Adult Orthodontic Treatment vs children’s treatment

A lot of the orthodontic treatment options available to children and teenagers are also available to adults. This is because regardless of your age, your teeth’s positioning can be moved over time by applying forces (like braces) to them to correct misalignments.

A key difference is that adults are no longer growing; more specifically, their jaw is no longer growing. Because an adult is fully grown, orthodontic treatment may take a little longer. If there are misalignments or abnormalities in your jaw as an adult, the likely solution is orthognathic surgery.

Adult Treatment Options: Metal & Ceramic Braces

Even as an adult, the time-tested and proven method of using traditional metal braces is still efficient. The same innovative technology used to straighten teeth in children and teenagers can be used in adults of all ages, too. The metal braces consist of brackets secured to your teeth using a special cement and a wire that is threaded through the loops in the brackets. Every so often, your braces are adjusted so you can get your perfect smile.

Adults are concerned with their image just as much as kids. To add to the issue of self-confidence, you may be relied upon for meetings and making important business deals. Ceramic braces, a much less noticeable treatment option, are also used frequently with adults.

Adult Treatment Options: Invisalign

Invisalign is a great way to straighten your teeth while also being discreet. This is thanks to being a clear aligner. Just like braces, clear aligners are a fantastic option for adult patients, too! Ahava Orthodontics is able to provide premium quality Invisalign treatment throughout the Fort Worth metroplex.

The Invisalign clear aligners are the most discreet way to straighten your teeth. They’re also incredibly convenient due to the ability to remove them for certain activities like eating or brushing your teeth. Invisalign is also a great option if you’ve had braces as a child and now as an adult your teeth have moved a little out of place. The clear aligners will easily get your teeth back in their proper position so you can keep your perfect smile.
