Braces for adults – It’s never too late
How many times have you looked in the mirror and wished that you had a better smile? It’s not just teenagers who can benefit from orthodontics. Adults with good oral hygiene and who have healthy gums and teeth can undergo orthodontic treatment to correct crooked and protruding teeth, perhaps close gaps or address other problems such as teeth not fitting together correctly.
Since the turn of the century, more and more adults are seeking cosmetic dental work, proving that our smiles are increasingly important for social reasons and to build self-confidence. Our clients range in age from 8 to 80 and beyond.
We can often help your own dentist achieve their treatment objectives for you too. Orthodontic treatment can be used to optimise the placement of implants, bridges, crowns or veneers.
We’re often asked if treatment takes longer for adults. The answer depends on the problem you present with. Some treatments are quick and simple; others take more time. Adult bone is a little denser than that of teenagers and so can take a bit longer to adapt to movement. Be wary of quick fix orthodontics: as in life, if it’s too good to be true, it probably is. These short term systems often cut corners which can affect long term stability of the result.
