More Adults Are Pursuing Orthodontics
Orthodontic treatment can have a multitude of benefits for patients of all ages, including adults.
In fact, adults currently make up about one in every five orthodontic patients. Here’s why:
Look Good, Feel Good
Orthodontic treatment can help correct crooked teeth or spaces that you’ve been self-conscious about for years.
It can give you the confidence and pride that come with straight teeth and a great smile.
Your Teeth Can Shift
Believe it or not, your teeth don’t stop moving in adolescence. Teeth that seemed straight and aligned in youth can shift later in life.
This can lead to jaw pain, trouble brushing, or a smile you’re unhappy with.
Maintaining Dental Health
If you leave misaligned teeth untreated, you may end up with other dental problems such as tooth decay and gum disease.
You may also notice difficulty chewing or abnormal wear on the surface of your teeth.
