Aren’t orthodontics in Navan just for children?

Tuesday, 16th June, 2020

You would be mistaken in believing that orthodontist in Navan was a treatment option just designed for children and young adults. Although it is common for treatment to be available for this group, this is because swift action is needed in many cases to allow for a good quality of life with straighter teeth and a correct bite. 

It is often that children receive orthodontist in Navan appointments when they are about 7 years of age, giving the professional an understanding of their natural bite and position of teeth, to determine whether treatment is needed. If it is, then the sooner braces can be applied the better, so that the treatment time can be reduced and the child in question can enjoy more time with a healthier smile. 

Incorrect bites can result in speech and eating issues, as can twisted teeth. Alleviating these problems is important for a good quality of life. 

In some instances in the past the issue may not have been severe enough to warrant treatment, perhaps because it may have been a simple cosmetic issue or because funding was not provided at the time. Whatever the reason, there are a vast number of adults who need corrective treatment to perfect their smile for their self-esteem and their health, who never benefited from orthodontics when younger.

Unfortunately, teeth will continue to twist and cross over as you age and even if you remove some teeth over time and think this may make some room in your mouth, it rarely makes the significant positive impact that one is hoping for, but can cause further complications. 

There are rare instances in which a dentist will remove teeth to make space, but this is an orthodontist in Navan technique and needs to be well planned and thought out.
