Can adults benefit from orthodontic braces?

Orthodontic braces are historically associated with teenagers. Today, however, an increasing number of adults are choosing to wear braces to straighten their teeth and correct bad bites. It is estimated that almost one-third of all current orthodontic patients are adults. Orthodontic braces are predictable and incredibly successful at realigning the teeth. Braces work in the same way regardless of the age of the patient, but the treatment time is greatly reduced in patients who are still experiencing jaw growth and have not been affected by gum disease. Fortunately, orthodontic braces have been adapted and modified to make them more convenient for patients. There is now a wide range of fixed and removable orthodontic devices available, depending on the precise classification of the malocclusion (bad bite). In short, an adult can experience the same beautiful end results as a teenager.

Can pre-teens and teenagers benefit from orthodontic braces?

Many teenagers are ambivalent about getting braces. On the one hand, they like the idea of perfect teeth, but on the other hand they are nervous about whether the braces will cause pain and discomfort. The good news is that the placement of orthodontic braces is not at all painful, and the end result will be a beautiful straight smile. Patients of any age can benefit from orthodontic braces; they tend to work much quicker on pre-teens and teenagers since they are still experiencing jaw growth. The American Association of Orthodontists (AAO) recommends that children should first see an orthodontist around the age of seven. An orthodontic examination may be beneficial before age seven if facial or oral irregularities are noted.

Are retainers important?

Retainers are used to keep the teeth in place once your braces are removed. It takes time for your teeth to settle into their new position. A retainer prevents your teeth from shifting. Some retainers may be removable. Others are fixed or bonded behind your teeth. Teeth are like the rest of the body in that they have a tendency to change. Once you stop wearing the retainer, slight changes to the teeth could happen.

The doctor treated my mom with a professionalism way above par. His manners, his eye for detail, he would show my mom step by step what he was doing. Everything you want from a Dentist. I would highly recommend this Dental office for all your dental needs."
