Orthodontic Treatments for Adults
Braces aren’t just for kids anymore! Tooth alignment can be changed at any age if your gums and bone structure are healthy. Bovenizer & Baker Orthodontics offers a variety of treatment options that are designed for different age groups, including adults in the Cary, NC and surrounding areas. A new smile can begin today!
Adult orthodontics at later stages in life can dramatically improve your personal appearance and self-esteem. Improving the health of your teeth and gums is equally important. Crooked teeth and a bad bite can contribute to gum and bone loss, tooth decay, abnormal wear of the tooth enamel and surfaces, headaches, and jaw joint (TMJ/TMD) pain.
Why Consider Orthodontic Treatment?
Not only do straight teeth look better but straight teeth also equal healthier teeth. If your teeth are crooked or overcrowded it can make flossing and brushing difficult and can lead to dental problems such as decay and gum disease. Orthodontic treatment can not only help boost your self-confidence but can give you a healthy new smile. Our practice recognizes that adults and children have different needs, and require a different level of attention and care so we will work with you to ensure that your needs are met with respect and understanding. Call our team today to book an appointment and find out how adult orthodontics can help you.

Advances in the World of Adult Orthodontics
The new techniques and appliances we use greatly reduce discomfort levels, decrease the frequency of visits, shorten treatment time, and may allow you to choose from several options, such as metal braces, translucent braces, or transparent aligners.
