We’ve always said you’re never too old to achieve the beautiful smile you’ve always dreamed of, and thousands of adults have taken that to heart by becoming our orthodontic patients through the years.
With the holiday season upon us, and New Year’s resolutions right around the corner, we know that smile improvements are on many wish lists this month, and among many goals for 2016.
When you have a consultation with Dr. Yan Razdolsky, there are some considerations he must account for that often are unique to adult patients when he develops a treatment plan. They are:
- Past dental work- Crowns, fillings, root canals.
- Growth- We use growing jaws to our advantage when treating children, but since growth is complete in adults, other approaches are required in some cases.
- Periodontal disease- Unmanaged gum disease can be made worse with orthodontic treatment, so we must work with your dentist or periodontist to get the disease under control first.
Please visit our blog for more information on this important topic. This month’s article elaborates on the three considerations listed above, and explains why treatment is beneficial to adults.
