Many people undergo some kind of orthodontic care. Whether it’s for cosmetic or medical reasons, orthodontic care can come in the form of many different types of treatments, whether they involve retainers and expanders, braces and spacers, or any combination of the above. When most people think of orthodontic care however, they often tend to imagine teens with braces. Traditional metal braces tend to be the most popular form of prescribed orthodontic treatment, and teenagers are the preferred demographic for orthodontic care, but that doesn’t mean that there aren’t other options in that orthodontic care can’t be applied to people of other ages. Here at Davis Family Orthodontics our Loganville adult orthodontist can help older patients achieve the smile they’ve always wanted.
Teenagers tend to be the preferred demographic for orthodontic treatment because they generally have all of their permanent teeth yet they are still growing, which makes the treatment a lot easier to implement. But just because a patient is older and is no longer growing and developing does not mean that they can’t undergo any kind of orthodontic treatment at all. Usually, the difference between orthodontic care for a teenager versus an adult is the treatment time. Because an adult has already developed, the treatment. Generally, orthodontic care for older patients takes longer or it may require additional oral appliances in order to help achieve the same results. Our Loganville adult orthodontist here at Davis Family Orthodontics can help older patients find the perfect orthodontic treatment for them and make sure that it is implemented successfully so that their smiles can be improved and made healthier.
