What Is Adult Orthodontic Treatment?

When you're an adult, your orthodontic concerns may be more than cosmetic. You might want to change your smile for aesthetic reasons, fix a problem that's been bothering you for a long time, or correct issues with your bite and jaw alignment. Some patients who come to see Dr. J have issues with crooked, crowded, or spaced teeth.

Adult orthodontics straighten your teeth which makes them easier to clean. This helps reduce issues associated with decay and periodontal disease. Improving your oral health can also make a massive difference to your overall health.

The advances in adult orthodontics mean that today's treatment plans are more effective than ever, and the solutions are less noticeable and more comfortable for patients. We use LightForce custom brackets for many of our adult patients, resulting in faster treatment times and braces that are aesthetically pleasing.

Orthodontic treatment for adults can begin at any age. Dr. J has made it his mission to provide as many orthodontic options as possible to secure you a brilliant smile! He believes you are never too old to pursue your smile goals.

Book an appointment today to see Dr. J for your adult orthodontic needs and feel the benefits of improved self-esteem, confidence and oral health!

Why Might You Need Adult Orthodontics?

There are a variety of reasons why you may need to have adult orthodontics.

Pain Relief

A misaligned bite (malocclusion) can create abnormal jaw pain and pressure. When this condition is left untreated, a bad bite can lead to tooth decay, gum disease, difficulty chewing, and abnormal wearing of tooth enamel. You may also experience headaches, migraines, and TMJ pain. Expert orthodontic treatment may help solve these problems by eliminating the pressure that causes the pain. Research also suggests that orthodontic treatment may help with sleep apnea and improve your ability to chew and speak. Straighter teeth and proper jaw alignment vital to your overall health and well-being.

Bad Habits & Long Term Health

Habits such as smoking, tongue thrust (pushing your tongue between your teeth when you swallow), and clenching or grinding teeth may also lead you to need adult orthodontic treatment. An investment in orthodontic treatment is an investment in your long-term health. It may dramatically decrease the amount you'll spend on dental care and healthcare across your lifetime. You'll achieve a healthier, more comfortable bite and enjoy a lifetime of happier, more confident smiles.

While braces and aligners are used to straighten your teeth, veneers can change your teeth's shape, size, and color. A veneer is a thin, customized shell of tooth-like material, typically porcelain, which covers the front surface of your teeth to improve their aesthetics. In some instances, Dr. J may combine straightening treatments and veneers to completely change your smile.
