Explore Adult Braces Options in West Chester
Orthodontic treatment is not just for kids. Many adults find themselves in need of orthodontic treatment, and for those in the West Chester, Ohio area, Empire Dental Specialty Group is here to help. Dr. Rush Davidson and his team of orthodontic experts have helped patients from the Northern Cincinnati area explore options of clear aligners and adult braces for straighter, healthier teeth.
Why Adult Braces?
We have treated adult patients in our West Chester office for years, patients who are seeking straighter teeth for the first time in their life. Many people notice the teeth appearing more crooked in adulthood, which is due to the natural crowding of teeth that occurs with aging.
Other West Chester patients had orthodontic treatment in their earlier years, but then they experienced a relapse. The teeth returned to crowded or spaced conditions. This can result from not wearing retainers, wearing ineffective retainers (they do wear out over time), nighttime grinding habits, or as a natural part of the aging process.
What Problems Can Adult Braces Correct?
Orthodontic treatment can correct any problem of the positioning of the teeth. We can straighten teeth that are crooked or overlapped. We can close gaps or spaces between the teeth. The approach we use when treating crooked or crowded teeth of our West Chester braces patients is to reposition the teeth into a natural arch that is both beautiful and healthy. With traditional adult braces or Invisalign therapy, we can correct the following orthodontic issues:
- Crooked or crowded teeth
- Rotated and overlapped teeth
- Gapped or spaced teeth
- Deep overbite – a condition in which the lower teeth are not visible and completely covered by the upper teeth when you smile
- Underbite - a condition in which the lower front teeth cover the upper teeth
- Crossbite – a condition in which a lower tooth or teeth overlaps the uppers
Aren’t Braces Just Cosmetic?
No. We get this question from candidates for adult braces in our West Chester office.
Braces reposition the teeth for both optimum esthetics and optimum dental health. Straight teeth are less likely to get cavities and gum disease than crowded teeth because they are easier to keep clean.
Research studies have shown that the types of bacteria collecting in dental plaque on straight teeth versus crooked teeth are different. The bacteria that collect on crooked teeth are more likely to cause gum disease!
