Orthodontic Evaluations for Adults
Orthodontic treatment for adults is a slightly different than treatment for children and teens, but not much! A full evaluation takes place before orthodontic treatment begins. This is to examine, address, and control issues more common to adults including:
- Periodontal disease
- Jaw disorders such as TMD (temporomandibular disorder)
- Gum recession
- Missing, broken, or excessively worn teeth
Other doctors and dental specialists may need to join in on a team effort for specific treatment. These issues rarely stop orthodontic treatment from being the very best option! These evaluations are important to make sure your results will be exceptional.
