At Barkate Orthodontics, we are seeing more adults in our office than ever before. Our team is excited to help patients who did not have the opportunity to receive orthodontic care in their younger years, or who want to achieve a stunning smile no matter their age. The American Association of Orthodontics reports that one in five orthodontic patients is over the age of 21, and we applaud every adult who seeks out treatment to accomplish healthy, straight teeth. As our number of adult patients continues to rise, we have added additional choices to our treatment options, including Invisalign services, so that all of our patients can receive quality care discreetly.
Do I Need Orthodontic Treatment?
There has never been a better time for adults to consider orthodontic treatment. Recent advancements in technology have allowed us to provide stunning results in a shorter amount of time. Schedule a consultation with your preferred Ladera Ranch, Newport Beach, and San Clemente orthodontist, Dr. Hal Barkate, to determine if you are a good candidate for adult treatment. While we can effectively move teeth at any age, sometimes periodontal disease or other problems arise that require care prior to administering orthodontics. Here are a few common problems for which many of our adult patients seek treatment.
Bite Problems – These include a cross bite, open bite, under bite, and over bite.
Overjet – Also referred to as protruding teeth, and usually effects the upper and lower front teeth.
Spacing – Many adults have large gaps in between their teeth that they desire to close.
