Orthodontics for adults
Although orthodontic problems are best treated during childhood, it’s never too late to get braces! The main difference in treating adults as opposed to children and teens, is that in younger patients the jawbones are still developing. For adults, these bones have stopped growing, which may require different treatments. Many adults choose to receive orthodontic treatment because they understand the importance of maintaining their health, and they want to feel better about their appearance. Orthodontic correction in adults can help improve periodontal problems, prevent bone loss around teeth, improve oral health and aesthetic appearance, and increase self-esteem.
Mattingly & Howell Orthodontics is also a top provider of Invisalign treatment in the Louisville, KY metropolitan area – a discreet treatment option popular among our adult patients.
