Orthodontic treatment – adult orthodontics
Many adults used to put off orthodontic treatment in the past as cosmetic options were limited and treatment time periods long. Busy professionals are increasingly opting to correct imperfections like widely spaced, misaligned and crooked teeth as appearances and confidence matter more than ever.
Boosting your confidence
Orthodontic treatment can offer patients benefits such as when your smile doesn’t look the way you would like it to, it will stop you from smiling all together and lower your confidence and self esteem.
Today, 1 in 5 patients undergoing orthodontic treatment is an adult so it’s no wonder as the stigma around braces continues to change.
