Orthodontics for Adults
There are a lot of people who believe that orthodontic treatment is something that is reserved for children. Even though it is true that many people view braces as a Rite of Passage, it is also true that there are situations where adults can benefit from orthodontic treatment as well. It is never too late for you to straighten your teeth, improve your confidence, and maximize your oral health with orthodontic treatment.
At Dr. Matt Gaworksi Orthodontics and Falcon Ortho, we proudly provide orthodontic treatment to patients of all ages in Colorado Springs and Falcon, including adults. Learn more about how orthodontic treatment for adults can be helpful, and reach out to us to make an appointment with our team.
The Problems Orthodontics Can Address
There are plenty of potential issues that an orthodontist can address. For example, if your teeth are not totally straight, an orthodontist can help you customize a treatment plan to address the issue.
Or, if there is a problem with your bite, an orthodontist can also help you with that. In some situations, people have to deal with an overbite or underbite. If your jaw is not properly aligned, an orthodontist can help you address the issue.
You might have issues brushing or flossing certain surfaces of your teeth. You may even have issues with your teeth protruding from your mouth. An orthodontist can discuss your treatment options with you, customizing your treatment plan to meet your needs.
The Treatment Options
During the past few years, orthodontic treatments have come a long way. Now, there are plenty of treatment options available, and working with a dentist from Dr. Matt Gaworksi Orthodontics or Falcon Ortho can help you find the right treatment options to meet your needs.
For example, you might be interested in Invisalign trays. Invisalign trays will gradually move your teeth into the right locations. You don’t have to worry about changing your diet because you can take the trays out when you eat. You also don’t have to worry about navigating wires and brackets because you can take the trays out when you brush and floss.
If you decide to go with braces, there are plenty of choices. You might be interested in conventional metal braces, or you might be interested in lingual braces. If you are curious about ceramic braces, we can also talk about that treatment option.
Once the treatment is done, you must keep your teeth in the right spots. That is where a retainer can be helpful. If you are looking for a professional team that can help you fashion a retainer, we are available to assist you.
