Orthodontic treatment can be successful at any age, and adults especially appreciate the benefits of a beautiful smile. The key factor for being able to have orthodontic treatment is not age, but rather the health of the gums, teeth, and supporting bone.
Sometimes, we will refer adults to a periodontist, a dental specialist for the gums and bone, to ensure there is adequate support and that teeth can be moved safely. Once any gum treatment or clearance for orthodontics has been completed, you can get started with your treatment towards an MCO smile!
Many parents of our patients often start treatment after their children have completed theirs, and state that they wish they had started their own treatment earlier!
At MCO, more than 35% of our patients are adults, and our office environment and customer service are designed to reflect that. We offer aesthetic options such as Invisalign® and ceramic braces to fit the lifestyles of parents and young professionals.
If you previously thought you were too old for orthodontic treatment, you’ll be pleasantly surprised by what we can do for you at MCO!
