How Adults Benefit From Orthodontic Treatment

Orthodontic treatment not only makes your smile more attractive but it also helps improve the overall health of your teeth and gums. Adults who undergo orthodontic treatment can benefit in many ways including:

 

  • Can get a fantastic smile for more self-confidence and better self-esteem
  • Makes it easier to brush & floss your teeth for better oral health
  • Treatment can create a more comfortable bite and improved ability to chew food properly
  • Orthodontic treatment can cut down on excessive wear & tear on teeth due to a poor bite or a teeth grinding habit
  • Can help you avoid tooth decay, bone loss and TMJ pain

Wearing Braces is Definitely Not a “Teen Thing” Anymore

Many years ago, most people assumed that braces were just for teens as it was common to see teenagers with highly visible, bulky metal braces covering their teeth. But things have changed a lot over the past few years, and as of today, people of all ages including older adults are routinely undergoing orthodontic treatment. One reason so many adults are deciding to see orthodontists to improve their smiles is because it's widely known that there are many more treatment options available today than just standard metal braces.

Orthodontic Treatment Options for Adults

Our practice offers several types of orthodontic appliances which are ideal for adults such as clear braces which blend in perfectly with the teeth for discreet treatment and Invisalign which works like braces except there are no metal wires or brackets used. Even the conventional stainless steel braces we use are popular among adults as these modern metal braces are smaller and more attractive than the metal braces used in the past.

We are proud to offer our patients several types of braces because we know every patient is unique with his or her own needs and desires. Some of the most popular orthodontic treatment options adults enjoy wearing include:

  • Invisalign
  • Damon Clear Braces
  • Invisible/Hidden Braces
