Orthodontic treatment can be successful at any age, and adults especially appreciate the benefits of a beautiful smile. One of every 3 patients in orthodontic treatment is over the age of 21, and this number is increasing. Dr. Jeannotte has extensive knowledge and experience in adult orthodontics and welcomes patients of any age.
Removable aligners (like Invisalign) are a great option for most adult patients, although some orthodontic problems are treated more efficiently with traditional braces.
Adults may present with complex problems that require a team approach to treatment. If necessary, Dr.Jeannotte will work with your dentist and/or other dental specialists to achieve an ideal result.
Limited treatment (moving only some of the teeth) is also common in adults. Your dentist may recommend repositioning teeth with orthodontics prior to reconstructive work (crowns, bridges, implants), or to make it easier to access areas between the teeth for cleaning. Adults who have lost supporting bone around their teeth may require treatment by a periodontist (specialist of the gums and supporting bone) before, during and/or after orthodontic treatment.
