Adults can benefit greatly from orthodontic treatment as well. More aesthetic smiles and functional bite will lead to improvement in their overall oral health and confidence. At Florian Orthodontics, we provide adult friendly orthodontic services such as Invisalign or clear braces.
Orthodontic treatment can correct the following conditions:
- A misaligned bite or malocclusion, causing teeth to fit together incorrectly
- Teeth are crowded or spaced apart, possibly leading to tooth decay or gum disease
- Desire for a healthier and more beautiful smile
There are surprisingly few differences between orthodontics for adults and children. Almost any treatment that can be performed for a child can also be performed for an adult. The most significant exception is that adults are no longer growing. There are certain types of orthodontic treatments that depend on modifying the growth of the jaws. When an adult patient is no longer growing, some treatments that could have been corrected non-surgically in children that will need to be corrected surgically in adults in order to get ideal results.
