It’s never too late to achieve a beautiful straight smile… Braces aren’t just for kids any more. Tooth alignment can be changed at any age if your gums and bone structure are healthy.

Crooked teeth and a bad bite can contribute to gum and bone loss, tooth decay, abnormal wear of the tooth enamel and surfaces, headaches and jaw joint (TMJ/TMD) pain.
