As we age, our teeth can shift and move, even if we’ve had braces in the past. This can cause a range of problems, including crooked teeth, crowded teeth, and bite issues. At Tringas Orthodontics, we understand the importance of a straight, healthy smile and offer a range of treatments to address shifting teeth in both adults and those who have had braces before.
Shifting Teeth After Braces
It’s not uncommon for teeth to shift after braces, even if you wore your retainer as instructed. This can happen due to a number of factors, including genetics, changes in jaw structure, and natural aging. However, just because your teeth have shifted doesn’t mean you need to get braces all over again.
At Tringas Orthodontics, we offer a range of options for patients who have had braces before and are experiencing shifting teeth. One popular option is Invisalign, which uses clear, removable aligners to gently shift teeth into place. This treatment is often preferred by adults who don’t want to wear traditional braces again and want a more discreet treatment option.
We also offer traditional braces, which are made of metal brackets and wires. These braces are the most common type of orthodontic treatment and are effective for correcting a wide range of issues, from simple to complex. Although traditional braces may not be as aesthetically pleasing as Invisalign, they are still a great option for those who want a tried-and-true treatment approach.
Another option for shifting teeth is clear braces, which use clear or tooth-colored brackets and wires to move teeth into place. This treatment is similar to traditional braces, but the brackets and wires are much less noticeable, making it a more aesthetically pleasing option for many patients.
Retainers are another treatment option for shifting teeth. A retainer is a custom-made appliance that is worn after orthodontic treatment to help maintain the position of your teeth. We offer both removable and fixed retainers to suit the needs of each individual patient.
Shifting Teeth as We Age
Even if you’ve never had braces before, your teeth can still shift as you get older. This can happen due to a variety of reasons, including changes in your jaw structure, grinding or clenching your teeth, and even gum disease. If you’re experiencing shifting teeth, it’s important to address the issue as soon as possible to prevent further problems.
At Tringas Orthodontics, we offer a range of treatments for shifting teeth in adults. If you’re experiencing shifting teeth due to gum disease, it’s important to address the underlying issue as well. Our team of experienced orthodontists can work with your general dentist to ensure that your overall oral health is taken care of, in addition to addressing your shifting teeth.
