Did you know that approximately one in five orthodontic patients is an adult?* Adults who pursue orthodontic treatment improve more than the alignment of teeth and jaws: a more beautiful smile can boost self-esteem and confidence – at work and away from the office! Braces are more comfortable and less visible than ever, thanks to new materials and technology.

Whatever your age, orthodontic treatment can give you a healthier mouth, a more pleasing appearance and teeth that are more likely to last a lifetime.
