Adult Treatment - Change Your Smile

Change your Smile and Change your Life (Adult)

Many adults believe that they are too advanced in their age to have orthodontic treatment but this is not so. Providing the supporting bone, soft tissue and teeth are healthy, orthodontic treatment is possible at any age. Even teeth that have received root canal therapy and/or have crowns can be moved. Only dental implants cannot be moved since they are designed to fuse to the bone in the site in which they are placed.

There are a variety of available adult treatments that can range from very simple limited treatments utilizing removable appliance therapy to comprehensive multibracket orthodontics combined with jaw surgery to correct the most complex jaw discrepancies.

Whatever the issue is, isn't time you investigated possible options to improve your smile today? In our experience, the adult patients we treat are very often the most rewarding because they can appreciate the major impact a change to their smile can make. In all of our years of practice, we have never encountered an adult patient who regretted having embarked upon an adult orthodontic program to change their lives for the better.

When Dr. Eric Luks began his orthodontic practice in 1968, adult orthodontics was a very new scope of practice for orthodontists. In fact, most orthodontists at the time chose not to treat adult patients because they were too complicated and referred them to our practice. Coincidentally, Luks Orthodontics, has always had a high percentage of adult patients in active treatment.

In fact, Dr. Eric Luks has many times said : "There is no amount of make-up, hairstyles, or fashionable outfits that can make as big a statement as a beautiful smile, nor have as grand a return on the investment." If you are unhappy with your teeth, the fit of your bite or don't smile because you don't wish to show your teeth, let us help you make that important life altering change. Change your smile and change your life.
