FAQ

Adult orthodontics in Centennial is the branch of dentistry that deals with diagnosing, preventing, and treating dental and orofacial irregularities in adults that we can solve with orthodontic appliances.

Adult orthodontics differs from children’s orthodontics. First, adult patients generally have complex dental issues that require the attention of additional specialists. Second, adult patients often have a narrower window to correct their teeth, as bones and tissues change as we age. Finally, adult patients may require more extensive treatment, such as jaw surgery, to achieve desired results.

There are many variables in orthodontic treatment, so it is difficult to give an estimate without a consultation. However, in general, adult orthodontics can range in cost from $3,000 to $6,000.

This is a difficult question since it varies depending on each case. Generally, adults will need to go to the orthodontist’s office every 4-8 weeks for a check-up and verify everything is going according to plan.

There is no one answer to this question as it depends on the individual and their dental situation. Adults who require braces will need to wear them for a minimum of 18 months, but this can be longer or shorter depending on the severity of the issue targeted by your treatment.

Centennial adult orthodontic treatment is effective in correcting dental and jaw irregularities. It can also improve the function and appearance of teeth.

You will need to brush your teeth for two minutes after every meal, using approved toothpaste, to remove plaque and bacteria. You will also need to floss your teeth once a day.
