Does the word braces create a picture in your mind of a teenager with a mouth overstuffed with metal? That may have been how it was in the bad old days, but braces are a very different thing today.
Which is good, particularly for any adults who feel that they’ve missed their opportunity to get the smile they’ve always wanted instead of the crooked teeth they have.

Adult orthodontic treatments are extremely effective in correcting crooked teeth, overbites, and all manner of other oral problems in more mature patients.
