Orthodontic treatment for adults is becoming more and more common. In fact, the number of adults getting braces has actually climbed more than 25 percent in the last 10 years! More adults than ever are realizing that orthodontic treatment is not just for kids, and can help improve the aesthetics and health of a smile of any age! In society where appearance matters and can help make the difference between getting a job or a promotion, adults are choosing wisely to invest in orthodontic treatment.

Some of the most common reasons our adult patients come to us considering orthodontic treatment include:

  • Teeth that are crowded or spaced apart, sometimes as a result of tooth decay or gum disease.
  • Pain or pressure from crooked teeth or a misaligned jaw
  • A bad bite or malocclusion, causing your teeth not to fit together correctly
  • Simply for aesthetics and confidence.

Most of all though, adult patients come to see us seeking a healthier mouth and a more confident smile! What could be better than that?

We recognize that adult patients have different requirements, desires and requests than our younger patients. We will work with you to ensure you receive the most suitable treatment, designed specifically for you.

If you’ve been dreaming about that perfect smile, we would love to have you visit for a consultation. We understand you are busy, and will work with you to find a time that is convenient.

To make a FREE consultation appointment, call one of our convenient locations. For more information about Zanca Orthodontics, visit us at and like us on Facebook.
