Braces for Adults
According to the AAO, 20% of all orthodontic patients in America are over 21 years old. Traditionally, braces were seen as a treatment only for teenagers, but today’s patients are realizing that adults have options, too.
What Are The Benefits of Orthodontic Treatment?
No matter your age, when you straighten your teeth it provides numerous benefits for your oral health as well as your personal well-being. For adults, the advantages are even greater. They include:
- Prevention of oral health issues like gum disease and tooth decay
- Prevention of bone loss caused by improperly positioned teeth
- Improved ability to bite and chew
- Enhanced appearance & smile
- Increased oral health
- Enhanced self-confidence
What Are Some Treatment Options for Adults?
If the idea of wearing metal braces is keeping you from your ideal smile, then you’ll be glad to know that there have been many advancements in modern orthodontics. In addition to traditional metal and gold braces, we offer both options below for adults who prefer a more discreet treatment method.
Invisalign – this option uses a series of virtually-invisible clear aligner trays to move your teeth into their proper position. The treatment result is the same as traditional braces and is generally achieved in less time.
Clear Braces – these braces function just like traditional metal braces, but they are made with clear or tooth-colored brackets that blend with your teeth so that the braces are nearly undetectable.
