What are the disadvantages of having work done as an adult?

Even though orthondotic treatment can produce great results on adults of all ages, it is better to begin as early as possible.

As you probably know, the bones of an adult, unlike those of a child, are no longer growing. As a result, treatment can be slower and take longer to accomplish. Another reason for the longer treatment time is the bone support for an adult’s teeth which is firmer than that of a growing child and is naturally more resistant to tooth movement.

Though this is a hindrance, it isn’t a deterrent, and the end results are usually well worth the wait.

As long as the teeth, the gums, and the underlying bone are healthy, teeth can be straightened at any age. So, it is always worthwhile to check your situation at our Calgary orthodontic office.
