There’s a misconception that as we age our teeth don’t move as well, and that’s just not true. At ROG Orthodontics we treat patients from age 4 to age 86. I even treated my mother at age 80 with braces. Just remember that at ROG your initial evaluation which includes your x-rays and your photos is free of charge. In today’s world, there’s so many aesthetic orthodontic options available for adults. Come in, visit us and we will let you know what those options are for you.

Answer: False. At ROG, we see patients as young as 4 and as old as 86. Which, means you’re never too old to get a great smile.
