Get Ready for Grown-Up Smiles with Braces for Adults

dca-blog_caring-for-braces-retainers

Braces aren’t just for adolescents anymore. Orthodontists are seeing increasing numbers of adult patients who want to improve their smiles. In fact, some report that almost half of their patients are adults. In the last couple of decades, orthodontic appliances have become more attractive, less painful, and less time consuming than ever before. Today’s braces for adults use smaller, lightweight brackets and fewer visible wires and bands. Options like clear brackets and invisible aligner trays make the traditional metal-mouth look a thing of the past. Adult patients usually wear braces for a year or two in order to achieve their goals. 



Adulthood is the Perfect Time for Affordable Braces


As adults, many people whose parents could not afford to get them braces when they were kids now have sufficient income to cover the expense. Some may have a greater appreciation of the cosmetic and health benefits of braces now that they are older. With age comes patience and wisdom; it may be easier to accept the temporary inconvenience of wearing braces as an adult, especially if it promises an improved social or professional life. 



Beyond Aesthetics
Looking great is just one reason to wear braces. Dental professionals point out that correcting your bite also has health benefits. People with misaligned teeth are at higher risk of tooth decay and periodontal disease because it is harder to reach the plaque that accumulates between their teeth. People with defective bites may also have difficulty chewing their food properly, and this can cause gastrointestinal problems. Braces for adults not only increase self-confidence, they may also contribute to overall good health.
