Correcting Orthodontic Problems in Adults

The correction of orthodontic issues in adults is important because it:

  • Can help prevent or improve periodontal problems
  • Can help prevent or reduce further bone loss around teeth
  • Improves ability of the dentist to restore missing teeth
  • Improves aesthetics for a better smile and facial appearance
  • Improves the function of teeth
  • Improves self-confidence and self-esteem
  • Improves oral health

Malocclusions, some of which are illustrated below, may be improved by orthodontic treatment. Final treatment decisions should be made in consultation with Dr. Wright and if necessary, other specialists.
