Number Of Adults Seeking Orthodontic Treatments.

Number Of Adults Seeking Orthodontic Treatments.

The Wall Street Journal (10/5, Reddy, Subscription Publication) reports that an increasing number of adults are seeking orthodontic treatments, and dentists are offering more discrete options. According to the American Association of Orthodontists, more than 1.2 million adults received orthodontic treatment in 2012, up 36 percent from 1996. Orthodontic procedures for children and teens rose 32 percent in that period to 4.65 million.

It’s great to see a rise in statistics for orthodontic treatment, and here at the office a good 60 percent of our staff have chosen to seek orthodontic treatments in their adult years. 🙂
