Common Orthodontic Problems in Adults
There are two things adults should know about orthodontics. First of all, you’re not too old to start orthodontics, as there’s no age limit to this type of treatment. Second, adults need to be very attentive to their oral health status and be mindful of periodontal disease before they start their treatment.
Here are a few conditions that need orthodontic treatment:
This is one of the most common types of orthodontic problems out there. You can easily identify this condition because teeth will overlap as if trying to occupy the same space.
Here, you will notice your upper front teeth cover your lower front teeth, and you bite down and make your molars touch. Some people also call this a deep bite.
An underbite is the opposite case of an overbite, as it is your lower front teeth that cover your upper front teeth once you bite down and make your molars meet.
Treatment Options for Adult Orthodontics
Many adult patients are now choosing to start their orthodontic treatment because of how many good options there are. You’ll be able to start your treatment by setting an initial appointment with Dr. Hong and reviewing the available treatment options with which you can fix your smile.
These are some of the orthodontic appliances you can get here at Hong Orthodontics to get the smile of your dreams.
We rely on the finest medical-grade stainless steel to carefully and gradually realign your teeth. We affix brackets to each of your teeth to work as anchors, and then we connect them all with an archwire that gradually pushes and pulls all teeth into the desired position over the course of several months.
Here, the principle is the same as with metal braces; however, we use a different material to manufacture brackets and even the archwire. These clear ceramic composites have a color that more closely resembles your natural tooth color, making it a variation that is far more discreet.
As far as discretion goes, it’s clear aligners that take the top spot. These removable, BPA-free plastic trays are amazing at solving almost all of the same orthodontic problems that might necessitate braces. This means that you could easily choose between these appliances and start your treatment with the one that suits your needs best.
