Our Calgary orthodontic staff loves youngsters, and as you probably saw from our office decor, we are still kids at heart. However, there are some advantages of starting orthontic treatment as an adult.
First of all, adults tend to be more compliant in their treatment. They tend to follow Dr. Antosz’s directions more fully, and this can make a big, favorable difference in the outcome of their Calgary orthodontic work.
Adults tend to wear their appliances and elastic bands as instructed, and this can help the teeth to move into their proper position at a quicker rate. Adults tend to follow the rules of good oral hygiene. While this is important at any age, it is especially important during orthodontic treatment.
Overall, adults are better patients, which can make a significant difference in the results.
