Why Adults may Need Orthodontic Treatment

  • Malocclusion – a situation where the teeth do not align together correctly
  • Crowded or unevenly spaced teeth – could potentially lead to tooth decay or gum disease
  • Pain or discomfort – Abnormal jaw ache or pressure due to crooked teeth
  • Appearance and oral health – The need to have a healthier oral cavity and a confident smile
For patients considering adult orthodontics, it is advisable to schedule an appointment to learn about possible options. When they meet with the orthodontist, the professional will ask questions about their health and perform a clinical examination. They may also request a series of X-rays of the head and mouth, as well as take photographs and impressions for fabricating a plaster model of the patient’s teeth. With these, the orthodontist will be able to recommend an effective treatment plan for the patient’s condition.
