Adult Orthodontics - Lots of ChoicesSaturday, November 21st, 2015, 4:09 pm
There are lots of reasons that adults end up with crooked teeth. The good news is that there are lots of choices for adult orthodontics today.
It could be that your teeth weren’t perfect as a child but you never had braces. It could be that you had braces but didn’t wear retainers (you know who you are!). Your teeth could have shifted with age – a very common problem. Crowded, crooked teeth are not only unsightly — they are more difficult to keep clean and thus are more prone to tooth decay.
Options for adult orthodontics include: traditional braces, invisible braces and now you can even have orthodontic treatment if you are missing some teeth by using dental implants.
- Traditional braces no longer look like you have a mouth full of metal. Today we have clear brackets that are not noticeable when you smile or speak. Traditional braces are used to correct a wide range of problems including overbite- underbite, crowding and crooked teeth.
- Invisalign are invisible braces. Invisalign does not use brackets and wires to move the teeth. Instead, a series of clear aligners are created at a special lab. Each one of these aligners is worn by the patient for a specific amount of time and then the patient moves to the next aligner. Invisalign trays are virtually invisible when worn — your friends and co-workers won’t even know you are straightening your smile!
