Orthodontics for Adults

Contrary to popular belief, orthodontics is not only reserved for children and teenagers. Adults are also able to benefit from orthodontics to correct malocclusion and teeth alignment problems. The dentists of Centre Dentaire NP offer several orthodontic treatment options adapted for adult teeth, in a way to improve the functional and aesthetic aspects of your mouth and smile.

Orthodontics is Also for Adults!

There is no age limit for undergoing orthodontic treatments. Moreover, more people are resorting to orthodontics to solve problems with the alignment of their teeth or the occlusion of their jaws. While some problems to be solved are similar to those of children or teenagers, the needs of adults could be different. For one thing, their mouth is no longer growing, which can influence the choice of recommended treatments. On the other hand, certain lifestyles require for more discreet treatments adapted to daily activities. During an orthodontic consultation at Centre Dentaire NP, your dentist will take these elements into account in addition to reviewing your general oral health to assure that the treatment can be applied as needed.

Uses of Orthodontics for Adults

The problems treated in adult orthodontics are substantially the same as those treated in adolescents. In fact, the oral conditions leading to these treatments are similar. They can affect the aesthetic appearance of the smile and also affect the functions of the mouth while having long-term consequences on your oral and general health. Certain North-American sociological studies even confirm that in more than 80% of cases, people note the smile of a person before any other physical trait
