Adult Orthodontic Treatment

Braces aren't just for kids anymore! Adult braces and orthodontic treatment is becoming a growing trend and Dr. Charbonnet offers a variety of treatments that are designed for different age groups-including adults. Maybe as a child, someone was not able to have orthodontic treatment for one reason or another. Or maybe, as you grew older, you lost some teeth or had other problems that changed the shape of your bite or the alignment of your teeth. Or maybe, as an adult, you are more concerned about the esthetic quality of your smile.

No matter the reason, orthodontic treatment can be worthwhile for adults. Not just for esthetic reasons, but there are health benefits involved as well. Adult orthodontic treatment can dramatically improve one's personal appearance and self-esteem. Improving the health of your teeth and gums is equally important. Crooked teeth and a bad bite can contribute to gum and bone loss, tooth decay, abnormal wear of the tooth enamel and surfaces, headaches and jaw joint (TMJ/TMD) pain. Also, remember that chewing is the first part of digestion. If you do not chew your food properly, the rest of you digestive system will have to work harder. The harder you digestive system works, the faster it ages.

Adult orthodontic treatment can prevent premature aging of your digestive system. As you are investigating and deciding whether to pursue adult orthodontic treatment, you will first need to schedule a consultation with your orthodontist. Consultations are a great for asking questions about orthodontics and braces, voice any concerns or fears you may have about braces, and get a rough estimate of the cost associated with braces and adult orthodontic treatment. Dr. Charbonnet and Louisiana Orthodontic Specialists offer complimentary consultations. Call us today to schedule yours. It's never too late to get the smile you've always wanted!
