At Junction Orthodontics we cater to all age groups from pre-teens through to adults. Don’t assume that it is only teenagers that are eligible for orthodontic treatment. Some quite treatable problems can be tackled in the pre-teen years when baby teeth are present and it is an age where early consultation can identify developing problems.
Needless to say, the teen population make up the bulk of our patients with braces or Invisalign the usual treatments of choice.
Adults have always been a part of most modern orthodontic practices. These days adults make up 20-30% of our patient numbers. Adult treatment times and the approach to treatment can vary from teen treatments however over the years these differences have reduced considerably. The introduction of Invisalign and aesthetic braces and increased patient awareness have heightened the demand for adult orthodontics so it is now quite the norm to see adults undertaking orthodontic treatment.
