Orthodontics in Adults
Orthodontic treatment can be applied at any age, and today, orthodontic treatments applied to adults have become quite common.
A balanced lower-upper jaw relationship and a balanced closure are important both in terms of the continuity of the health of natural teeth and implants, prostheses, etc. It is very important and necessary in terms of the correct application of the treatments and their longevity.
While planning orthodontic treatment in adult patients, if there are skeletal problems of the jawbones (skeletal incompatibility of the lower and upper jaws), orthopedic treatment and orthodontic treatment are planned together. The most commonly applied procedures within the scope of orthopedic treatment are orthognathic surgery applications. In such cases, a plastic surgeon / maxillofacial surgeon and orthodontist can cooperate to correct a severe anomaly together.
