15 Apr How does orthodontic treatment for adults differ from children?
Adults have stopped growing and some may have experienced extreme tooth decay, loss of teeth or bone loss. In this instance, orthodontics is only one step in helping an adult patient achieve and maintain a beautiful, healthy smile. Working alongside your dentist, periodontist, endodontist and/or oral surgeon, we will ensure your orthodontic problem is managed well and works to complement all the other oral needs this patient has. Below are some common reasons adult treatment may differ from treatment for children:
•Damaged or missing teeth
•Lack of jaw growth
•Gum or bone loss
