Adult/Adolescent Orthodontic Treatment

Orthodontic treatment is ideal for patients who want to completely transform their smile. For some people, orthodontic treatment is necessary because their misaligned teeth or other malocclusion problems are getting in the way of eating, speaking and smiling correctly. It is also not uncommon for patients to have issues with nighttime breathing due to their smile’s alignment. Because of this, proper orthodontic care is necessary to ensure that you are obtaining the smile of your dreams.

Why is Orthodontic Care Necessary?

Orthodontic care is necessary when a patient’s smile is misaligned, crooked or has other malocclusion problems. Some of the most common reasons to have orthodontic treatment performed include:

  • Underbites, overbites and open bites
  • Malocclusion problems
  • Crowding and crooked teeth

Who is a Viable Candidate for Orthodontics?

Orthodontic work isn’t just for kids, since many adults are beginning to benefit from treatment as well. An adult may want to have orthodontic treatment done because they were never able to have it done when they were a teenager or they might have already had braces but never maintained the results with a retainer. Orthodontic treatment is also great for kids and teens of all ages, since it gives anyone the ability to have the smile that they have always dreamed of having.
