adults and children don’t have to live with a crooked bite
Are your teeth a little crooked? Did you think that braces were just for children or teenagers? If you are an adult and would like a more youthful appearance there is no harm in having orthodontics later in life.
Here at the Meyer Dental Group, while we do help a lot of younger people have nice, straight teeth, we believe that adults can benefit too. Orthodontic treatment is not just a cosmetic luxury.
Improving the way you feel about yourself can do wonders for your overall health and well-being, so if your teeth are crooked, find out the many ways we can help to straighten them up.
How orthodontics can straighten things out
Orthodontic treatment and techniques have come a long way since many adults were children themselves! These days, children have many options available to them to avoid problems of overcrowding and crooked teeth. Children and teenagers have also become much more conscious of their appearance and dentists have devised various ways of straightening teeth without this being too conspicuous.
Adults, too, appreciate having a more natural looking smile and can benefit from the same techniques that are used for young people. When teeth are just a little crooked, clear aligners such as Invisalign, can be used, but if teeth need to be shifted more, metal braces and brackets can be used to do the job.
The Meyer Dental Group can adapt the method to suit your teeth
Invisalign have the obvious benefit of being almost invisible and do a good job of gently repositioning teeth over a period of time to achieve a more natural look. They can also be removed when brushing or flossing the teeth or when chewing or eating.
Invisalign are recommended to be worn for as long as possible each day (22 hours is the recommended period) so that the gentle repositioning will take place with minimal disturbance.
