Discover How Braces Have Grown Up

If your teeth don’t make you smile, then orthodontic treatment may help make you happy. Learn how braces for adults can change the way that you look, live, and love your smile.

Benefits of Braces for Adults

Today, orthodontists are helping more adults than ever achieve their goal of a great smile. According to The American Association of Orthodontics, 20% of patients are over age 18. Braces for adults go beyond just straightening teeth by providing the following benefits:

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

Basics of Orthodontics

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.

Today’s Braces are Fashionable

Those old-fashioned metal braces have been replaced by smaller, sleeker styles that offer greater fit and comfort.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.
