Five Differences between Adult Correction and Children Correction
With the development of Orthodontics in recent years, more and more adults are seeking orthodontic treatment to solve the tooth problems they have experienced since childhood. However, there are significant differences between adult correction and children and adolescents. Before making a decision, we should have a clear understanding of adult orthodontics. Most adults are also treated for the following reasons:
Bent or misaligned teeth may affect occlusion and may cause excessive tooth wear, jawbone problems, or even tooth loss.
Too small oral space can lead to tooth crowding, while too large oral space can lead to gaps between teeth.
Many people don’t like their smiles. They prefer teeth that look more regular or even.
The following are the key differences between adults and youth on the hoop teeth:
- Age related considerations
Compared with younger people, most adults are in the following conditions, such as insufficient blood supply at the root of teeth, mild gingivitis or loss of bone at the edge of gums, stiffer and no longer growing bones, tissue aging, which makes teeth take longer to adapt to new positions Because of these physical limitations, adults often experience more pain in the process and take longer to correct their teeth to achieve the desired results.
- Correction of occlusion
One of the main reasons that adults need orthodontic treatment is malocclusion. The mouth of adult patients with malocclusion usually does not have enough space for the normal growth of teeth. In order to move the teeth to the ideal position again, most of them also need to remove one or several teeth. In addition, the patient may have worn some teeth in adulthood, which may make the malocclusion more serious. For adult patients, orthodontists usually focus on responding to normal occlusion as much as possible, rather than achieving perfect teeth.
- Tooth extraction
Many adults have pulled out one or more teeth in the past. The position of the extracted teeth may not be suitable for orthodontic treatment, which may cause problems for orthodontic treatment.
- Fragile teeth
Adults who received orthodontic treatment had a higher chance of root resorption than children. If your body reabsorbs the roots of your teeth, they will lose support. In addition to age, family history, oral habits and root types are also the factors of root resorption. If your root is easily absorbed, and the friction of the root will be increased in the process of tooth correction, the teeth may become loose or even fall off with the time of tooth correction. By examining the teeth carefully, the doctor can observe the signs of absorption. But if we can’t find it early, the problem of root resorption will not be reversed.
- Social and psychological factors
There are some psychological and social factors that will prevent adults from doing orthodontic treatment. For example, adults have higher requirements in the following aspects:
Higher treatment expectations, more attention to the appearance, more attention to the discomfort caused by wearing the braces, more reluctant to follow the instructions of the orthodontist, the adults receiving orthodontic treatment obviously want to achieve the best effect in the shortest time and the lowest discomfort. They also want to know more about what they are doing, why they are doing it, and try to find out more about the cost of treatment.
The choice of correction teeth for adults
When you consult a dentist, you can ask him about various options for correcting his teeth as an adult. Whether you choose a more powerful traditional metal hoop or a detachable transparent hoop, you will always find a tooth straightening method suitable for your lifestyle.
You need to wear detachable transparent braces during the day and night. You can remove the braces at any time in case of business meetings or special occasions. The dentist will make a dental mold for the person who chooses the transparent braces. According to your teeth, you need to specially make multiple transparent braces.
