FAQ

What is the most common orthodontic problem for adults?

One of the most common problems plaguing adults is tooth crowding. As we age, our teeth continue to move and may end up completely malaligned. Besides, many patients can suffer direct trauma to their teeth, which pushes them out of alignment. Orthodontics can help solve all that.

Why orthodontic treatment matters for adults

Orthodontic treatment can help adults realign their teeth and enjoy additional benefits in oral health, self-esteem, and respiratory complications. Orthodontics is one way many adults can ensure their teeth maintain good health and function.

How is orthodontic treatment different for adults?

Unlike younger patients and teenagers, adults’ teeth are no longer growing or developing, so an orthodontist cannot leverage these natural movements to realign their teeth as fast. Besides, adults will have to pay close attention to their oral health, as periodontal disease can work against your orthodontic care.

How long does orthodontic treatment take for adults?

On average, an adult treatment with braces can take anywhere between 18 to 36 months. However, each patient’s treatment length will vary depending on their circumstances, choice of orthodontic appliance, and complexity of the orthodontic problem.

Can adults have orthodontic treatment?

Absolutely yes. There’s no age limit to start your orthodontic care, meaning you can simply talk with your trusted orthodontist at any point and begin your treatment with braces or clear aligners when you are ready to fix your bit and get a healthy and beautiful smile.

What are the side effects of adult orthodontics?

Wearing braces or clear aligners during your orthodontic treatment can lead to a couple of side effects, such as mild discomfort when your teeth realign, limitations to your dietary choices, and an increased potential for tooth decay when the patients don’t pay close attention to their dental hygiene.
