Adults Use Orthodontics As Well

Most people think of orthodontics only as a treatment for children with crooked or misaligned teeth. However, adults can also benefit from orthodontic treatments. Some adults might be treated for mild spacing issues or a slight overbite.

Other adults may need complete orthodontic treatment due to teeth that have been misaligned due to an injury or genetic condition. There are several common treatments that adults can have to improve their smiles.

Types of Orthodontics:

Braces

Braces are orthodontic appliances placed on a patient’s teeth to correct alignment problems like an overbite or an underbite. Teeth can also be moved forward or backward. These issues are common in children but can also affect adults. Braces are generally made of metal, ceramic, or clear plastic. They can be placed on the teeth of patients of all ages, including children and adults. Braces are a prevalent form of orthodontic treatment.

Invisalign

This treatment uses a series of removable aligners placed on the teeth to move the teeth into place. Invisalign is an excellent choice for adults who may have to have retainers after braces and children who may not have enough room in their mouths for braces. Both adults and children can significantly benefit from this treatment.

Discuss Your Options Today!

Orthodontics is usually undertaken as a precautionary measure in children or teens to correct a slight overbite or correct spacing between teeth. However, in some cases, adults also require orthodontic treatment to correct a misalignment of teeth.

Depending on the severity of the problem, orthodontic treatment can take anywhere from a few months to a few years. Where other treatments such as braces are visible, Invisalign is a great option because the aligners are not visible.

This means you can wear clear aligners at work or in public with ease. However, when you visit our office, we will discuss your options in detail to find out what will work best for you.

FAQs

Does getting braces hurt? What about wearing them?

If you have never worn braces before, you might wonder if they hurt. The truth is that there is no pain with braces. You might feel a little pressure when the braces first go on, but that soon passes.

As for wearing them, you must be diligent about cleaning your teeth and flossing regularly. The braces are not meant to replace good oral hygiene, they are there to help you achieve a better smile. You should still brush twice daily, clean behind your teeth, and floss regularly while wearing braces.

If you have a loose piece or feel something is wrong, you should see your orthodontist as soon as possible. If a loose piece remains in your mouth, you could swallow it, which could be dangerous to your health.

Will I wear a retainer when my braces come off?

The answer is yes if you’re wondering if you should wear a retainer when your braces come off. A retainer simply helps keep your teeth in place to ensure that all the time and money spent on braces will last a lifetime.
