Why a Wichita Dentist may suggest Braces For Adults

While it is common for children and teenagers to have orthodontic work done, many patients may ask when it is appropriate to have braces for adults placed. At East Wichita Dentist, we offer Invisalign, a method of realigning the teeth with clear aligner trays. This is a wonderful alternative to traditional braces, and can help in many instances.

The dentist at East Wichita Dentist may suggest children or adults undergo orthodontic treatment for a variety of reasons. Most patients believe that orthodontic treatment is cosmetic. While it can be, there are many benefits of having teeth realigned when necessary.

Orthodontic treatment can realign the teeth and bite to make it easier to eat and more effective for chewing, biting, and speaking. Having the top and bottom dental arches align themselves is best. It can avoid patients biting the inside of their cheek or their tongue while eating.

Realigning the teeth can help with one’s periodontal health. When teeth are straight, it is easier to brush and floss them to avoid the development of plaque, tartar, and bacteria. This results in better oral health, and can provide patients with a beautiful smile for many years!

Patients who are experiencing any of these signs or symptoms may want to consider the benefits of orthodontic treatment:
  • Difficulty biting and chewing
  • Teeth protruding from the dental arch
  • Asymmetry of the face / proportion
  • Bad oral habits such as thumb sucking
  • Jaws that click or protrude
  • Uneven bite
  • Crowded teeth
When patients are encouraged to undergo orthodontic treatment, many think of traditional metal bracket and wire braces. Thanks to dental advances, patients can enjoy Invisalign treatment for many of their orthodontic needs. Invisalign uses aligner trays to move teeth to improve the bite and tooth alignment of a dental arch. They are worn at all times, but are discreet and easily disguised in a patient’s smile.

At East Wichita Dentist in Wichita, KS, we provide braces for adults and teenagers. We encourage patients to visit our practice for a consultation appointment to find out if methods such as Invisalign will work in improving their smile. Call us today to schedule an examination and consultation to determine if braces can improve the functionality and beauty of your smile.

    Such an amazing dental office! The staff is so nice and welcoming. I felt right at home. They used sedation dentistry on me and it took all the fear from me and it didn't even hurt. I have never met a dental office that is so easy to talk to! Love them
