Orthodontics are for adults too.
Oct 12 2016 By Dr. Nizar Ishaq
Most of us know children who have had an orthodontic treatment or those who are currently straightening their teeth with fixed braces, but did you know that orthodontics is an increasingly popular choice for adults too?
Huge changes in the development of orthodontic treatment means we’re able to treat a range of orthodontic problems using discreet methods that enable you to maintain great oral hygiene throughout your treatment plan.
If your teeth are misaligned or if you have a cross-bite, you may have started to notice uneven wear on your teeth from where they are biting together. Over time, this can lead to problems with bone loss, dysfunctional chewing patterns, TMD and impact on speech. Straightening your teeth can alleviate this contact pressure, helping you maintain the health and appearance of your natural teeth.
People with crooked or crowded teeth may find it a little difficult to floss between their teeth, and this can lead to plaque buildup in certain areas, resulting in dental caries. Straighter teeth not only look great, but they work wonders for your confidence, giving you that extra boost. Invisible orthodontics, such as Invisalign, allows you to straighten your teeth with a series of clear removable aligners, so you can comfortably straighten your teeth without anybody even knowing you’re wearing dental braces.
A recent patient testimonial and photo from Clair says it all - “Hi everyone. I had Invisalign braces in 2015. A colleague who had undergone this process with Dr. Nizar referred me to him. The whole experience from start to finish was amazing and I am so happy. I got married last year and always wanted the perfect smile and with the help of Dr. Nizar this was possible. The process was very straightforward and the care and treatment throughout was first-class. I can’t recommend Invisalign and Dr. Nizar enough. I am so happy with the end result!”
