Braces were once thought to be solely for teens, but today, orthodontic treatment can be a great option for patients of all ages. In fact, thousands of American adults choose braces every year, and the right treatment can give them smiles that are both healthier and more attractive. Our Glendale adult orthodontist can help you find a treatment that fits your smile and your lifestyle.
Our adult orthodontist in Glendale often recommends orthodontics to adult patients who needed but did not get orthodontic treatment as children, or those who have developed orthodontic problems later in life. Problems such as crooked teeth, overbites, underbites, crowded teeth, gapped teeth, jaw joint disorders, bruxism, and jaw alignment problems can all lead to decay, gum disease, earache, headaches, speech disorders, and biting and chewing difficulties.
Glendale Adult Orthodontist
Adults can benefit from orthodontic treatments in many of the same ways that children can. Your smile will be straighter and more attractive, and it will usually be easier to keep clean. Your jaw will be balanced and less vulnerable to damage from being imbalanced. In most cases, our Glendale adult orthodontist can complete treatment plans in 12 to 36 months, depending on your needs and the type of treatment you need. Some types of treatments can be completed in just a few months while other more complex cases can take several years. After treatment, you will need to wear a retainer to maintain your results.
You may be a candidate for adult orthodontic treatment if you have teeth that are crooked or misaligned. To find out, schedule a consultation with our adult orthodontist in Glendale. We can help you find the best orthodontic solution for your smile, which may include braces or clear braces. During your treatment, you will have periodic evaluations about every four to six weeks to monitor your progress and adjust your treatment plan.
