Orthodontics for adults
Are you concerned about the appearance of your smile because your teeth are not properly aligned? If so, Dr. Emmanuelle Seica and her team may have a solution for you with comprehensive orthodontic services in Blainville.
Too many people think that orthodontics is only for children and teenagers. Adults can also enjoy the benefits of orthodontic treatment on their oral health and the appearance of their smile. Thanks to her training with the Canadian Occlusion Institute and Invisalign training, Dr. Seica is also able to provide orthodontic treatment for adults.
Orthodontics for adults: it is never too late
to have a beautiful smile
Having straight teeth brings to mind the aesthetic advantages of having straight teeth. However, these are not the only benefits of having teeth and jaws that are properly aligned. In fact, there are a variety of benefits that a patient can gain. To understand these benefits, it is important to understand the consequences associated with dental malocclusion problems.
First of all, it is important to know that significant problems with the dental occlusion can lead to functional disorders. Indeed, chewing abilities may be affected. Also, the patient may have speech problems if his or her teeth or jaws are very badly positioned. In some cases, pain in the temporomandibular joints (jaw joints) can occur when the pressure is poorly distributed over the entire jaw.
Secondly, misaligned teeth are generally more difficult to maintain during oral hygiene routine. Brushing and flossing become less effective, which can lead to plaque and tartar build-up. People who have a dental occlusion problem are therefore more at risk of developing problems in their mouth such as cavities or gum disease.

Criteria for orthodontic intervention in adulthood
Most problems with tooth alignment (“crooked” or overlapping teeth) or jaw occlusion (imbalance between the upper and lower jaws) can be treated in adulthood. To do this, it must be determined if:
- The patient’s oral health status. Certain pathologies must be controlled (e.g. gum disease) before starting orthodontic treatment.
- The patient’s general health. Certain health problems may be a contraindication to orthodontic treatment. Our team will be able to provide you with information on this subject.
