If you think orthodontic treatments like braces and aligners are just for children, think again. Our teeth can come out of alignment at any age, and leaving them that way can lead to tooth decay, gum disease and trouble chewing. We’re never too old to have a beautiful smile. That’s why one in four orthodontic patients nowadays is an adult.
At the offices of Carlton & Chastain Orthodontics, our orthodontists have advanced training in providing treatment to customize a better fit and bite for you, even if you have had crowns put in or have missing teeth. We specialize in state-of-the-art appliances that are less noticeable, more comfortable, and increase the likelihood that you will be able to keep your natural teeth for many years to come.
Although our teeth have stopped growing when we reach adulthood, they continue to shift in our mouths over time due to wear and tear. Still, the process of treating adults is virtually the same as children and can be accomplished almost as quickly and comfortably.
There is no one more qualified to provide the treatment to create the proper fit and fee for your teeth, and restore your smile, than an orthodontist, who has received thousands of hours of specialized training beyond the four years of dental school.
