Your La Grange Orthodontist
Very often, people believe that braces are only suitable for children or teens. It is quite common thought among adults that It’s too late anyway, but they are often mistaken. Eventually, the process of moving teeth is the same at any age. Your La Grange Orthodontist believes that it’s never too late to correct orthodontic problems. Teeth and jaws are still movable in the middle ages, however, adult treatment takes a little longer than a child’s treatment.
The Difference Between Adult Teeth and Children’s Teeth
There are a couple of differences in adult and kid’s orthodontic treatments. In adult orthodontics, the patient’s teeth move much more slowly. This means that other issues may arise and a combination of different solutions is required. If those problems are existent mostly due to a discrepancy in the jaws, a combined approach including orthodontics and “jaw” surgery is available at our orthodontic clinic in La Grange, IL. This treatment option can achieve very notable improvements in the appearance of the face and function of your jaws as well as your teeth.
Usually adults seek orthodontic treatment for different reasons – some were not able receive braces treatment as a child, as their parents could not afford braces, or perceived them as less socially acceptable in the past. It is common that, the way they have viewed their smile has been on their mind for years, and now that orthodontic treatment became more common, faster and affordable, they are ready to begin their treatment at Orthodontic Experts. Some other had braces in their childhood, however, they did not follow orthodontist’s prescriptions, and neglected the importance of wearing their retainers to keep their teeth in the right position. Later, they could have experienced a relapse, which occurs by the natural tendency of teeth to return to their original position. That is another reason why adults can seek an orthodontic treatment.
Generally, orthodontic treatment for adults is designed to properly reposition the teeth, that are overlapped and crowded, so with the help of braces or Invisalign, they can be straightened, so that better access for cleaning can be achieved, which is always a formula to healthy teeth and beautiful, shiny smile.
