Can Teeth be Straightened as An Adult?
Healthy teeth can be straightened at any time and any age. Complications faced by adults such as misalignment, gaps, overbites and underbites are still treatable. Clear aligners from EZ SMILE offer a discrete treatment method for adults who are wanting to straighten their smile. It is important to note that direct to consumer clear aligner treatments are ideal for individuals with moderate misalignment issues.
What Causes Teeth to Shift in Adults?
Teeth continue to move throughout our lives, even throughout our adulthood. Some of the most common factors that cause teeth to shift in adults are jawbone growth, periodontitis, bruxism, extractions, and general pressures. As the jaw continues to grow forward and become narrower as we age, our lower teeth may become more crowded. Persistent gum disease or periodontitis, causes gums to recede and loss in the bone structure supporting your teeth, causing them to shift. Nocturnal bruxism (teeth grinding) can wear away the tooth structure and in some circumstances, cause teeth to shift. After a tooth or teeth have been extracted, the surrounding teeth will generally start shifting over time, however, this is often not the case with wisdom tooth extractions. As well as all these factors, daily general pressures such as talking, eating, and breathing exert pressure on our teeth, causing them to slightly shift naturally throughout our life.
