Can Adults Get Braces?

Countless adults are dissatisfied with their smiles, but unfortunately, many believe they simply have to accept what they don't like about their smile. Thankfully, that couldn't be further from the truth.

The reality is that we can move healthy teeth at any age, which means anyone – adults included – can achieve a new smile through orthodontic braces. In fact, over a quarter of our orthodontic patients are adults! A new smile provides boost in self-esteem, confidence, and overall happiness that radiates throughout every arena of your life, and thanks to advances in orthodontic technology, achieving that smile has never been easier. Whether you simply want to fix a few minor crooked teeth or you want to completely revitalize your smile, adult orthodontic treatment can help!

Orthodontic Treatment for Adults in Buckeye, AZ

Orthodontics have come a long way since the days of old, and that's good news for patients. Modern braces are thinner, more comfortable, and more visually pleasing than their older counterparts, which means treatment is much more convenient. Plus, we offer a variety of alternative orthodontic treatments that make the process even easier. Your Verrado orthodontist will work with you to choose the best treatment for your lifestyle out of all the treatment options we offer:

What to Expect During Orthodontic Treatment

Getting orthodontic treatment as an adult is easier, more comfortable, and more convenient than ever, and we'll help you choose the best option and outline a treatment plan during your initial consultation. But while adult treatment is relatively easy and convenient, there are a couple of important details that adult orthodontic patients should know about.

First, while we can move healthy teeth at any age, we can't change jaw structure in adults in the same way that we can with children and teens. During childhood, the jawbone is actually two separate halves that fuse together some time during adolescence. That means we can use special appliances to guide jaw development for younger patients, whereas we can't achieve these changes with adults.

Second, adults are more susceptible to gum disease than kids and teens, and this becomes especially important during orthodontic treatment. Not only can gum disease derail orthodontic treatment, but orthodontic appliances increase the risk of tooth decay and gum disease, making for a particularly difficult situation. That's why we'll need to make sure we clear up any signs of gingivitis or dental decay before moving forward with orthodontic treatment.
