Braces for Adults are On-Trend

dca-blog_caring-for-braces-retainers

You’re never too old for a great smile. As more and more adults learn about new types of affordable braces and aligners that can straighten out their crooked teeth and correct lifelong cosmetic problems, orthodontists are treating increasing numbers of adult patients. Many are ready to take the plunge, and wear braces for a year or two in the hopes of achieving the smiles of their dreams. It’s no longer necessary to wear a mouth full of metal to correct spacing problems and other abnormalities. Smaller and lighter brackets, less-visible clear and ceramic options, fewer wire accessories, and new removable aligners are just a few of the advancements that make braces for adults appealing to late bloomers.

If an adult’s parents couldn’t afford to get them braces when they were young, they may now be able to cover the cost themselves. 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.

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. Getting braces as an adult can improve both self-esteem and overall health.
