Adult orthodontics

Most people believe that braces are for kids only. The truth is, with better dental health awareness and improvement in the orthodontic treatment techniques and materials, more adults are seeking treatment with almost half of all orthodontic patients being over 21 years of age. In fact, there has been a significant increase in the number of patients in the 40 to 50 years age group in recent years.

The biological process involved in moving teeth is the same in adults as in children. Therefore orthodontic treatment can be successful at any age. However treatment approaches and objectives in adults may differ from that in children. This is because the concerns and requirements are different.

The fact is, you are never too old to be at your best. Regardless of age, if you are unhappy with your profile or with the way your teeth are, orthodontic treatment is a worthwhile investment.

Recent improvements and innovations have resulted in the use of more efficient and aesthetic orthodontic appliances especially for adults. These include smaller, tooth-coloured ceramic or composite braces and sophisticated tooth-moving wires such as space-age Titanium wires for better aesthetics, comfort and reduced treatment time.

Lingual or invisible braces (braces attached to the inner surfaces of your teeth) are also becoming popular with adult patients due to recent advances in the lingual techniques, better affordability and the fact that they are totally invisible.
