If you are unhappy with the appearance of your smile, or if you have dental health issues that stem from misaligned teeth or jaws, braces are a great option as an adult. While orthodontic treatment is available for adults, it may vary from treatments for kids and teens. Below are some aspects getting braces as an adult to consider when deciding if braces are the best option for you:
- Braces Provide More Than Just Cosmetic Benefits- Although getting braces will help your smile look amazing, there are so many oral health benefits to braces as well! Having straight teeth makes it easier to fully clean when brushing your teeth, reducing the likelihood of developing gum disease, tooth decay, and cavities. Aligning your teeth and jaws through braces will also alleviate problems associated with misalignment, including chewing issues, headaches and earaches, and jaw pain.
- You Don’t Need to Get Metal Braces- While metal braces may have been the norm when you were younger, there are now so many variations of braces available. Metal braces are still an option, but you may also be a candidate for ceramic braces, which match the color of your teeth, or Invisalign aligners. Ceramic braces and Invisalign serve as a way to receive the benefits of aligning your teeth, without having to feel uncomfortable with noticeable metal braces.
- Adult Teeth Have Different Requirements- To receive braces as an adult, it is necessary that you have strong enough teeth and bones that can withstand the forces of braces, in order to avoid unwanted consequences like tooth decay. Additionally, because adult teeth and jaws have stopped developing, it may be harder to correct certain forms of misalignments. This means that your orthodontic treatment may need to be paired with an oral surgery, or you might have to wear your braces for a longer period of time.
