The truth is that while misalignment can certainly affect your appearance, it can also have long-term effects on your overall oral health. That is why Dr. Michael Young stresses the importance of orthodontics for patients of all ages. Although children and teens more commonly wear braces, many adults benefit from orthodontia, as well, particularly if they are struggling with overall bite misalignment.
Dr. Young offers several orthodontic treatment options, including metal braces, ceramic braces, and clear aligners. Based on health needs, cosmetic concerns, and age, he can recommend the most appropriate type for you or your child. No matter which type you select, he will routinely monitor your progress to ensure the best possible treatment outcome.
