[Question] ||| "Can adults have orthodontic orthodontic treatment?"

[Answer] ||| "Absolutely! Contrary to the opinions of most adolescents and teens, people do not fossilize after the age of 25. Yes, our jaw bones become a little more dense, but the cells and tissues required to allow tooth movement remain very much alive and in working order.

There are different sets of concerns in treating adult patients with orthodontics, primarily related to maintaining healthy bone support during treatment as well as coordinating treatment with their general dentist if future restorative work is planned (crowns, bridges and implants). Ensuring your orthodontist understands these differences and customizes a treatment plan that meets your individual needs while coordinating your over-all dental health care with your dentist are the keys to successful orthodontic treatment.

 In addition, many of today's technologies allow for aesthetic orthodontics appliances that allow for treatment without feeling like you are a teenager again. Clear/ ceramic braces, Lingual (braces behind the teeth) and Invisalign (clear trays) are all options available to patients considering orthodontic treatment. Ask your orthodontist about these aesthetic options and their experience in coordinating adult orthodontic treatment before you embark on your new smile journey!
