It’s never too late to improve your oral health. Smile Appeal Orthodontics welcomes and treats patients of all ages — we see many adults in our offices who are excited to get the smile they’ve always wanted! More adults are seeking orthodontic solutions as new treatment options have become available, such as Invisalign.
We have the solution for you, regardless of previous orthodontic treatment. You can improve your oral health with orthodontic treatment — in fact, adult orthodontic treatment can improve the longevity of the teeth by improving the bite. All the teeth function better when the bite functions the way that it should.
Teeth can be moved at any age, but certain health conditions can slow the progress. Your orthodontist may require coordination with a general dentist if complications arise. In general, an adult patient’s teeth move at the same rate as an adolescent’s.
Periodontal disease is more prevalent in adults than children — that’s why it is important to maintain good oral health before, during, and after your orthodontic treatment.
If an adult jaw is severely misaligned, a combined orthodontic/orthognathic surgery treatment may be recommended. In these cases, we work with an oral surgeon to ensure successful treatment.
