Braces and glasses may be part of growing up, but just because you aren’t a kid doesn’t mean you don’t deserve white straight teeth!
Thanks to Texas Association of Orthodontists for this sponsored reminder!
Braces aren’t just for the kids anymore.
Adults are just as likely to either repeat their braces treatment or finally have the opportunity to get braces on their teeth during their 30s or 40s.
But it doesn’t matter how old you are – everyone deserves a beautiful smile with white straight teeth!
Your smile is one of the biggest confidence boosters and something that anyone can see. If an adult is self-conscious about their smile, orthodontic treatment can provide them with the same benefits younger patients enjoy. Less visible orthodontic materials have made adult orthodontic treatment increasingly popular in recent years.
According to a survey by the American Association of Orthodontists (AAO), adult patients grew by 14% from 2010 to 2012.
There is also the risk that some malocclusions (bad bites) may get worse if left untreated. If treatment is recommended, there are a number of options available today that make it less noticeable than it was in the past.
Fortunately with today’s technology, the materials orthodontists use to move teeth can be almost imperceptible. As specialists, orthodontists are able to use the full array of “appliances” (the formal name for braces, aligners, etc.) to create a healthy and beautiful smile. These include traditional metal braces with small, sleek brackets and thin wires; ceramic (tooth-colored) braces; braces that go behind the teeth; self-ligating braces, which have a built-in mechanism to hold the wire to the brackets; and clear aligners.
Thankfully, having braces doesn’t have to be a multi-year obligation. The average time between orthodontic appointments is about six weeks, so you miss less time from work and other important commitments and don’t need to be embarrassed about having braces or having a smile they don’t like.
