Orthodontic Treatment for Adults

There is no age limit when it comes to getting a beautiful, healthy smile!

An increasing number of adults are undergoing orthodontic treatment. Two key reasons adults seek orthodontic treatment is for esthetics and alleviation of functional problems with their jaw or bite.  

Everyday adults are faced with life changing moments such as career change, job interviews, dating.  They understand the importance and the rewards that come with higher self confidence and improved self image, therefore the desire to improve their appearance has been found to be the primary motivation for adults to seek orthodontic care
Self-perception of their own attractiveness is a key motivational factor and an important factor in their expectation of treatment outcome.

 

Common problems with adults that may be corrected by orthodontia include:

  • Tooth loss
  • Jaw growth problems such as degradation of the jaw bones that support the teeth.
  • Teeth that have become worn down, chipped/cracked or have fallen out are typically not problems seen in children. These kinds of problems involve orthodontic treatments that may entail appliances such as braces, as well as treatments from other dental specialists.
  • Adult tooth problems are generally far more complex, and an orthodontic appliance may be only one facet of an overall care plan involving such other specialists as an endodontist, periodontist, cosmetic dentist or oral surgeon.
  • Adults are far more likely to experience gum loss or bone loss from gum disease usually due to miss aligned teeth and or crowding teeth.
