How Braces Can Improve Orthodontics Problems for Adults

Braces for kids have always been popular, but now orthodontics for adults are also in high demand. In fact, nearly one million Americans wear braces. Discover whether braces can correct your adult concerns.

Braces Can Straighten Out these Orthodontics Issues

If you have orthodontic concerns, you first need to ask your dentist if braces can fix your problems. If braces are recommended, you need to see a family orthodontics expert called an orthodontist for treatment. Ask your dentist to recommend orthodontists in Collingdale who specialize in braces for adults. If your orthodontics concerns remain untreated, they can cause tooth decay, gum disease, misalignment of the bite, chewing problems, headaches, and earaches. In general, an orthodontist will place braces to correct these concerns:

  • Crooked teeth
  • Overcrowding
  • Poorly-spaced teeth
  • Underbite
  • Overbite
  • Jaw misalignment
  • Major jaw joint disorders like TMJ

The Difference Between Braces for Kids and Orthodontics for Adults

Adult orthodontics can offer the same benefits as braces for kids. In fact, family orthodontics experts say there’s only one small difference in treatment. For adult cases, treatment time may take longer, averaging between 18 months and three years. But the rest of the requirements are the same for everyone, such as the need for regular adjustments and wearing a retainer after treatment.

See How Affordable Braces Can Be

While you may think orthodontics is expensive, you can usually find affordable braces near you. Costs can vary widely depending on your dental problems, type of treatment chosen, and even the location of the orthodontist. That’s why you should compare several orthodontists in Collingdale to compare the price of treatment. Also, many orthodontists accept insurance, offer financing options, and take dental discount plans like DentRite to make affordable braces a reality.
