Adult Orthodontics Q & A

What is adult orthodontics?

Adult orthodontics is becoming a common treatment as adults realize it’s not too late to have your misaligned teeth corrected. In fact, one out of four orthodontic patients is an adult.

The professionals at Portal Family Dentistry & Orthodontics offer proper alignment for your teeth with excellent orthodontic treatment options. In addition to gaining the benefit of straight teeth, your bite can be corrected, which can decrease dental problems such as gum disease, tooth decay, or difficulty with chewing.

  • Overcrowded teeth
