Orthodontic Treatment For Adults

It’s Never Too Late for a Stunning Smile

Are you an adult dreaming of a stunning smile? The good news is, it’s never too late to make that dream a reality. In fact, did you know that one in four orthodontic patients is an adult? You’re not alone in seeking orthodontic treatment to achieve that perfect smile.

At Zeifman Orthodontics, we are thrilled to offer specialized orthodontic treatments tailored specifically for adults like you.

How Orthodontic Treatment for Adults Compares To Orthodontic Treatment for Teens

While both teens and adults can benefit from the wonders of orthodontic care, there are several key factors that set adult treatment apart:

Adults are more likely to have other dental issues. It is essential to consider the presence of fillings, dental or gum diseases or worn teeth. These factors can significantly impact the methods and duration of orthodontic treatment.

Firstly, adults often require a different approach due to their fully developed jaws and facial structure. While teens’ bones and jaws are still soft, adults’ bones are dense and mature. Therefore, adult teeth may not respond to orthodontic adjustments as readily as the teeth of teenagers. Consequently, the duration of orthodontic treatment for adults may be slightly longer, as we delicately navigate the complexities of tooth movement in a more established dental framework.

Adults often exhibit a higher likelihood of maintaining a disciplined oral hygiene routine, compared to teens. This contributes to a smoother treatment experience.

At Zeifman Orthodontics, our expert team tailors treatment plans specifically to address the unique needs of adult patients. We understand that your smile goals may be different from those of a teenager, and we take that into account every step of the way.

Why Undergo Orthodontic Treatment for Adults?

Adults choose orthodontic treatment for many reasons. One primary motivation is the desire to enhance their appearance and achieve a beautiful smile. By addressing misaligned teeth and bite issues, braces can improve facial symmetry and restore dental harmony. Adults understand that an attractive smile can boost self-confidence and make a positive impression in both personal and professional settings. Additionally, braces can also correct functional problems, such as difficulties with biting and chewing, resolving malocclusions, relieving jaw tension (TMJ/TMD-related Issues), thus providing long-term oral health benefits and boosting confidence. With advancements in orthodontic technology, adults have access to discreet options like clear aligners, making the journey towards a straighter smile more appealing than ever before.
