Ask The Orthodontist

Adult Orthodontics

The most common questions I receive from adults are; is it
to late for me, or am I silly to want my teeth straightened?
The answer is absolutely no. The only additional
considerations are periodontal, restorative, or TMJ
(jaw joint dysfunction or pain). Many adults have always
been uncomfortable with their smile and believe that they
should just be satisfied with the way things are. In today's
society, when something is as easy to correct with a time
commitment and desire, it's silly not to get additional
information. A consultation to find information specific
to your situation is recommended.

Approximately 10-20% of typical orthodontic practices are adults. Without
exception, every adult has said that it was well worth it in the end, it wasn't
the difficult hurdle that they expected, and even that it seemed quicker than
they anticipated. Of course, the hardest part is the initial step and the first
month of adjusting, but following that, they only wish that they had consid-
ered orthodontics sooner.

Adults have additional options such as clear braces that now are so cosmetic
that they can hardly be seen. Invisalign can be considered as adults are non-
growing but from my personal experience, expectations cannot be as high as
with traditional braces and the orthodontist must be more selective in who
qualifies.

One difference for adult orthodontics is that no longer can growth be utilized
to an advantage. The bones are more "mature" and orthodontic mechanics
must be varied. Of course skeletal discrepancies must be treated differently
and sometimes compromises must be considered with extractions. Although
many adults tell me they wouldn't mind feeling more pressure, it is still more
efficient and physiologically stable to utilize light consistent forces. In this
way, teeth are moving at maximum efficiency and comfortably.
