Orthodontics are not just for kids. More and more adults are seeking treatment for cosmetic purposes. Aesthetic braces can help correct:
Overcrowded teeth occur when there is a lack of room within your jaw for all of your teeth to fit normally.
Widely spaced teeth occur when you have extra space within your jaw.
Cross bites occur when the upper and lower jaws are both misaligned. It usually causes one or more upper teeth to bite on the inside of the lower teeth, and can happen on both the front and/or the sides of the mouth.
Deep bites occur when the upper teeth overlap significantly with the lower teeth.
Under bites occur when the lower teeth protrude past the front teeth, usually caused by undergrowth of the upper jaw, overgrowth of the lower jaw, or both.
Correcting all of the above tooth arrangements will reduce the possibility of plaque build-up that can lead to the development of gum disease.
Often, the most conservative treatment to improve a smile involves straightening the teeth using some kind of appliance or ‘brace’. More and more adults are realising that getting their own teeth in the right position is preferable – especially with the new techniques for moving teeth quickly.
