Adult Orthodontics

Portland Adult Orthodontics

More and more adults in recent years have been seeking the orthodontic treatment they've needed since childhood.  However, adult orthodontics are significantly different than orthodontics for children/teens, and it's rather important to take note of these differences.  One of these differences being in how orthodontic appliances are bonded to your teeth, as adult orthodontics use dental cement (more specifically, for much less noticeable options, like lingual braces).  This makes strict oral hygiene crucial during treatment.  While the severity of differences can range from patient to patient, it's important to acknowledge these differences before pursuing treatment.
