Braces / Orthodontic Treatment


Why do some adults need orthodontic treatment?


There are a number of reasons why an adult might have crooked teeth or a bad bite and choose to have orthodontic treatment. Prolonged habits during childhood, such as biting your lips or sucking your thumb can cause the front teeth to become misaligned, people who have had orthodontic treatment as a child and haven’t worn their retainers as instructed may require further orthodontic treatment as an adult.

Who is orthodontic treatment suitable for?


Orthodontic treatment is an option for most adults with crooked teeth or uneven bites, just as it is for children and teenagers.

Some of the most common situations where orthodontic treatment might be considered in adults are:

  • Crowded, crooked or misplaced teeth

  • Protruding teeth (overbites)

  • Underbites

  • Deep bites

  • Open Bites

  • Jaw and/or facial asymmetry

  • Excessive spacing between the teeth

  • Realignment of the teeth prior to the placement of veneers, crowns, implants or even dentures
