Orthodontic treatments for adults can be a game-changer, offering successful results at any age. In fact, statistics reveal that in the United States alone, one out of every five patients seeking orthodontic treatment is over 21 years old. The motivations behind adult orthodontics are diverse and unique to each individual. Some adults may opt for treatment due to aesthetic concerns, while others may seek orthodontic care to alleviate discomfort while chewing or relieve pain caused by misalignment issues.
It's important to note that since an adult's teeth and jaws have finished growing, specialized considerations that don't apply to children come into play during the treatment process. As such, your journey towards a healthier smile will likely involve a collaborative team approach. Dr. Benson will serve as the architect of your dental plan throughout this transformative experience while also overseeing its implementation with meticulous attention to detail.
However, what sets our office apart from others is our commitment to seamless communication and coordination with other dental professionals involved in your care - whether it be your dentist, periodontist, oral surgeon, or any other specialist required along the way. This comprehensive collaboration ensures that you receive exceptional tailored treatment catered specifically for adults - a service not commonly found within many offices.
It's worth mentioning that not all dental offices cater to adult orthodontic treatments due to the advanced nature of these procedures and the coordination required among various practitioners. However, our office stands out from the rest; we see more than 50% of adults on a regular basis and have built strong relationships within our referral base who appreciate the extra effort we put forth for adult treatments.
If you're considering improving your smile or addressing any concerns related to your teeth or jaw as an adult, visit Benson Orthodontics.
Orthodontic treatments for children can be a delicate process, and Dr. Benson, with his vast experience in adult cases, brings a unique perspective to pediatric treatment. It is not uncommon for some adults who had previous orthodontic treatment as children to express dissatisfaction with the results over time. Often, the underlying cause can be traced back to neglecting their retainer or choices made by their previous orthodontist, who did not consider their growth pattern adequately. However, at our practice, we strive to proactively address potential issues through Dr. Benson's expertise in adult treatment and advanced computer growth indicators.
By utilizing specialized software, Dr. Benson can precisely measure and predict a child's growth trajectory more accurately than ever before. Nevertheless, it is important to acknowledge that the human body does not always behave predictably. Fortunately, Dr. Benson's diagnostic skills enable him to identify any potential deviations from the expected path early on. In such cases where there may be uncertainties or irregularities in a child's growth pattern detected during diagnosis, parents are fully informed of the benefits of proceeding with immediate treatment or waiting until a later stage when a more predictable growth pattern can be achieved.
It becomes evident that orthodontic treatments for children encompass far more than simply applying braces on the first day of consultation alone; there are immense considerations involved that go beyond aesthetics and immediate results. Our commitment lies in providing comprehensive care while taking into account each individual patient's unique circumstances and ensuring optimal long-term outcomes for every child we treat here.
