At Davidson Cosmetic & Family Dentistry, we understand that you want to feel confident about your smile at every stage of life. If you are considering treatments to improve your smile, ask us about adult braces. One in five orthodontic patients is an adult, and it is never too late to receive orthodontic treatment and straighten your teeth and smile.

Although having a set of properly aligned teeth is an undeniable boost to your self-confidence and image, adult braces are not provided purely for cosmetic reasons. Braces also work to correct misaligned bites, adjust the position of your jaw and make space for crowded teeth. When left untreated, these issues can cause significant problems for your oral health and function later in life. Crowded and crooked teeth are harder to keep clean and healthy with regular brushing, increasing your risk of tooth decay, gum disease and tooth loss. Uneven bites often interfere with your ability to eat and speak normally, and can cause abnormal wear on your teeth, leading to tooth damage, tooth loss and in some cases additional problems with your bite and jaw.

When you visit our office for your initial consultation, our dentist will evaluate your mouth and discuss all aspects of your treatment with you, including the different types of braces available and your treatment cost. We are committed to providing you with quality care that will help you improve your smile and oral health.

We invite you to call us at 704-987-2277 if you have any questions about adult braces in Davidson, North Carolina, and schedule your appointment with Dr. Michael Wilhite.
