Adult Orthodontics On the Upper West Side

braces for adults upper west side nycWhile many teenagers benefit from braces, today more and more adults are seeking out teeth straightening treatments, even if they’ve had braces earlier in life. If you didn’t wear braces as a teenager, you probably had plenty of friends who did.

If you wore braces as a teen, maybe you weren’t compliant with your retainer and now you’re experiencing changes in tooth alignment (a common occurrence among adolescents), or now you have concerns about the alignment of your teeth even if you’ve never worn braces before. Either way, we can help with adult orthodontic treatment.

The Positives of Adult Braces

Adults seem to be more aware of their smile and see the benefit of a perfect smile. Perhaps you have a career being in front of a camera or a large crowd and having a great smile is an asset. In which case, orthodontics is a smart investment. Maybe you’re planning a major life event, such as a wedding, where you want to present your most dazzling smile. For 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 you have many options.

Which Typ of Adult Braces Is Right for You?

Pretty much every type of braces and orthodontic treatment can be used for adults. Adults may have different priorities because they are typically more concerned about aesthetics than children and teens. Which is why 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 situations, 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.
