Orthodontic treatment can be availed of at any age. In order to treat adults, different treatment plans are designed and carried out by the orthodontists. Appropriate treatment plans are suggested by the orthodontists after making a thorough examination of the dental abnormality through X-rays and other methods. They also gather all other required information and analyze your overall health condition before the treatment. By using the different treatment plans it is possible to straighten crooked teeth, correct the problems related with bad bites such as overbites, underbites, and crossbites, align extensively spaced teeth, overcrowded teeth, rectify problems with chewing and many more.
In order to straighten twisted teeth, advanced corrective appliances including conventional metal braces, detachable invisible aligners such as Invisalign, clear or white braces, retainers and many other options are available. Braces are the popular choice among adults, but the appropriate corrective appliances will be suggested by the orthodontist depending on the nature of the abnormality.
The duration of the treatment depends on the patient and the complexity of the problem. In normal situations, the treatment can be completed in around twelve months. During the treatment consultation with the orthodontist every four to eight weeks is very important. For obtaining further positive results, the patients are provided with retainers in order to preserve the teeth in their new positions until the bones and gum are stabilized.
When you are planning to undergo orthodontic treatment for improving your smile and appearance, make sure to benefit from the services of an experienced orthodontist. Have a discussion with your orthodontist about your requirements and the expected results, so that the orthodontist can make use of the right treatment plan.
