Braces For Adults

For years, it has been thought that dental braces are for children or teenagers. Parents have been inclined to put their children first when it comes to straightening teeth, fixing a cross bite, adjusting crowded teeth, and whatever other orthodontic problems might enhance confidence or improve a smile.

In today’s world, however, more and more adults are reaching out for orthodontic treatment to lift their own self esteem and even to improve their health. No one is “too old” for braces!dental braces

There are so many new appliance options for braces. This is why more adults now look for the right treatment or braces to correct their malocclusion (bad bite) conditions. Your orthodontist will help you with the proper choice!

Even celebrities are improving their looks and their smiles by wearing braces. At 40 years of age, Tom Cruise wore ceramic braces to improve his appearance. At 45 years of age, Faith Hill of famed country music, wore braces. Many orthodontists have treated adults in their 60’s, 70’s and 80’s.

In 2011, the Los Angeles Times reported that adults wearing braces had increased by 24% from 1989 through 2008.

Why Should Adults Get Braces?

1. TEETH CAN BE MOVED AT ANY AGE provided a person is healthy, and braces can enhance good health at any age. Crowded or overlapping teeth are difficult to clean. This makes tooth decay and gum disease more likely.

2. Every person’s SELF ESTEEM is important. This is often portrayed by a grin or a smile, that shows your teeth. Nothing looks more awkward than when a person laughs or smiles, and tries to cover their mouth with their hand. It appears immediately as a self conscious effort to hide your teeth.

3. Loss of teeth and/or SERIOUS HEALTH PROBLEMS may develop as a person ages. Misaligned teeth could contribute to these issues. The longer a person lives, the greater the possibility of plaque, tartar, or food collecting between your teeth—and this can lead to periodontal or gum disease.

4. FACIAL PROBLEMS such as earaches, nasal, and headaches could develop from a bad or poor bite. TMJ (Temporomandibular Joint Disorder) symptoms can come from grinding or clenching your teeth, your “bite”, or toothaches.

5. If you are unable to chew or swallow your food easily or properly because of an improper bite, this possibly can lead to GASTROINTESTINAL PROBLEMS.

6. Constantly biting the inside top tip of your lip or BITING YOUR INNER CHEEK may be the sign of an orthodontic problem. If your teeth are misaligned, do check with your orthodontist.

7. You have a CHOICE IN BRACES in today’s world. You don’t necessarily need metal braces. You can choose between the old traditional metal, ceramic clear material, or invisalign. Braces now are smaller, use less brackets, are less noticeable, and more effective.

8. Braces now vary in PRICE and are cheaper. The price will vary depending on the type of treatment. The severity of your problem will also determine the length of time you wear them.

9. If you were too busy with children or in your profession, as an adult you can take the TIME now to invest in your orthodontic care. This can be more than a cosmetic issue—so don’t procrastinate any longer. Study your options; consult with your orthodontist;

10. Today braces are MORE COMFORTABLE than those offered in the past. While pressure is placed on the teeth to move them in the desired direction, this procedure is assisted with wires, elastic bands or springs. Over-the-counter medication, like Tylenol or Ibuprofen, will help any tenderness.

11. AVOID DENTURES in your later years. There is hardly a more distracting sound from an adult than the clicking of dentures that have never been fitted properly or that need to be relined. This also adds to the discomfort of dentures. Do consider braces first—at any age!

12. According to the Academy of Dentistry, approximately ONE MILLION PEOPLE in the USA and Canada over the age of 18 wear braces.

These reasons, and newer appliance options, attract ADULTS to WEAR BRACES to straighten teeth, to remove diseased teeth, to prepare for implants, so they can SMILE with confidence and self-esteem again.
