You’re Never Too Old for Orthodontics
Braces for adults are popular today because more and more people are realizing that it’s never too late to have a great smile. In fact, up to 75 percent of adults have an orthodontic problem that could be easily improved with braces.
Benefits of Braces
Today, adults are filling orthodontists offices as more and more people are realizing the great rewards of a good-looking smile. Some of the personal and professional advantages of braces for adults include:
- Greater self-confidence
- More career opportunities
- Better social life
- Reduced risk of tooth decay since misaligned teeth are more difficult to clean, which makes them more prone to decay and disease
- Improved chewing ability
- Increased comfort
When Braces are Best
According to orthodontists, age is not an issue in orthodontic treatment. But certain factors affect the decision regarding braces for adults, such as the adult’s current dental health, their overall health, and the dental problem in need of repair. Yet even the best orthodontist cannot provide treatment when certain diseases or drugs would complicate care, such as periodontal disease, leukemia, severe heart-valve disease, uncontrolled diabetes, bleeding disorders, leukemia, or when patients are taking some medications for arthritis or osteoporosis.
Better Braces Today
Braces are no longer limited to metal, as new and novel orthodontic appliances are being developed. There is now a wide variety of orthodontic options that are more comfortable and less noticeable than ever before. New orthodontic options include clear braces, virtually invisible clear aligners, and braces placed on the backs of teeth. To find the best orthodontist near you, ask your dentist and your friends for recommendations and discover the joy of a better smile.
