Dentofacial Orthopedics – Part III
The Benefits of Dentofacial Orthopedics for Adults
While you may be suffering from jaw pain, headaches, and other painful symptoms of jaw misalignment, you may think it’s too late to do much about it. You’ll be glad to know it’s not too late.. Additionally, you may be constantly worrying about the appearance of your smile and may even have difficulty cleaning between your teeth – which can lead to dental decay and gum disease. These are all reasons to consider reaching out to our dedicated orthodontic team at Brooklyn Orthodontics.
If you had jaw problems as a child and they were never treated, you may begin having difficulties with speech as an adult. You might also experience damage and uneven wear to your teeth, as well as symptomatic TMJ disorders. As an adult who wants to correct your jaw alignment, you will not have the same range of options as a child does, because your bones are no longer growing. Therefore, adjusting your bite becomes more of a challenge. Nevertheless, there are treatment options available to successfully align your jaw and straighten your teeth.
Effective Treatment for Adults
Since the adult jaw and facial bones are fully solidified, traditional orthodontic treatment is often combined with surgery to establish proper bite alignment and to move the teeth into the proper position. Orthodontic treatment may include traditional metal braces or Invisalign – a popular alternative to traditional braces.
Even considering the more complicated approach needed for adult treatment, Dr. AlJanabi often utilizes dentofacial orthopedics to help adult patients achieve the smile of their dreams. Whether you’ve had braces in the past or not treatment at all, Brooklyn Orthodontics can develop the perfect plan to improve your jaw alignment, oral health, and smile aesthetics.
