Description:
Since the 1960s, there has been a steady increase in the number of adult patients seeking orthodontic treatment. Whilst adults and adolescents may have exactly the same reasons for seeking treatment, the younger patients may not be quite as emotionally involved in the process. Adults should have a better understanding of the treatment processes and usually realistic expectations. However, underlying insecurities about appearance and other psychosocial factors may lead to a complex set of unrecognised and abnormal expectations. Careful consideration has to be given to the reasons for seeking such treatment, especially when the reasons may be improved appearance with the perception that there may be rewards that are unrealistic or unattainable.
