The Benefits of Adult Orthodontic Treatment
Obviously one of the main benefits of orthodontic treatment is straight teeth and an attractive smile. However, the advantages go beyond cosmetic appeal and increased self-esteem. Straightening your teeth can actually improve your overall health and help you avoid:
- Tooth Decay
- Gum Disease
- Bone Loss
- Irregular Wear of Tooth Enamel
- TMJ/TMD Pain
With age, comes a few advantages, aside from wisdom and being able to eat dessert for dinner, of course. Since adult patients tend to be more motivated and compliant than children and teens, treatment can be even more efficient and effective. Additionally, those in their late teens and beyond are usually better candidates for choices like clear braces, lingual braces and Invisalign, which means you won’t necessarily need to have metal wires and brackets obscuring your smile.
