Are you an adult looking for ways to enhance your smile? You may have questions about adult orthodontics and whether there is an age limit to orthodontic treatment for adults. The good news is, you can receive orthodontic treatment at almost any age. Watch this video by Dr. Andrew J. Dusel to learn more about how adult orthodontics can help you, regardless of your age.
- Adult orthodontic treatment is a little different from that for children, adolescents and teenagers. This is because adults are no longer growing.
- When we contemplate repositioning the teeth in an adult’s jaws, we often face the challenge of getting the jaws to fit together better. Additionally, in cases of significant discrepancy, we may have to consider surgical orthodontics.
- Sometimes, it is necessary to compromise by reaching for a solution that gets the teeth to fit together better, even though we may not get the skeleton to fit ideally.
- Adult treatment requires a different approach because we can no longer modify growth and development or modify the width and length of jaws
