Faced with crooked/crowded teeth and/or bite problems that detract from their appearance and increase the potential for gum disease and possible tooth loss, more American adults are choosing to undergo orthodontic treatment. The number of U.S. adults wearing orthodontic appliances currently stands at about 1.2 million, or 20 percent of the 5.9 million orthodontic patients nationwide, according to the American Association of Orthodontists. This number compares with 875,000 adult patients in 1989. Just as American adult patients have increasingly embraced plastic surgery in recent years, more grown-ups are coming to see orthodontic treatment as an investment in themselves and their health. It is never too late to correct tooth and bite problems that diminish quality of life and happiness.
