Why Orthodontics is Becoming an Adult Issue

dca-blog_article-17_adults-getting-braces_1200x630

If you didn’t get braces as a teen, don’t worry; the option of adult braces is still open. Many adults are turning to orthodontics to gain the beaming smile and perfect bite they’ve always wanted. The correction methods employed by adult orthodontist braces are basically the same as those used for teens, but special considerations are required when dealing with an adult mouth. While teens rarely have serious gum disease, adults often do. Periodontal problems must be resolved before orthodontics treatment begins. The fact that adult jawbones have stopped growing may work in an older patient’s favor.

Adult Orthodontist Braces: Benefits and Options

Any adult who desires a healthy smile should consider braces as an option. A newly remodeled smile can boost self-confidence and can even be a good career move. Adults often need to wear braces longer than young patients to get the same results, so for those who need only minor correction and are self-conscious about wearing visible braces, invisible tray aligners may be a good option. The series of corrective aligners fit discreetly over the teeth and are removable for eating and oral hygiene. Porcelain and lingual braces are also options. Many orthodontics in Peoria employ a more gradual approach for adults to minimize discomfort.

Finding the Orthodontics in Peoria Residents Trust

It’s never too late to improve your smile. If you have healthy gum tissue and a stable jawbone, you may be an ideal candidate for adult orthodontics. To get the best results from your adult braces, count on the orthodontics in Peoria that patients trust. Check your local dental listings for more information.
