Contrary to common belief, it is possible to effectively straighten teeth and correct a bite at any age. Adult patients often undergo orthodontic treatment as a preparatory phase before implantation and prosthesis. After careful planning with the implantologist and orthopaedist, the orthodontist will shift the teeth so that they are optimally positioned – creating the conditions for the fitting of implants and crowns.
Orthodontic treatment of adult patients is performed using a system of braces or a series of sequential aligners. The same devices are recommended for adolescents after all baby teeth are replaced by permanent teeth at the age of 12–13 years.
There are more reasons for orthodontic treatment than you may think:
Before you start choosing an orthodontist, it’s important to remember that you won’t be seeing this specialist for just days, but for months and years. That’s why it’s necessary to find “your” kind of an orthodontist. A trustworthy relationship with your dental specialist will help you follow their recommendations responsibly and you’ll be happy to come in for your monthly adjustment.
