Adult Orthodontics

Orthodontic treatment can be successful at any age and adults especially appreciate the benefits of a beautiful smile. An increasing number of adults now opt for orthodontic treatment and about 1 in 3 orthodontic patients is an adult. Today there are more cosmetic orthodontic options, such as ceramic brackets, Invisalign and Lingual orthodontics, so concerns about the social inconvenience of metal braces can be avoided.

Orthodontics can also help prepare your mouth for implants, veneers, crowns and bridges. Your dentist will advise you if orthodontics is in your best interest to prepare your teeth for these dental procedures.

Adults also may have experienced some periodontal disease and lost bone that support teeth, you may require periodontal treatment before, during and/or after orthodontic treatment. Periodontal bone loss can also limit the amount and direction of tooth movement that is advisable.

For adults with an unusual bite or disparity between the upper and lower jaw sizes, surgery is more often required to obtain the best result because jaws are no longer growing.
