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.
