Specialized Treatment For Adult Orthodontic Patients In The Mission Viejo Area

Good news! Braces aren’t just for kids anymore! More and more adults are choosing to correct their smiles, and there are many teeth-straightening options available that have been created with adults in mind. Tooth alignment can be achieved at any age as long as the patient is in good oral health. At South OC, we are proud to offer a range of braces options for all ages.

It’s Never Too Late For A Beautiful Smile

Orthodontist Chris Carter will work with you to design a treatment plan that fits your orthodontic needs. Seeking orthodontic treatment later in life can dramatically improve your personal appearance, self-esteem and overall health. Crooked or misaligned teeth can contribute to serious dental health problems such as:

  • Gum disease
  • Bone loss
  • Tooth decay
  • Abnormal wear of tooth enamel surfaces
  • Headaches
  • Jaw joint pain – TMJ/TMD

We are proud to provide our adult patients with the latest advancements that orthodontics has to offer.
