Toronto Adult Braces Treatment with your Markham Braces and Invisalign Specialist
Your Unionville Orthodontics Team often fields questions from parents, whose kids are currently in treatment, about their own teeth. They have seen the amazing results in their children, but are unsure about whether they can successfully undergo treatment. Common questions are about age and types of appliances.
Age is not the primary concern with tooth movement. What is essential is healthy gums and bones. With these two factors in place, adult orthodontics is generally not an issue. Our office provides aesthetic options such as Invisalign, clear ceramic braces, and iBraces / Incognito (inside braces) for those wishing to have a less conspicuous treatment. Dr. Tam has successfully treated patients in their 60s and 70s! In fact, nearly 40% of the patients at Markham Centre Orthodontics are adults. With an environment suitable for people of all ages, our adult braces patients feel extremely comfortable while at the office.
Here's a video from the American Association of Orthodontists featuring Dr. Larry Wang from Maryland regarding adult orthodontics. Dr. Tam spent time with Dr. Wang, who is originally from Richmond Hill, at the Costa Rica Invisalign Study Club for top Invisalign doctors last year.
