Adults may worry that they’ve missed the chance to straighten their teeth because they believe children are the only ones who should have braces. Because it’s never too late to embark on orthodontic treatment, every Medford orthodontist strives to eliminate doubts about braces.
Furthermore, there is no reason to wait any longer with the rise in patients choosing modern treatments like clear aligners. If you didn’t have the chance to wear braces as a child, this is your time to finally reap the rewards of a beautiful smile!
A comfortable bite can lead to pain-free dental function and equally distribute the pressure across the teeth. When opening and closing their mouths, patients with malocclusion endure clicking, popping, and discomfort due to jaw joint abnormalities (TMJ dysfunction).
Malocclusion affects the ability to chew. Inadequate alignment results in an uneven distribution of force while chewing. This may result in flattened teeth and uneven dental enamel wear and tear.
Having properly positioned teeth can be extremely challenging. The oral germs that cause tooth decay can grow in difficult-to-reach places.
Is it ever too late to get braces? The answer is no, even if getting braces in your 20s is a smart move. Getting braces as an adult has advantages beyond just appearance. It also enhances your general health and welfare. For instance, orthodontic care lowers the risk of tooth decay and helps to stay clear against several types of gum disease.
