Why Orthodontists Say That You’re Never Too Old for Braces

Have you lived too long with crooked teeth or a bad bite? Give yourself a new look and a new lease on life by getting orthodontic treatment.

The Beauty of Braces for Adults

While many think that braces are only worn during childhood, orthodontists are treating a growing number of adults. According to The American Association of Orthodontics, 20% of patients are over age 18. Orthodontic treatment goes beyond just straightening teeth by providing the following benefits:

  • More self-confidence
  • More attractive appearance
  • Greater professional and social success
  • Better speech
  • Improved chewing and swallowing
  • Less pain in the face and jaw
  • Improved dental health

The Basics of Braces

Orthodontics works by placing appliances onto the teeth that apply gentle pressure to adjust their position. Braces are the most common dental appliances because they let teeth move in different directions while treating many teeth at once. Orthodontists can place braces on the teeth in under two hours, but they may require ongoing adjustment to ensure a comfortable fit. To find the best orthodontist for you, ask your dentist for recommendations.

Braces are Better Than Ever

The metal braces of long ago have replaced by smaller, sleeker styles that offer greater fit and comfort. And with new options in clear plastic or tooth-colored enamel, they’re less noticeable than ever. But if you want to make braces fashionable, choose the brightly colored elastics and wires that are popular with teens. As you can see, braces are no longer seen as a burden, just a way to improve your look and your life. Simply find the best orthodontist for you and get the smile you deserve.
