Pediatric Orthodontics Expert Tells Adults: It’s Not Too Late for Braces!

pediatric-orthodonticsIf you’re looking to straighten your smile as an adult, look no further! No matter how old you are, you have the opportunity to get the smile you desire. If you’re concerned about the appearance of traditional braces, keep in mind that we offer other types of braces that are barely noticeable to nearly invisible to preserve your self-confidence as you are treated. Our pediatric orthodontics expert offers some information on adult braces below.

Pros of Braces

You may have missed the age where many people go through orthodontic treatment, but that doesn’t mean you have to suffer from the issues that misaligned teeth can cause. If you have a crooked smile, it can negatively impact your self-confidence.

Additionally, if you have a misaligned bite, it can affect your ability to chew properly, increase the chances of dental problems, and also affect how your face and jaw look. Adjusting these problems can increase your comfort, reduce the chances of dental problems, and improve your appearance.

Differences As An Adult

As an adult, your mouth has become more resistant to movement as the soft palate has fused completely. This means that adjustments may be more uncomfortable for you for a few days after than it would be for a child or teenager. Additionally, adult’s teeth don’t move as freely, which means it may take longer for treatment to be complete.

Other than these differences, at the end of your treatment, your results will be just as successful as any other!

Discreet Types of Braces to Keep in Mind

If you are bothered by the look of traditional metal braces, there are other options available to preserve your confidence. These may include clear aligners, tooth-colored brackets, or less visible wires. Check with our orthodontist today to see if you are a candidate for our discreet options!
