Braces are no longer just for young people anymore, they are helping more adults than ever before to improve their oral health while aligning their smiles. At Galati Orthodontics in Scottsdale, Arizona, we are pleased to offer orthodontic treatment for adults and children.

Why would you need to straighten your smile as an adult? If you have never had orthodontic treatment while growing up, you might still be facing problems with your smile today. This may include having crooked teeth, crowded teeth, problems with your bite (over or under), issues with your jaw joints, and your jaw being out of alignment.

Unfortunately, these kinds of dental issues don’t just affect how your smile appears, but they can give you oral issues as well, including tooth decay, gum disease, problems eating, speaking, biting or chewing, and even headaches and earaches.

If you are experiencing any of these issues, you may benefit from orthodontic treatment, no matter what your age. However, as an adult, it may take longer to align your smile, anywhere from 18 months – 3 years. But this is an investment that will last a lifetime.

Our practice is pleased to offer the following options for straightening your smile:

  • Metal braces
  • Self-ligating braces
  • Clear braces
  • Invisalign®
  • Lingual braces

Our orthodontist, Dr. Galati looks forward to helping you with all of your alignment and will be happy to evaluate your smile and help you find the best option based on your unique needs. Just call 480-656-7801 today for more information.
