Adult Orthodontics

Braces work the same for all ages. Many people believe that orthodontic treatment is only for children and teenagers, but that is simply not the case. Approximately one quarter of our practice is comprised of adults. Adult treatment can be more complicated with missing teeth, periodontal disease, and significant wear being more prominent in this age group, but it can be more beneficial for the same reasons. There are many situations where the restorative dentist needs the teeth positioned differently or the bite changed to allow for crowns, bridges, or implants to be placed with optimal results. We work closely with your dentist to give you the best results possible. Invisalign in Melbourne may be an option for adults whose smiles only require minimal adjustments.
