ASK MOSHIRI: Are Adult Braces Worth the Trouble?
Question: Are Adult Braces Worth the Trouble?
Dr. Maz Moshiri’s Answer:
About 40% of my orthodontic practice consists of adults. More and more, adults are becoming educated about the benefits of straight teeth and seeking information on if adult braces can improve their smiles and oral health. Tooth alignment can be changed at any age if your gums and bone structure are healthy.
Orthodontic treatment at later stages in life can dramatically improve your personal appearance and self-esteem. Improving the health of your teeth and gums is equally important.
Crooked teeth and a bad bite can contribute to gum and bone loss, tooth decay, abnormal wear of the tooth enamel and surfaces, headaches and jaw joint (TMJ/TMD) pain.
Remember, your mouth is the gateway to your body and as an adult, braces can be a life-changing procedure that can improve and/or eliminate these many ailments and symptoms.
