Adult Braces – It’s Not Too Late for a Great Smile

Caring for Braces

Although you may think of awkward metal wires and misery when someone suggests straightening your teeth, today’s orthodontists provide braces for kids and adults that can correct your smile without embarrassment. If you usually shy away from the idea of braces, you should check out options like discreet ceramic braces or invisible aligner trays. The many benefits of realigning your smile are worth the investment.

Adult Braces: The Benefits

Straight teeth are easier to brush and floss, so straightening your smile can have a positive impact on your oral health. Getting braces as an adult can reduce your risk of gum disease and tooth decay. If you have a misaligned bite or jaw pain, braces can be an important part of treating those conditions. Having a straighter smile can influence how others see you. A study of people’s reactions to photos of individuals with both straight and crooked teeth showed that people with straight teeth got higher ratings on such attributes as leadership ability, popularity, and even athletic ability.

Adult Braces: What to Expect

Even if you had braces as a kid, your teeth can shift as you age. The length of time adults need to wear braces varies, since it can take longer for adult teeth to move into position than children’s. The duration of most treatments ranges from one to three years. Once your teeth are correctly aligned you will likely need to wear a retainer. Your orthodontist can attach permanent retainers to the backs of your teeth.

Your Smile is Worth the Investment: How to Get Affordable Braces

The cost of orthodontics varies significantly by treatment type, but a good dental plan can cover all or part of orthodontic treatment, making affordable braces a reality. You may be eligible for a discount if you can pay the entire fee up front. If you can’t, talk to your orthodontist about a payment plan.
