The Benefits of Adult Orthodontics

There are a number of benefits from having adult orthodontic treatment. First, straight teeth and a properly aligned jaw are the easiest and best ways to maintain oral hygiene. They ensure that you can protect your oral health and avoid things like dentures. It will also make you feel confident about your smile and good about your appearance.

Of course, orthodontics will give you a healthier and more attractive smile, which can impact your self-esteem and appearance. There are a number of ways that orthodontics can affect your health positively and help you maintain oral hygiene more easily.

Adults are typically more susceptible to gum disease, bone loss, and decaying and missing teeth, giving them many reasons why they could benefit from orthodontic evaluation and treatment. Orthodontic treatment will ensure your jaw and teeth are properly aligned, which can assist with oral hygiene and reduce many potential health risks down the road.

Although it takes longer on average for adults to experience results than youth, many adults spend less time with braces. Realignment is a common need for adults who have previously had braces. If this is the case, these fixes will be easier to carry out and should take a short time.

How Does it Differ From Child Orthodontics?

As we’ve discussed with both child and teen orthodontic treatments, young jaws are still developing. By the time you reach adulthood, your jaw has set and will no longer grow. This makes realigning teeth and your entire mouth more difficult. It is also potentially more painful for the person and will likely take a longer period of time.

Gum recession and bone loss are more common in adults, so having orthodontic treatment and aligning your jaw and teeth earlier will potentially reduce the likelihood of this happening to you in adulthood.

Even as an adult, though, having this can help increase your health going forward and mitigate the risk of potentially more invasive, painful, and dangerous surgeries. Decaying and missing teeth are more likely to occur when your jaw or teeth are not aligned properly, so having orthodontic treatment can help fix this.

More Treatment Options for Adult Orthodontics

As an adult, you have more options to choose from for your orthodontic care, many of which offer a more subtle and aesthetically pleasing form of treatment. Along with traditional metal braces, adults have the choice of clear braces, Harmony, and Invisalign, making them less obvious and noticeable, which helps boost your confidence and self-esteem. When choosing the type of braces your want, you have more options to choose for your lifestyle.

Temporary implants are a relatively new option and are later removed once treatment is completed. They can reduce the likelihood of jaw surgery and offer more control over moving teeth.

We believe it’s never too late to achieve the smile you’ve always wanted! As an adult, it can be disappointing to hear you need braces, however, with the advancement in technology, more treatment options are now available.

Don’t stress over having braces when you can choose a less noticeable option like Invisalign or Harmony Braces. With diligent care and cleaning, your treatment will be over in no time!
