Orthodontics for adults

Orthodontic treatment is no longer just for children and teens. The American Association of Orthodontists states that one in five orthodontic patients is over 21. Many adults choose orthodontic treatment because they understand the importance of maintaining their health and want to feel better about their appearance.

Adults everywhere are taking advantage of the opportunity to receive orthodontic care, and now you can too. Whether you’re 18 or 80 years old, TBraces offers adult orthodontics near you in Arlington or Herndon, Virginia. With two convenient offices, an expert team, flexible payment plans and free initial consultations, our practice makes adult orthodontic treatment simple and accessible.

Why consider orthodontic treatment?

Here are some reasons why you should consider getting orthodontic treatment as an adult:

  • Improved oral health: Properly aligned teeth are easier to clean with regular brushing and flossing. Orthodontic treatment can help prevent other oral health issues.
  • Boosted self-confidence: Orthodontic treatment can give you a beautiful, straight smile that can enhance your self-esteem and quality of life. You’ll have the freedom to smile without feeling self-conscious.
  • Prevent long-term health issues: Ignoring the need for orthodontic treatment can lead to more severe dental problems down the line, which can be more costly to treat in the long run.

Common issues adults seek orthodontic treatment for:

  • A bad bite or malocclusion, causing teeth to fit together incorrectly

  • Teeth are crowded or spaced apart, possibly causing tooth decay or gum disease

  • Abnormal jaw pain or pressure caused by crooked teeth

  • The desire for a healthier mouth and a more confident smile
