If you didn’t have braces as a kid or a teenager, you may decide that various forms of adult orthodontics can give you the confidence and the smile you’ve always wanted. As adult orthodontic treatment becomes increasingly more popular, more options are available for those who want a straight, healthy smile and the confidence boost that comes with it.

Benefits of Straight Teeth

While the aesthetic benefits are the first thing that most adults think about when they meet with an orthodontist in Riverview, FL, there are other long-term oral health benefits that can make all the difference in quality of life. There are times when you simply can’t let your orthodontic or dental problems go without treatment, as the following health problems are often associated with overcrowding, underbites or overbites, incorrect jaw position, crooked teeth and jaw joint disorders.

  • Jaw pain
  • Earaches
  • Headaches
  • Problems with biting, speaking or chewing
  • Gastrointestinal problems associated with improperly chewed food
  • Bone and gum erosion
  • Increased risks of periodontal disease and tooth decay
  • Facial pain
  • Wear on the tooth enamel
  • Food and plaque accumulation between teeth caused by trouble with cleaning the teeth extensively
  • Temporomandibular joint disorders

Adult Orthodontic Options

To correct these problems or simply to help you enjoy your smile again, Dr. Ahrens offers a variety of orthodontic appliances to straighten your teeth.

  • Traditional braces
  • Invisalign

We believe it’s never too late to improve your bite or your smile and to enjoy the many benefits that come from straight teeth.
