At Cordes Orthodontics, we want adults in Westfield, Enfield, and Suffield to know that it’s never too late for them to have the beautifully straight smiles they deserve. Up to one-fifth of all orthodontic patients are adults in the US, and we’re able to offer a number of treatments specifically designed to help people without altering their day-to-day appearance. Whether you’re hoping to increase your confidence, improve your oral function, or both, you can trust that Dr. Cordes will have you covered!
Needless to say, a child’s teeth are much different than those of a full-grown adult. Typically, orthodontics is recommended for younger patients because the bones of the mouth and jaw are still growing and haven’t fully set yet, meaning they can be more easily guided with treatment. Because an adult’s bone structure is harder and stronger, orthodontic care is usually a slower process, but this doesn’t mean it’s any less successful. While it may take a little longer to shift the teeth, Dr. Cordes can definitely put them where they need to go. Plus, for specific issues like complex bite misalignments, corrective jaw surgery may be the only solution, which Dr. Cordes can discuss with you as well.
Which one of these would be best for you? Dr. Cordes would be more than happy to answer all of your questions and let you know what to expect during your treatment at a one-on-one consultation. To get in touch with our office, call today!
