Braces for Adults
There have been tremendous advances in adult orthodontic technology in recent years. Treatments are faster, less painful, and extremely versatile. That being said, adults don’t have the benefit of growth on their side. Adult bone growth is mostly finalized, so all the benefits of growth modification that come along with treating teens are obsolete. Adults can still achieve amazing results with orthodontic treatments like braces and Invisalign but it is always more advantageous to undergo treatment during teenage years.
Orthodontic treatments can fix bite problems including the alignment of teeth/jaws and usually last 1 – 2 years depending on condition severity.

Also known as corrective jaw surgery, this procedure is used to correct the structure of the face or jaw. Common conditions that require this type of surgery include severe overbite or underbite, obstructive sleep apnea, biting or swallowing difficulties, facial trauma, chronic jaw pain, cleft palate, and facial unevenness. This orthodontic procedure can be used for both health and cosmetic purposes. It is a viable alternative in cases where correction is not possible through regular appliances such as braces.
We understand the stress of undergoing a surgical procedure and ensure that patients remain informed and comfortable throughout the process. If you are struggling with issues due to improper facial or jaw structure, schedule an appointment at our Davie, Tamarac, or Plantation office. Our additional specialties include braces, Invisalign, early interceptive orthodontics: phase I, early interceptive orthodontics: phase II, and orthodontic appliances.
