- People of advanced ages have come into my office. Our feeling is that there is no age that precludes a patient from considering orthodontic treatment.
- We have treated patients well into their 90s. Although orthodontic in nature, these treatments may not be as comprehensive as those performed on younger patients.
- Many elderly patients come into our practice and tell us, “I’ve been wanting to do orthodontics my entire life and I never got around to it. I wanted to just come in here and see if I was still able to have it.”
- Treating these patients is very rewarding. This is because of the joy in their lives and in their faces when we are finished. All because of what we have done for them.
