Orthodontics for Adults versus Orthodontics for Youth
A large difference between orthodontic work for adults and children or teens is the status of the jawbone. We are able to more easily manipulate a younger teens jaw as it is still growing. An adult's jawbone is grown. This may mean that we need to surgically alter the positioning of their jaw through orthognathic surgery to align the jawbones.
Other differences include preparatory work. We may need to deal with gum disease, or missing teeth, or other restoration work before proceeding with the orthodontic process.
At Dr. Dumore & Team Orthodontics, we recognize that adults and children have different needs, and require different styles of attention and care. Our team will work with you to ensure you receive the appropriate treatments and options, we want your needs to be met with understanding and respect from us.
