Many adults are seeking braces to improve the appearance of their teeth and looks. The techniques used in the movement of adult teeth are similar to those used in children. Gaps between teeth, crowding, protruding front teeth, and teeth in abnormal positions are problems that may be corrected in the adult by orthodontic treatment.
