Adult Orthodontic Treatment

Orthodontist Huntersville

Braces aren’t just for kids anymore. More adults are opting for orthodontic treatment than ever before. According to the American Association of Orthodontists, one in five orthodontic patients is over the age of 18. At Selden Orthodontics, 25% of our patients are adults.

Adult patients who are interested in orthodontic treatment usually fall within two categories: those who did not undergo orthodontic treatment before or those who have worn braces at one point but stopped wearing retainers and their teeth have shifted. Whatever the reason, Selden Orthodontics can help you.

The main benefit of orthodontic treatment is a straighter smile. An attractive smile improves self-esteem and overall confidence. However, orthodontic treatment can also solve other problems, including crooked, overlapping or overcrowded teeth, or an uneven bite.

We offer a variety of different methods to straighten your teeth. With modern technology, you may not need to wear the traditional, metal braces with wires and brackets.

If you think you are too old for braces, think again. We can help you create a beautiful, healthy and straight smile at any age. For more information, contact our office.
