The majority of adult patients seeking orthodontic treatment are getting “braces” for the first time. Their primary reason for doing so is to correct crooked teeth that are preventing them from displaying the “picture-perfect” smile that garners attention on Facebook and helps promote advancement at work. Others are compelled by pain, discomfort, or dysfunction to seek treatment. Teeth that are crowded, excessively spaced, or misaligned often wear unevenly and may be prone to becoming loose and falling out. Misaligned teeth may also trigger headache, jaw pain, and difficulty in cleaning and maintaining the teeth, which often leads to tooth decay and gum disease. Correcting these problems may determine whether adults will have the teeth needed to eat, never mind smile.
