Final treatment decisions should be made in consultation with the family dentist, the orthodontist and other specialists, if necessary.

Ways Orthodontics Can Help Adults:

  • Can help prevent or improve periodontal problems
  • Can help prevent or reduce further bone loss around teeth
  • Improves ability of the dentist to restore missing teeth
  • Improves aesthetics for a better smile and facial appearance
  • Improves function of teeth
  • Improves self-confidence and self-esteem
  • Improves oral health

By working together, the dental team can achieve results for patients that cannot be produced alone.
