It is never too late to get the smile you have always dreamed of. In fact, according to the American Association of Orthodontics, adults make up one-fourth of the patients treated by orthodontists. Adult orthodontic treatment can help rectify misaligned teeth which can prevent jaw problems, difficulty chewing, tooth decay, and gum disease.
As an adult, your facial bones are no longer growing, which means it may be necessary to wear braces for longer periods than children, and more extensive measures may be needed. However many adults will still see similar results. Rohrer Center Orthodontics offers several common treatments to improve your smile including:
- Improving tooth spacing
- Replacing missing teeth
- Correcting over/under bites
- Repairing worn teeth.
Adult Orthodontics does not always mean needing braces. There are several alternatives including Invisalign that can help realign your teeth with nearly unnoticeable liners. Adult orthodontics can help prevent long term complications by improving teeth alignments, helping prevent bone decay, improving and repairing missing teeth, and giving you a brighter more confident smile. Schedule an appointment with Rohrer Center Orthodontics and we will help you decide the best options for your the health of your smile.
