Reasons to Get Braces as an Adult
Nothing gives a person more confidence than a healthy, beautiful smile that lights up a room. But many adults aren’t happy with their smiles. Are you?
Maybe you never had orthodontic treatment as a kid and your teeth have always bothered you. Or maybe you did have braces, but your teeth have shifted over time and don’t look the way they used to. No matter the reason, it’s never too late to achieve your most perfect smile – at any age.
 

Here are some reasons to try orthodontics:

Adult braces are more common than you think!
We have a lot of adult patients who come to our office to correct common orthodontic concerns like crowding, underbite, overbite, crooked teeth, and other orthodontic concerns. There’s no such thing as being too old for orthodontic treatment, especially if it helps you have a healthier, more beautiful smile.
 
Lots of Subtle Treatment Options
The appearance of braces is a major reason many adults avoid orthodontic treatment, but with today’s technology, several options can help you achieve a look that you are comfortable with during treatment. Some options are virtually invisible! Don’t worry about being a “metal mouth.” Talk to our doctors about treatment options like clear aligner trays (Invisalign), clear ceramic braces, or incognito hidden braces.
 
Health Benefits Beyond Looks
In addition to being more aesthetically pleasing, braces offer many health benefits such as:
  • Helping to prevent tooth decay and gum disease
  • Potentially helping to correct speech difficulties
  • Aiding in digestion by allowing food to be more properly chewed
  • Preventing future dental issues from tooth decay to bone erosion
 
Treatment Time May Not Be as Long as You Think
“How long will I have to wear braces?” This is one of the most common questions we hear from patients of all ages, but especially adults. The fear of having to wear braces for several years is enough to make some adults avoid it altogether. There is good news – with today’s technology, we can achieve the results you want in the shortest amount of time possible. Every patient is different, but don’t let worrying about treatment time keep you from at least finding out what your options are.
