These days, more and more adults are turning to orthodontic treatment to obtain the healthy, beautiful smile they’ve always wanted. Although most people associate orthodontics with children and teens, orthodontic treatment can be used at any age to obtain a healthy smile as long as your gums and bone structure are healthy and can support the treatment. Learn more about our approach to adult orthodontics below.

Why Are Adults Turning to Orthodontic Treatments?

Orthodontic treatments have evolved over the years to become more effective, discreet and affordable. Many adults who did not have the access or ability to receive orthodontic treatment during their adolescent years are now finding that the treatment options available are highly desirable. Plus, orthodontic treatment can have other effects, like producing more confidence and self-esteem, along with ensuring overall oral health, preventing gum disease, bone loss, enamel wear and headaches and joint pain caused by TMJ / TMD issues.

How Do I Know If I’m a Candidate for Orthodontic Treatment?

Most adults qualify for orthodontic treatment, provided they have healthy gums and jaw bones. Here are some of the issues and qualifying factors adult treatment can address:

  • Any bad bites, or malocclusions, that causes your teeth to fit incorrectly, like overbites, crossbites and more.
  • If your teeth are crowded and overlapping.
  • If you have large gaps or spaces between teeth, either caused naturally, or because of a missing tooth.
  • If you are experiencing abnormal jaw pressure or pain caused by crooked teeth or misaligned jaw structure.
  • If you have an aesthetic desire to have a perfect smile and a healthier mouth.

Multiple Treatment Options

There are many treatment options available to adult patients. Depending on your specific needs, you may elect to utilize one of these treatment options:

  • Traditional Metal Braces – great for treating most orthodontic problems.
  • Invisalign – Perfect for minor issues. They are invisible and removable, so you can maintain your normal diet and lifestyle.
  • Lingual Braces – these braces are fit to the insides of your teeth, making them virtually invisible while still being strong and versatile, like metal braces.
