Treatment Options for Adults

Orthodontic treatment is no longer just for teens. In fact, the American Association of Orthodontists states that one in five orthodontic patients is over the age of 21. Many adults are choosing to receive treatment because they understand the importance of maintaining their health, and they want to feel better about their appearance. Adults everywhere are taking advantage of the opportunity to receive orthodontic care, and now you can too.

For many adults, the thought of having metal braces is enough to discourage them from receiving treatment. Fortunately, today’s orthodontic treatment options offer a variety of braces and appliances that are comfortable, aesthetic, and customized to meet your needs. Types of braces include:

Benefits of Braces at Any Age

At Hamer & Glassick Orthodontics, braces are more comfortable and convenient than ever before. If you are looking to improve your dental health and your self-esteem forever, consider the benefits of orthodontics at any age:

  • Braces improve oral health by straightening teeth and making it easier to remove plaque.
  • Braces improve your ability to speak, chew, and bite correctly.
  • Orthodontic treatment can help prevent periodontal disease, reduces bone loss, and prevents excess wear of tooth surfaces.
  • Braces improve the appearance of your face and smile, which naturally promotes higher self-esteem.

Orthodontic Evaluations for Adults

 A full evaluation takes place before orthodontic treatment begins. This is to examine, address and control issues more common to adults, including:

  • Periodontal disease
  • Jaw disorders such as TMD (temporomandibular disorder)
  • Gum recession
  • Missing, broken, or excessively worn teeth
