Orthodontics for Adults – It’s Never Too Late!

Have you ever heard of the term malocclusion? Malocclusion means that your bite does not align properly from front to back. The World Health Organization considers malocclusion one of the most important oral health problems. Although highly variable, it is estimated that 25% of adults in Canada have malocclusion. You can read more about the prevalence of malocclusion in Canada here.

Malocclusion can cause conditions such as:

  • Difficulty chewing
  • Issues with speech
  • Tooth decay
  • Periodontal disease
  • Troubles with jaw movement
  • Headaches
  • Muscle pain

and more.

While a cosmetic improvement is a large motivating factor for many adults seeking orthodontic treatment, often times adults can experience symptoms from their malocclusions, which can be a driving force in their decision to begin treatment. While straight teeth can help build confidence, there are many other reasons that orthodontic treatment is important. Orthodontic treatment for adults can sometimes be completed in conjunction with other specialists such as a periodontist, a prosthodontist, or an oral surgeon.

It is important for adults to know that orthodontic treatment has changed so much over the years! Orthodontic treatment can be esthetic, easy, and pain free. Whether you’d have braces or Invisalign, treatment is more discreet, more efficient, and more comfortable than it used to be.
