The average American eats almost a ton of food each year. You’re reading that right. One ton. Not “I ate, like, a ton of food,” but an actual ton, according to research from the U.S. Department of Agriculture. That’s a lot of meals, a lot of chewing, and a lot of wear and tear on our teeth. So, it only stands to reason that over the years, our teeth will age as our bodies age.
The orthodontic specialists at Carroll Gardens Orthodontics treat many adult patients and keep close watch on the telltale signs of changes that occur to their bite, their teeth, and their smile. We can help our patients achieve the healthy, radiant smile they desire at any age. Our state-of-the-art facility offers the latest treatments and materials, and our staff is dedicated to providing comfort and care that are simply unsurpassed. Nearly one in four adults undergo orthodontic treatment each year; our treatments aren’t just for kids!
One of the common signs we watch out for is a malocclusion, or bite problem, which occurs when the top and bottom jaw are not aligned. This can be the cause of headaches, grinding teeth and popping or clicking jaw joints. Another is a diastema, or a space between the front teeth. Crowding of the bottom teeth can occur for a variety of reasons, including a loss of jaw bone density over time. And even people who have had orthodontic treatment in the past may need a retainer to keep their teeth in proper position.
No matter your age, the orthodontic specialists at Carroll Gardens Orthodontics can bring a smile to your face that you’ll be proud to show the world. We have the expertise and technology to produce results that are the gold standard of our industry. Please don’t hesitate to contact our office today to arrange an appointment.
