Why are Adults Choosing Orthodontic Treatment?


Orthodontic Treatment Options

Many adults are discouraged by the thought of having big, bulky braces. Today’s orthodontic treatment offers many varieties that are more comfortable and aesthetically pleasing.

There are many benefits to orthodontic treatment as an adult and it is never too late! Teeth that are not aligned properly are very difficult to brush and floss. As an adult, this often causes tooth decay and periodontal disease. These conditions continue to get worse over time and do not fix themselves unless the cause of the problem is addressed!

There are some differences in orthodontic treatment as an adult versus as an adolescent. The main difference is that the jawbone in an adult is done growing, which could require orthognathic surgery to align the jawbones. In a child, the jawbones can be manipulated because they are still developing.
