Adult Treatment

Share:

Approximately one in five orthodontic patients is an adult. The American Association of Orthodontists estimates that about 1,000,000 adults in North America are undergoing orthodontic treatment.

Crowded teeth and a poor bite can contribute to gum disease, bone loss, tooth decay and abnormal tooth wear, as well as jaw/joint problems (TMJ). Orthodontic treatment can help you with all these issues.

If your gums and teeth are healthy, you can undergo orthodontic treatment. Since facial growth is lacking, however, special treatment planning may be required in some cases.

Orthodontic treatment can restore good function, improve the health of the teeth, gums and jaw joints (TMJ's). It will enhance longevity of the dentition as well as promote self-esteem.
