Reasons for Adult Orthodontics
Obviously one of the main benefits of orthodontic treatment is straight teeth and an attractive smile. However, the advantages go beyond cosmetic appeal and increased self-esteem.
Orthodontic treatment can help correct crooked teeth or spaces that you’ve been self-conscious about for years. Straight teeth and a great smile can give you the confidence and pride you’ve always wanted.
Additionally, those in their late teens and beyond are usually better candidates for choices like clear braces, lingual braces and Invisalign, which means you won’t necessarily need to have metal wires and brackets obscuring your smile.
Your Teeth Can Shift
Believe it or not, your teeth don’t stop moving in adolescence. Teeth that seemed straight and aligned in youth could have shifted later in life. This can lead to jaw pain, trouble brushing, or a smile you’re unhappy with.
With age, comes a few advantages, aside from wisdom and being able to eat dessert for dinner, of course. Since adult patients tend to be more motivated and compliant than children and teens, treatment can be even more efficient and effective.
Maintaining Dental Health
If you leave misaligned teeth untreated, you may end up with other dental problems such as tooth decay and gum disease. You may also notice abnormal wear on the surface of your teeth or that it’s difficult to chew normally.
Straightening your teeth can actually improve your overall health and help you avoid:
- Tooth Decay
- Gum Disease
- Bone Loss
- Irregular Wear of Tooth Enamel
- TMJ/TMD Pain
