“It’s never too late to achieve the confident, beautiful smile you always wanted” says Dr. Danzer. Orthodontic treatment can be successful at any age. It is a common misconception that adults cannot receive orthodontic treatment like children and teens. Adult orthodontics is becoming more popular today and now there are more cosmetic choices available. Danzer Orthodontics offers adults multiple state-of-the-art treatment options to suit your needs.
So what kind of treatments are available to adults?
The first orthodontic treatment that may come to mind is the traditional metal braces. Today, this style of braces is also available in a clear “tooth colored” material with ceramic braces. Invisalign® is often the adult favorite because it can go virtually unnoticeable. They are clear trays made from the molds of your teeth. This treatment consists of multiple trays, with each one slightly moving your teeth.
Are there any benefits to adult orthodontic treatment?
Yes, many! Here are some to name a few:
- Confident smile: There is nothing like wanting to show off your smile. Misaligned teeth cause many adults to feel self conscious about their smile
- Healthier gums: Food is more likely to get trapped and cause plaque buildup, which is harder to brush and appropriately floss, increasing the chances of gum disease (periodontal disease). Crowded teeth can cause redness and swelling of the gums.
- Stronger teeth: Teeth are constantly put under pressure. Crooked teeth can receive more wear and tear and a misaligned bite can mean uneven force on your jaw. Trapped food in misaligned teeth can cause the tooth decay.
- Overall Improvement of health: A misaligned bite, worn or missing teeth can make it more difficult to fully chew food, causing gastrointestinal problems. Inflammation of the gums has been linked to heart disease and diabetes.
