Why Adults Get Braces
The adults that we schedule for braces have several reasons why they are opting for the treatment. Sometimes a general dentist has forwarded them to us. The most common motives for this are:
- Excessive teeth wear due to incorrect bite alignment
- Require movement of teeth to perform a dental procedure
- Crowding of teeth (which may be difficult to keep clean leading to cavities)
Once we identify exactly why you need braces, we will formulate the options to meet your expectations and goals. Everyone’s dental “fingerprint” is unique. Hence, I will create a treatment plan that considers every detail of your situation.
