A harmonious smile at any age

Orthodontic treatment isn’t just for children and teenagers! More and more adults are opting for orthodontic treatment to transform the aesthetics of their smile or improve their oral health.

Why opt for orthodontic treatment?

The benefits of orthodontics are both aesthetic and functional:

  • Improved smile aesthetics: Many adults want a more harmonious smile. Orthodontic treatment can correct problems such as overlapping teeth, gaps between teeth, overhangs and more. An aesthetically pleasing smile can boost self-confidence and have a positive impact on professional and social life.
  • Improved oral health. Correctly aligned teeth make brushing easier, reducing the risk of tooth decay, gum disease and bite problems. Proper dental alignment improves chewing and joint function, reducing pain and discomfort.

Treatment options for adults

There are several orthodontic treatment options for adults. The most common options include:

  • Traditional braces (fixed braces). Although often associated with teenagers, metal or ceramic braces are also a treatment option for adults. These metal or ceramic braces are fixed to the teeth and connected by metal arches.
  • Gutters or aligners. Removable orthodontic appliances such as Invisalign® aligners have revolutionized access to orthodontic treatment for adults. The huge advantages of this solution are discretion, comfort and flexibility. The aligners are very discreet and can be removed during meals.

The treatment process

The course of orthodontic treatment for adults is generally very similar to that for children and adolescents:

  1. The first consultation appointment. At your first appointment, your Smile Clinique orthodontist will examine your mouth and suggest the treatment plan best suited to your case. This 100% made-to-measure approach is designed to help you choose the solution that will enable you to achieve your goals.
  2. Drawing up a treatment plan. Following your first appointment, your Smile Clinique orthodontist will present you with your detailed treatment plan.
  3. Wearing braces or aligners until the end of treatment. At the beginning of your treatment, your Smile Clinique orthodontist will place your fixed appliances (braces) or give you a set of custom-made aligners that you will wear one after the other. Your Smile Clinique orthodontist will then meet with you regularly to monitor the progress of your treatment and adjust your fixed appliance.
