Orthodontics is efficient at any age. More and more adults enjoy recovering a nice smile and are concerned about preserving their dental capital, and not letting their teeth drift into malalignment.
The possibility of discrete treatments, almost invisible, makes orthodontics more attractive.
Treatments length is the same as for children: 18 months on average. Since there’s no more growth, it is often necessary for adults to have extractions or surgery.
Some adults lost teeth, or their bone has been weakened: they’ll have to go through periodontal treatment before, during and after orthodontic treatment. The bone loss can also limit the quantity and direction of movements.
