Braces for Adults – A Reason to Smile

Caring for Braces

If you think braces for kids are great, wait until you see how today’s orthodontics can help adults look and feel their best. With advanced options, you can expect a less obvious and more comfortable treatment plan. If your smile isn’t as straight as you want it to be, consider scheduling a visit with an orthodontist to discuss discreet options such as natural-looking ceramic braces, tooth brackets that attach to the backs of your teeth, and custom invisible plastic aligners.

Benefits of Adult Braces

Your smile affects your life in many ways. Having a straighter smile can actually influence how others see you. A study of participants’ reactions to photos of both straight and crooked teeth suggested that people with straight teeth got higher ratings on attributes like leadership capacity, popularity, and even athletic ability. Straight teeth are also easier to brush and floss, so correcting 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.

What to Expect

Even if you had braces as a kid, your teeth can shift throughout your lifetime. It may take longer for adult teeth to move into position than children’s teeth. The length of time adults need to wear braces varies widely. Most treatments range from one year to three years. Once your teeth are positioned correctly, you will probably need to wear a retainer. Your orthodontist can attach permanent retainers to the backs of your teeth.

How to Get Affordable Braces

The cost of orthodontic procedures varies significantly by treatment type, but a good dental plan that covers all or part of orthodontic treatment can make affordable braces a reality. If you can pay the entire fee up front, you may be eligible for a discount. If you can’t, talk to your orthodontist about monthly installments or other payment plans; your smile is worth the investment.
