Adults and Braces

Want to straighten your teeth?

Think braces are just for teenagers?

More adults are getting braces than ever before - why - apart from the obvious esthetic benefits, braces address the many symptoms that teeth in poor alignment contribute to.

Your teeth may not be straight, but the bigger concern for you might be daily headaches, neck and jaw discomfort, ringing in the ears, shoulder and back discomfort.  These symptoms are all associated with bite issues.  If your teeth are not in proper alignment then your bite will be off, contributing to gum disease and premature tooth loss, in addition to the above mentioned concerns. 

Getting braces is a big decision at any age. Getting braces as an adult means finding out which orthodontic system is best for you. At Cory Liss Orthodontics we offer the latest in brace systems with SureSmile, Damon Bracketing System and Invisalign.
