Orthodontic Treatment For Adults
Orthodontic treatment isn’t just for kids anymore. In fact, adults make up approximately 25% of patients currently benefitting from orthodontic care. Now, more than ever, adults are seeking out orthodontic treatment not only to look their best and live life with a more confident smile but also because people understand the importance of maintaining their dental health. Many people worry that they missed their opportunity for receiving the benefits of orthodontics but luckily it’s never too late to correct the alignment of your teeth and bite as long as your gums and bone structure are healthy. The new techniques and appliances we use greatly reduce discomfort levels, decrease the frequency of visits, shorten treatment time, and may allow you to choose from several options.
Approximately half of Dr. Buchwald’s adult patients choose to address their orthodontic needs with Invisalign. Invisalign is a system of clear, removable aligners that Dr. Buchwald personally designs and individually sets up for each patient. Many adults prefer this option because of the esthetics of the trays’ nearly invisible appearance and the ability to remove them to eat or for special speaking/social events. Dr. Buchwald will discuss with you at your consultation if this would be a good treatment option for your particular case.
Why Should You Consider Orthodontic Treatment?
- Straight teeth are healthy teeth - Teeth that are properly aligned are easier to keep clean with brushing/flossing and may help prevent other health problems.
- A beautiful, straight smile builds confidence - Orthodontic treatment can help improve your appearance and boost your self esteem, in turn, giving you a better quality of life and the freedom to smile without holding back.
- Mouths left untreated can get worse - Crooked teeth and a bad bite can contribute to gum recession, bone loss, tooth decay, abnormal tooth wear, headaches, and jaw joint (TMJ) pain.
