for adults vs. children or teens is that adults are no longer growing and developing, which just means that adult treatment may take slightly longer than treatment for children/teens with a similar problem due to the maturity and density of the bone adults have.

Additionally, some medications and habits, like smoking, clenching or grinding teeth, or tongue thrusting, can affect the outcome of treatment, meaning there are extra things to consider. Nonetheless, braces do work wonders for adults, and we can help work with you to ensure that you can smile with confidence!

Dr. Chung will work with your family dentist to coordinate care and ensure the best results. Occasionally, your dentist and Dr. Chung may need to call in other dental specialists, such as oral surgeons, periodontists, and endodontists. Although we’re an orthodontic practice, we genuinely care about your overall health, and we thrive when working with your healthcare team.

Meet Roel Ortiz.

“I was facing 20 years of people with crooked teeth, which in my line of work is not too favorable… It was a seamless process to get my appointment setup. The steps to get me taken care of have been pretty seamless. It has been a great experience.”
