Adult Orthodontics

It is never too late to achieve the perfect smile you’ve always wanted! In fact, the American Association of Orthodontists reports that one in five orthodontic patients is over the age of 21. Adults may choose to correct their orthodontic problems not only for cosmetic reasons, but to maintain their health as well.

Difference between orthodontics for teenagers and adults:

As you get older, you heal more slowly. Thus, adult orthodontic treatment can take longer because the doctor needs to allow more time for your mouth to heal between teeth movements. The bones in the jaw have stopped developing by the time one becomes an adult, so there is the possibility that an older patient may need surgery to align the jaw.  Adults are also more likely to have missing teeth which can change the way the teeth are positioned. 

Adults can choose to fix their orthodontic problems for a variety of reasons:

While the idea of braces as an adult may be daunting, there are many options you can choose from. At Behl Orthodontics, we are proud to offer: Invisalign® (which uses clear aligners), clear braces, self-ligating braces and traditional metal braces for adults of any age.

 

Remember, straight teeth lead to healthy teeth. The issue with crooked or spaced teeth is that there is an increased likelihood for dental hygiene problems. It is more likely for build-up to occur between teeth, as well as wear and tear that can end up costing you more in the future. Also, never underestimate the power of confidence that a beautiful smile can give you!
