There is no age limit for orthodontic treatment. In fact, with the many invisible methods available today, more and more adults are seeking comprehensive cures. These include clear, ceramic braces and Invisalign plastic aligners.
Properly positioned teeth are far easier to clean and care for. In addition to improved chewing and speech, a correct bite plays an important role in reducing future wear of the teeth and stress on the supporting bone and jaw joints.
Adult treatment ranges from simple cosmetic correction to more complex problems – like tooth loss, tooth wear and jaw discrepancies. Our specialist orthodontists will often co-ordinate treatment with your general dentist and other dental specialists, optimising the aesthetic and functional outcomes.
Contrary to some fears, your regular lifestyle is minimally affected during treatment. Most adults enjoy enormous support and encouragement from family and friends when choosing to undergo treatment.
