More Adults Than Ever Before Are Seeking Orthodontic Treatment

Today, a record number of adults are seeking orthodontic treatment to improve their smiles as more people realize it’s never too late to get the smile you’ve always wanted. Plus, there are now a variety of treatment options available that make orthodontic treatment more discreet, faster and comfortable.

According to a survey conducted by the American Association of Orthodontists (AAO) in 2014, over one-fourth of all orthodontic patients in the United States and Canada are adults. One reason a growing number of adults are seeking orthodontic treatment is because many adults have discovered that they can improve their smiles by wearing braces that are very low profile. Additionally, getting a straight, healthy and beautiful smile is more affordable than ever before.

In a 2013 AAO study, adults who underwent orthodontic treatment said they enjoyed seeing improvements in both their personal and professional lives due to the improved smiles they obtained. An impressive 92 percent of the survey participants said they would recommend orthodontic treatment to other adults they know.
