Orthodontics can benefit anyone with crooked teeth, overbites, underbites, crossbites or overcrowded teeth. This dental specialty helps solve irregularities of the jaw and face. An orthodontist is a dentist who advances their education after graduating from dental school. They are trained in treating people of all ages in getting the straighter teeth they’ve always wanted while treating issues like TMJ or jaw stiffness from poor jaw alignment.
Orthodontic treatment has become more popular with adults over the last several years. One of the reasons for that is because there are many more treatment options to help adults improve their smile through orthodontics.
Treatments have a lesser impact on people’s lifestyles. Based on the treatment you choose, you might be able to go several weeks between appointments. And for adults worried about what it might be like to have braces at their age, there are now nearly invisible treatment options or appliances you can remove or wear part-time to avoid braces in a professional setting.
