Orthodontics for Adults

Orthodontic treatment is no longer just for children and adolescents; in fact, the American Association of Orthodontists sites that one in five orthodontic patients is over the age of 21. Many adults are choosing orthodontic treatment because to feel better about their appearance and improve their overall dental health. Adults everywhere are taking advantage of the opportunity to receive orthodontic care, and now you can too.

Why would adults consider orthodontic treatment?

  •  An imperfect bite, or malocclusion, causing teeth to fit together incorrectly and possibly triggering some jaw discomfort
  • Crowded or excessively spaced teeth, encouraging causing tooth decay or gum disease
  • Abnormal pain, or pressure, in the jaw that is caused by crooked or crowded teeth
  • The desire for a healthier, more attractive smile.

Treatment options for adults

For many adults, the thought of having metal braces is enough to discourage them from receiving treatment. Today’s orthodontic treatment options however, offer a variety of braces and appliances that are comfortable, aesthetic, and customized to meet your needs. Some of the many options are:

  • Clear/Invisible braces-such as Invisalign
  • Ceramic braces-clear and barely visible
  • Self-ligating braces-systems that move teeth more quickly than ever before
  • Lingual braces-fitting behind the teeth
  • Invisible braces

Why should you consider orthodontic treatment?

  • Straight teeth are healthy teeth — Teeth that are properly aligned are easier to keep clean with flossing and brushing, and may help prevent other dental health problems.
  • A beautiful, straight smile builds confidence — Orthodontic treatment can help boost your self-confidence, giving you a happier quality of life and the freedom to smile without holding back!
  • Mouths left untreated can get worse — Failing to receive orthodontic treatment when it’s needed can create long-term dental health issues, and end up costing you more in the end.
