Ask Dr. Gerling: Can Adults get braces?

>Too Old For Braces? John A Gerling DDS MSD McAllen TXWho’s afraid of “metal mouth” and the appearance of braces? Apparently, not adults. Recently, our staff at John A Gerling DDS, MSD read a fascinating statistic: the number of adults getting braces has actually climbed 24 percent since 1996! Braces help make your pearly whites strong, healthy and perfectly-aligned, also promoting positive self esteem. In an age—and society—where looks matter as much as anything, and at a time when evenly-aligned and sparkling teeth might be the difference between getting a job or a promotion, adults are choosing to invest in orthodontics. Orthodontic treatment with Dr. Gerling can be successful at any age, and adults especially appreciate the benefits of a beautiful smile.

If you’ve been thinking about getting that perfect smile, Dr. Gerling would love to have you visit for a consultation. Please give us a call to set one up!
