Adult Orthodontics in Manhattan, NY

braces for adults upper west side nycTeenagers aren’t the only ones who can benefit from braces. Today, it’s become more and more common for adults to seek out teeth straightening treatments, even when they already had braces earlier in life. Even if you didn’t previously wear braces, you probably had plenty of friends who did.

Maybe you’ve experienced changes in tooth alignment because you weren’t compliant with your retainer when you were younger (a common occurrence among adolescents), or now you have concerns about the alignment of your teeth even if you’ve never worn braces before. Whatever the reason, we can help you with your orthodontic treatment.

Why Adult Braces?

As an adult, you’re probably more aware of your smile and see the benefit of a perfect smile. Maybe you have a career in which a great smile is an asset, making orthodontics a smart investment. Or you may be planning a major life event, such as a wedding, where you want to wear the most perfect smile possible. For still others, having teeth out of alignment can sometimes affect their ability to brush and floss effectively, which increases the potential for gum disease and cavities. Whatever the motivation, adult braces and orthodontics are becoming more and more common, and your options are many.

Types Of Adult Braces

Just about every type of braces and orthodontic treatment can be used for adults. Adults may have unique priorities as they make their treatment choices because they are typically more concerned about aesthetics than children and teens can be. For this reason, it’s very common for adults to choose more discreet treatment options such as clear braces, lingual braces, or Invisalign – although metal braces remain a popular option for adults as well.

In some cases, dentofacial orthopedics, which is typically used for children, has also been successful with adults. Palatal expanders and other such devices can create some changes in the jaw bones to accommodate all of the teeth without crowding. While these devices tend to achieve faster and more dramatic results in children, their use in adults can be effective. For some patients, surgical treatment is also useful to improve the bite.
