Invisalign for Lancaster County Adults
At LOA Orthodontics, we have seen in the last decade our percentage of adults in treatment rise from 5% of our total patients to 20%! Reasons for this increase include better awareness of the connection between our oral health and our overall health. Crooked teeth that do not fit together well make oral hygiene more difficult and with time, this can lead to tooth decay, gum disease, tooth wear and even tooth loss. Bite and TMJ issues can also cause jaw pain, as well as head and neck discomfort which can negatively impact physical and emotional overall well-being.
Some adults have had orthodontic treatment as children or teens but either did not complete it, or stopped wearing their retainers as directed afterwards, resulting in the teeth shifting back to their previous positions. Others might desire all the wonderful benefits of orthodontic treatment, to achieve the straight and healthy smile they’ve always wanted. Whatever your reason for seeking orthodontic treatment, it’s never too late to have a fantastic #LOAinvisalignsmile and for most adults, Invisalign is clearly (haha) the better choice compared to braces.
