Orthodontist in Warren, MI For Adults

Orthodontist in Warren, MI For Adults


Orthodontics is no longer just for teens. In fact, the American Association of Orthodontists states that 1 out of 5 orthodontic patients is over the age of 21. Many adults are choosing to get treatment because they understand the importance of maintaining their oral health, and they want to feel better about their smile. Adults everywhere are taking advantage of the recent advances in orthodontic treatment, and now you can too. Call the top orthodontist in Warren, MI to schedule your free initial orthodontic consultation.


Common reasons why adults consider orthodontic treatment:


  • A bad bite or “malocclusion”, causing teeth to fit together incorrectly

  • Teeth are crowded or spaced apart, possibly causing tooth decay or gum disease

  • Abnormal jaw pain, or pressure that is caused by crooked teeth

  • Desire for a healthier mouth and a more confident smile

  • Discreet treatment options for adults


For many adults, the thought of getting traditional metal braces is enough to discourage them from ever receiving treatment. However, recent advances in orthodontic treatment options offer a variety of braces and appliances that are comfortable, discreet, and customized to meet your needs. Types of braces include:


  • Clear braces

  • Ceramic braces

  • Self-ligating braces

  • Lingual (behind the tooth) braces

  • Invisible braces (Invisalign)

  • Traditional metal braces

The difference between adult orthodontics and orthodontics for children and teens:


The main difference to keep in mind when treating adults or children and teens, is that in younger patients the jawbones are not yet finished developing. For adults, these bones have matured and stopped growing, which may mean the possibility of surgery to align the jawbones depending on the patient. Other differences include:


  • Gum or bone loss (periodontal disease) — Adults are more likely than children or teens to experience gum recession or even bone loss due to gingivitis or advanced periodontal disease. Patients with straight teeth are far less likely to get gum disease.


  • Worn or missing teeth — Over time teeth can become worn down and shift into different positions that can only be corrected with proper orthodontic care. Missing teeth can cause other teeth to shift, creating a bad bite and increasing the possibility of gum disease.


  • Incomplete orthodontic treatment as a child or teen — Many adults received some orthodontic treatment as a child, but never finished their treatment. As an adult, they may choose to complete their orthodontic treatment to achieve the healthy, beautiful smile they have always wanted. Call Dr. Daniel Gross today to see why he’s the top orthodontist in Warren, Michigan.


Huntington Woods Orthodontics also recognizes that adults and children have different needs, and require a different level of attention and care. Our practice works with you to ensure that you receive the most appropriate treatments, and that your individual needs are met with understanding and respect from us.


Why should you consider orthodontic treatment at Huntington Woods Orthodontics?


  • Straight teeth are healthy teeth — Teeth that are properly aligned are far easier to keep clean with regular flossing and brushing, and may help prevent other serious health problems.


  • A straight smile builds confidence — Orthodontic treatment can help boost your self-confidence, giving you a better quality of life and the independence to smile without holding back!


  • Mouths left untreated can get worse — Not receiving any orthodontic treatment when necessary can create long-term health issues and costing you more in the end.
