Orthodontic Treatments for Adults – How to Get a Perfect Smile

dca-blog_orthodontics-african-american-woman-smile

Problems such as underbites, overbites, crooked teeth, and jaw problems are often corrected by orthodontic treatments early in life. However, if you missed out on braces as a teen, you can still improve your smile, and avoid the negative consequences of orthodontic problems with braces for adults. The best orthodontists understand the special needs and concerns of older patients and will work with you to get the results you desire. Because your body has stopped growing, you may require a longer treatment period than a teen, but the results can be life changing.

Discover the Orthodontic Treatments That Are Right for You

To determine if braces can correct your smile, ask your family dentist, or make an appointment with an orthodontist. Orthodontists specialize in correcting dental irregularities with custom-made devices such as braces for adults that gradually move teeth into a more desirable position. Your orthodontist can tell you what type of treatment is best for you, how much it will cost and how long the process will take.

Options for Adult Orthodontic Treatments

Metal braces for adults are the preferred choice for many patients, but other options are available. Examples include natural-looking ceramic braces, lingual braces that attach discreetly to the back of teeth and invisible, removable aligner trays. Your orthodontist can recommend the best solution for your dental condition and lifestyle.

Life with Adult Braces



Not even the best orthodontists can eliminate all the discomforts and inconveniences associated with wearing braces. You may have trouble speaking and eating until you get accustomed to your appliances. Maintaining good oral hygiene, and monitoring your consumption of sweet and starchy foods is essential. You should also avoid hard foods such as pretzels, nuts, popcorn, and ice; these can dislodge or damage your braces. For the best results, be sure to keep all your appointments with your orthodontist, so potential problems can be addressed early.
