Transform Your Grown – Up Smile with Adult Braces

Caring for Braces

You’re probably familiar with the idea of braces for kids, but did you know that adults can also benefit from orthodontics? It’s not too late to get a great smile, and today’s options can give you one without all the embarrassment. Modern orthodontic treatments include clear ceramic braces, invisible tooth aligner trays, and brackets that attach discreetly to the back of your teeth to hold wires in place. With a little help from a family orthodontics expert, you’ll soon have a new smile to help you look and feel your best.

The Benefits of Adult Braces

Straightening your smile can have a positive impact on your oral health. Straight teeth are easier to brush and floss, so wearing braces as an adult can reduce your risk of gum disease and tooth decay. If you have a misaligned bite or jaw pain, braces can help to treat those conditions. Having a straighter smile can influence how others see you. A study of people’s reactions to photos of people with both straight and crooked teeth showed that those with straight teeth received higher ratings on attributes such as leadership, popularity, and even athletic ability.

What to Expect with Adult Braces

Your teeth can shift during your lifetime, even if you had braces as a kid. Since it can take longer for adult teeth to move into position than children’s, the length of time adults need to wear braces ranges from one to three years. Once your teeth are aligned, you will probably need to wear a retainer. Your orthodontist can attach permanent retainers to the backs of your teeth.

How to Get Affordable Braces

The cost of orthodontics varies significantly by treatment type, but a good dental plan can cover all or part of orthodontic treatment, making affordable braces a reality. You may even receive a discount if you can pay the entire orthodontics fee up front. Or, talk to your orthodontist about a payment plan. Your smile is worth the investment.
