What are the benefits of adult orthodontics?

Adult braces can impact your confidence and health. Straighter teeth can create a broader smile and prevent health issues like gum disease or cavities.

Adult braces can fix almost as many issues as childhood braces. The main difference between the two treatments is jaw alignment. When adults consider braces, their jaws are usually developed, so the options for adult jaw correction are somewhat limited.
