Adult Orthodontics in Santa Clarita, CA
Correcting Misalignment and Creating Confident Smiles
Just as we provide premier orthodontic care for children, we are committed to the same level of care for adults who seek to improve their smiles. At Adventure Dental, we believe that everyone deserves to wear their best smile possible, and patients can achieve this goal at any age. In fact, orthodontic care for adults is becoming more and more common; one in four orthodontic patients are adults, according to the American Association of Orthodontics. The most common dental issues in adults that orthodontic care can address include:
- Overcrowding of the teeth
- Open bite
- Deep overbite
- Missing lateral incisors
- Improper teeth spacing
Not only can orthodontic care help adult patients feel more confident in their smiles, but it can help prevent dental health issues as well. This is because crooked or misaligned teeth can also lead to excessive wear and tear on the teeth, gums, and jaw muscles, which can result in jaw strain and even TMJ disorder. Correcting the bite reduces improper forces that are placed on the teeth and will help ensure that you can keep your teeth long-term.
Why Are More Adults Getting Braces?
Adults of all ages are choosing to receive orthodontic care in order to improve their appearance and solve long-standing dental issues. Orthodontic care for adults works largely in the same ways that it does for kids. The main differences in care are simply due to the fact that adult teeth are no longer growing. Adult treatment can also take slightly longer due to the maturity and density of the adult bones. However, despite these minor differences, top quality orthodontic care is available at Adventure Dental for all ages. The treatment that is best for you will depend on your individual needs and preferences. Some of the orthodontic treatments we can provide patients in Santa Clarita include:
- Invisalign™ aligners
- Clear or metal braces
- Retainers and brackets
- Rubber bands
- Convenient digital iTero Element Scanner (no messy impressions required!)
- Customized mouth guards
