Orthodontics for Adults
Orthodontic treatment can produce great results at any age. In fact, 1 in every 5 orthodontic patients today is an adult. Due to the range of comfortable and discrete treatment options, more adults than ever before are making the decision to improve their smile. At Orthocare Orthodontics, we proudly offer a range of progressive treatments including clear ceramic braces, Invisalign, as well as more traditional alternatives to suit your individual lifestyle.
Why consider orthodontic treatment as an adult?
Most adult patients seek orthodontic treatment because they have the natural desire for healthier teeth and gums and a more confident smile. Orthodontic treatment can not only improve your smile and appearance, it can also contribute to the health and function of your teeth. A range of problems result from untreated malocclusions or bad bites, where the teeth do not fit together properly. Crowded and overlapping teeth are more difficult to keep clean, and inadequate cleaning is a major contributing factor which can increase the risk of tooth decay and gum disease. Protruding teeth are more susceptible to damage such as fractures and chipping. Crooked teeth and a bad bite can also lead to uneven tooth wear, difficulty chewing, jaw joint problems, and minor speech impediments. All of these problems can be addressed with orthodontic treatment.
