Orthodontic treatment can be successful at any age and adults especially appreciate the benefits of a beautiful smile. One of every five patients in orthodontic treatment is over 21. Adult orthodontics often requires a team approach with other dental specialists. A periodontist or general dentist must confirm that the gums and the bone surrounding the teeth are healthy before braces can begin. For patients who have experienced loss of gum tissue or bone around their teeth, periodontal treatment either before, during or after braces may be needed. During orthodontics treatment all patients require regular dental checkups to monitor their gums and teeth. For patients with missing or worn down teeth, the oral surgeon or periodontist may provide implants and the general dentist may bond or veneer teeth after successful orthodontic treatment.
