Straight Talk about Braces for Adults

dca-blog-272-mix-of-leftover-articles_1200x630

If you think braces are only child’s play, think again. Today, orthodontists report that 20 percent of their patients are adults. If you’ve suffered too long with dental problems, see how braces can make life so much better.

The Many Benefits of Braces

Orthodontists are treating more adults than ever as people are realizing the power and pleasure of a great-looking smile. It’s become common to see braces for adults since they offer so many advantages, including:

  • Greater self-confidence
  • More career opportunities
  • Increased comfort
  • Better social life
  • Improved chewing ability
  • Reduced risk of tooth decay since misaligned teeth are harder to clean, making them more prone to disease and decay

When Braces are the Right Choice

Orthodontists agree that braces are right at any age. But certain factors affect the decision of braces for adults, such as the person’s current dental health, their overall health, and the dental problem in need of repair. Yet even the best orthodontist cannot provide treatment when certain diseases or drugs would complicate care, such as periodontal disease, leukemia, severe heart-valve disease, uncontrolled diabetes, bleeding disorders, leukemia, or when the patient is taking certain medications for arthritis or osteoporosis.

How Braces Have Improved

Braces have grown up over the years and today’s orthodontic appliances are less noticeable and more comfortable than ever before. New orthodontic options that make braces for adults even more attractive include virtually invisible clear aligners, clear braces, and braces that are attached to the backs of teeth. To find the best orthodontist near you, ask your dentist and your friends for recommendations and discover the joy of a better smile.
