Yes, Orthodontics Are Great for Adults!

Many adults who are thinking about orthodontic treatment are mostly interested in improving their appearance. However, you will also be happy to know that even as an adult, straighter teeth improve your overall oral health.

Improved Oral Hygiene

Of course, the easiest way to maintain a healthy smile is with daily brushing and flossing that rids your mouth of food particles and bacteria. But when crooked teeth overlap, it can be a challenge to brush all surfaces of your teeth efficiently, and inadequate cleaning can lead to decay and gum disease. Flossing is also a challenge because getting between crooked or crowded teeth can be difficult.

Eliminate a Teeth Grinding Habit

Chronic teeth grinding is often caused by misaligned teeth that don’t come together properly when you bite down. Night guards can protect your teeth, but the best solution for you may be orthodontic treatment. If a bite problem isn’t corrected, it can cause discomfort and even contribute to TMJ.

Improve Longevity of Fillings and Restorations

Poorly aligned teeth lead to grinding and bite problems, which can be uncomfortable. Even worse, a misaligned dental bite puts excess stress on your teeth, which can damage fillings and other restorations.

Available Treatment Options in East Tucson

If you are considering orthodontics in the 85749 area, Sabino Hills Family Dentistry offers multiple treatment options for adults. Depending on your needs, Invisalign, PowerProx, and Inman Aligners are all great choices. If you have more involved orthodontic needs, we may recommend traditional braces. But don’t worry, even traditional treatment today can be more esthetic when we use ceramic colored brackets and tooth-colored wires.

Are you considering orthodontics? Please call Dr. Michael Allen for a consultation so we can discuss your needs and help you decide which treatment option is right for you.
