It’s never too late to get the perfect smile!March 6, 2020 5:21 am
Our society got used to seeing children and teenagers with braces and gradually a common belief has been built that orthodontic treatment is only for children. Orthodontists definitely encourage parents to take their children for an early orthodontic consultation to detect and diagnose bite and jaw problems and start the treatment early to shorten the treatment time.
Does this mean however that adults can’t get braces? Absolutely not!
Although many adult patients choose to have braces for cosmetic purposes such as fixing crooked teeth, however, spacing, crowding and bite problems could be reasons why some are still in need of an Orthodontic treatment. Having improper teeth alignment may ultimately cause premature wear and tear of teeth, advanced tooth decay and gum disease.
Various Treatments are now available which make the decision of orthodontic treatment much easier for adults,especially for those who refuse having the classic metallic braces. Clear Aligners which are invisible, Lingual Braces which are placed on the back side of the teeth, and Ceramic braces which have the exact color of the teeth are all options to choose from. These customized braces are light and convenient!
How do you know if you are a good candidate for adult braces?
If you think you might benefit from braces, go for an orthodontic consultation. The orthodontist will examine you and based on that, a treatment plan will be recommended. Always remember, it’s never too late to get the perfect smile, and age should never be an obstacle.
