Braces Aren’t Just for Teenagers
According to the AAO, 20% of all orthodontic patients in America are more than 21 years of age. While traditionally, braces were seen as a dental treatment that only teenagers underwent, today’s patients are realizing that adults have options, too.
Benefits of Orthodontic Treatment
No matter your age, straighter teeth provide multiple benefits for your oral health as well as your personal well-being. For adults, the advantages are even greater. They include:
- Enhanced appearance & smile
- Increased oral health
- Improved self-confidence
- 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
Available Treatment Options for Adults
If the idea of wearing metal braces is keeping you from a beautiful set of teeth, then you’ll be glad to know that advancements in modern orthodontics mean you now have multiple options. In addition to traditional metal and gold braces, we offer both options below for adults who prefer a more discreet treatment method.
Invisalign – uses a series of virtually-invisible clear aligner trays to move your teeth into their optimal position. The treatment result is equal to traditional braces and is typically acheved in less time.
Clear Braces – designed to work just like traditional metal braces, but they are made with clear or tooth-colored pieces that fit on your teeth so that the braces are nearly undetectable.
