Braces aren’t just for children anymore. A large percentage of our patients are adults, and they agree that it’s never too late to improve their smile. In fact, 1 out of every 5 patients is over the age of 21. Over time crooked teeth and a bad bite can contribute to gum and bone loss, tooth decay and abnormal wear of the tooth surfaces. Orthodontic treatment at later stages in life can help prevent these issues as well as dramatically improve your personal appearance and self-esteem. Dr. Washington uses new techniques and appliances that greatly reduce discomfort levels, decrease the frequency of visits and shorten treatment time. Your options may include metal braces, clear braces, clear aligners like invisalign, and braces that go behind your teeth (lingual braces). The Brace Place is happy to provide our patients with Propel, a treatment that can reduce your orthodontic treatment 25-50%. Dr. Washington has transformed thousands of smiles.
