Orthodontic Treatment Isn’t Just For Kids

Posted on July 15, 2020 | First Time

More adults are receiving orthodontic treatment than ever before, and experts believe this trend is here to stay. With one-in-three orthodontic patients being over the age of 18, we believe oral health is becoming a priority. More and more people are beginning to realize the benefits of orthodontic care at any age: patients have a better bite, their teeth fit better, and they decrease the risk of future dental problems. When it comes to your orthodontic health, age really is just a number!

Orthodontic treatment is effective for children and adults alike! The physiological process of moving teeth is the same at any age, which means adults often receive the same methods of care that children do. While the processes are similar, there are recent orthodontic advancements that have made treatment more appealing to adults. Many of the appliances used in orthodontic treatments plans can now fit any lifestyle, minimizing appearance and increasing comfort. Some of these tools include clear aligners, tooth-colored braces, smaller but more traditional metal braces, and even braces that go behind the teeth. Your orthodontist will know which appliance is right for your case!

At Blossom orthodontic treatment is offered for both children and adults. We want to help you love your smile. But it’s more than that. Leaving misaligned teeth untreated can lead to further dental problems down the road, like tooth decay, gum disease, and difficulty chewing. When adults prioritize their dental health, they set a precedent for the families.
