Many adults are realising the benefits of experiencing straighter teeth later in life. They understand how your smile is something to be proud of and can have personal, professional and health benefits.

It is important to understand that as an adult, you jaw will have stopped growing and this can change your treatment options. Some factors to take into consideration are:

  • Gum or bone loss (periodontal disease)
  • Worn or missing teeth

The more common orthodontic concerns for adults are:

  • Worn down teeth
  • Improving smile aesthetics
  • Over-crowded or crooked teeth
  • Noticeable spaces in your mouth
  • Correction of longstanding bite problems
  • Temporomandibular joint problems
  • Implant space preparation for dental work to be done
  • Sleep apnoea and snoring

More adults are now undergoing Orthodontic treatment than ever before. In our practice over 40% of the patients are adults. We therefore offer a range of treatments including invisible treatment techniques. Our team will be able to find a customised treatment solution that fits within your lifestyle.

The latest invisible orthodontic appliances are not only less noticeable but far more comfortable. Orthodontic treatment does provide a conservative alternative in order to achieve a comfortable bite, good function and optimal facial aesthetics.

What options are available for adults other than visible braces?

Discrete treatment options such as Invisalign and completely invisible " behind the teeth" braces such as Incognito is offered to adults. Our orthodontic specialists specialise in both systems and will find a solution that is customised to suit your unique lifestyle and budget needs.
