If you are an adult with crooked teeth or an overbite or underbite, you may be thinking about getting braces or learning more about Invisalign®. There are many advantages to getting braces as an adult, not the least of which is discovering your perfect smile! Don’t let imperfectly aligned teeth hold you back anymore: it’s time to find out more about adult braces.
Getting braces as an adult may be even easier than having them as a teen, as you are likely more responsible and able to manage the adjustments that are necessary when you have braces. Meeting with an orthodontist is the first step on your journey to straight teeth as an adult. During this appointment, we will review your options and determine which will be most effective for your unique situation.
Advantages of Adult Braces
As we age, our teeth may slowly move, causing a misalignment in our mouths that can affect our jaws and teeth. However, if you have always had alignment issues that were not corrected in your teenage years, you may begin to feel the results of this condition more as you become older. Getting adult braces can help you to overcome these issues, and because the problems are corrected when you are an adult, they are less likely to reoccur.
Don’t Let Your Crooked Teeth Hold You Back Any Longer
Our smiles are how we greet the world, and if you are self-conscious about your teeth, it can cause you to smile less frequently. There is no reason for you to not get braces as an adult and finally have the smile that you have always dreamed of! If the idea of having a mouth full of metal during your middle-aged years doesn’t appeal to you, Invisalign® may be a more appropriate option for adult braces. Either way, there are multiple effective options for correcting your teeth no matter your age.
