Do Adults Make Good Orthodontic Candidates?

Are you thinking about getting braces as an adult? What a lot of people tend to think, is that orthodontic treatment is just for kids. But that’s simply not the case anymore!

At Purity Dental Mulgrave, we offer age-appropriate orthodontic therapy for every stage of life. Whether you have a teen who needs to fix a few crooked teeth, or you’re an adult with a malocclusion (misaligned bite) that’s starting to cause cosmetic or jaw problems.

The Truth About Adults in Braces

Adults make great orthodontic patients, because they’re committed to the process being a successful one. Adults tend to follow their home care instructions properly, keep follow-up appointments, and implement their retaining phase as directed. Although teens sometimes love to get braces, adults tend to think of it more as an investment that they want to see through.

Why Invest in Braces So Late?

Deciding to get orthodontic treatment when you’re an adult can help you better manage other dental conditions, such as:

  • TMJ disorder and headaches
  • Broken or worn-down teeth
  • Periodontal disease
  • Aesthetic concerns
  • Full mouth rehabilitation

By correcting the alignment of your teeth, you can have a better outcome for treatments like dental implants, sleep apnoea therapy, cosmetic veneers, and more.

Types of Braces for Adults

Depending on your unique smile, there is an option for every smile, every budget, and every timeline. From braces to clear aligners.

Discreetly straighten your smile to enhance the way it looks, with orthodontic options designed specifically for adults.
