Who is an Ideal Candidate for Adult Orthodontics?
If you are interested in improving the appearance of your smile and boosting your self-confidence, adult orthodontics may be right for you.
Are you suffering from any of the following conditions?
- Misaligned teeth
- Excessive spacing
Along with increasing your self-esteem in the cosmetic appearance of your smile, adult orthodontics has a myriad of other benefits for your overall health.
Reduces Bad Breath
Misaligned teeth allow for food to become lodged in your teeth, and with crowded or crooked teeth, it can be considerably more difficult to brush your teeth thoroughly. The accumulation of food debris in your mouth leads to the formation of bacteria and plaque, which causes bad breath.
Decreases Your Oral Health Risks
Just as bacteria and plaque can cause bad breath, these harmful entities on your teeth can build up and result in gingivitis. Achieving straight teeth with braces allows you to brush your teeth effectively, which can eliminate the plaque along your gum line, stopping any gum diseases from developing.
With crooked teeth, it can be difficult to chew your food into small pieces. Though this may seem minor, it is much harder for your stomach to digest large pieces of food. By straightening your teeth, you will be able to chew your food adequately, which will significantly help your digestion.
Protruding teeth are much more likely to be injured in the case of a sports injury, car accident, or any kind of trauma. Having perfectly aligned teeth will largely decrease your chances of injuring your teeth.
Corrects Your Speech
Some ways that teeth are misaligned can cause speaking impediments, such as a lisp. Fixing your crooked teeth can enhance your speech and pronunciation.
Adult braces are able to repair all of the above issues, alleviating any discomfort when eating, speaking, or smiling. It is never too late to repair your smile. With more options than ever and with unprecedented low prices, right now is the best time to do so.
Misaligned teeth and bite problems may impact your oral health, self-confidence, and quality of life. Our orthodontists can help you achieve the straight, healthy smile you deserve with a variety of treatment options, including:
These braces are ideal for adults who are looking for a more discreet treatment option. Ceramic braces are made of clear or tooth-colored brackets that blend in with your teeth. They are less visible than metal braces, making them a good choice for adults who are concerned about the appearance of their smiles during treatment.
Invisible Appliances and Invisalign®
For patients looking for an even more discreet treatment option, we offer invisible orthodontic appliances and Invisalign®. These clear aligners are virtually invisible and can be removed for eating, brushing, and flossing making it easy to maintain good oral hygiene during treatment. However, this treatment option isn’t suitable for everyone. Our orthodontists will work with you to determine if it’s the best option for your smile.
If you want a discreet way to achieve a straighter smile, but clear aligners aren’t right for you, lingual braces may be worth considering. Lingual braces are placed on the back of your teeth, making them an excellent choice for adults who want to keep their treatment discreet.
If the appearance of your smile during treatment isn’t a concern, metal braces may be the right choice for you. Metal braces are made of high-quality stainless steel and are often more durable than other treatment options. This makes them a good choice for active adults who may be concerned about breaking their braces.
