Adult Orthodontics Pembroke Pines & Plantation, FL
Many people automatically picture teens with braces when they think of orthodontics. While it’s true that children and teenagers make up a majority of orthodontic patients, it’s also true that adults stand to gain similar benefits by opting for orthodontic treatments. At Jacaranda Smiles, our patient pool is diverse and ranges from the very young to seniors, and everyone in between. Whether you’re looking to finally receive the orthodontic treatment you missed out on as a child, or to fix a more recent problem, our orthodontists have you covered.
Your Orthodontic Appointment at Jacaranda Smiles
We have different orthodontic offerings for adults who visit our dental offices in Plantation and Pembroke Pines, FL. Every dental appointment begins with a thorough consultation during which our dentist will get to the bottom of your unique case. The dentist will rely on you to be open and forthcoming about your expectations as far as the outcome of the treatment goes. Usually, x-rays and digital scans are used to get further insights into your case.
If you’re suffering from teeth misalignment, our dentist may recommend braces. We offer different types of braces for our adult patients, including the traditional metal braces and Invisalign®, for those who want a more discreet option. Lingual braces—or braces placed on the tongue side of teeth—are yet another discreet orthodontic option that allows you to align your teeth without drawing too much attention to yourself.
Are you constrained for time and want to complete your orthodontic treatment in the shortest time possible? Jacaranda Smiles offers AcceleDent® and PROPEL, two FDA-approved orthodontic devices that accelerate orthodontic treatment resulting in speedier results.
Benefits of Orthodontic Treatment for Adults
Navigating adult relationships requires a healthy dose of charm and confidence—two components that might be missing if you’re insecure about your teeth. Jacaranda Smiles promises to give you a smile that you’ll be proud to show off.
Even more critical, malocclusion, or teeth misalignment, can result in temporomandibular joint disorders (TMDs), especially where there’s some difficulty when chewing and speaking. TMDs can be exceptionally painful and often negatively impact a person’s quality of life.
Misaligned teeth are also harder to clean as you may not always reach the crucial spots. As such, you may be at a higher risk for cavities and gum disease if you have misaligned teeth.
The good news is that there’s no age limit for orthodontic treatment. As long as your gums and jaw bone are healthy enough, our orthodontists in Plantation and Pembroke, FL, will work hard to give you a perfect smile
