In years past, orthodontic treatment such as braces was only for children and teenagers. Not only has there been advances in dental technology, but attitudes have changed, and more adults are discovering the benefits associated with adult orthodontic treatment. Dr. Tartakow has worked with and treated hundreds of adult patients, many of whom having severely compromised medical and dental problems and histories. Teeth that are properly aligned are easier to keep clean with flossing and brushing and may help prevent other health problems.
