Adult Orthodontics

The art and science of shifting teeth to their optimal position- is in the throes of a 21st century revolution, driven by adults and senior citizens (25% of total orthodontic patients are adults), but inspired by new materials and new technology that allow for lighter, smaller, less conspicuous appliances, small tooth colored brackets and smaller- resilient nickel titanium wires and clear slip on and slip off invisible trays.

Adult orthodontics has joined up with Botox and liposuction in our contemporary quest for bodily perfections. May be now that many of us have whitened our teeth, we also want perfectly aligned teeth.

Two Phase Orthodontic treatment:

Phase one: Ideal First Step! Functional appliances- ages 5 to 12 is ideal time.

  • Early treatment should be initiated for habits such as tongue thursting and thumb sucking
  • A constricted airway due to swollen adenoids and tonsils
  • Mouth breathing or snoring or clenching
  • A bad bite
  • Deep bite, overbite, narrow or underdeveloped jaws

Phase two: Second Step 

  • Braces or invisalign.
