Chances are when you think of the perfect candidate for braces, you think of a young kid or pre-teen. Although this is the time many people choose to have braces applied, it’s certainly not the only. Here at Camilo Riano Orthodontics, we want to remove the stigma when it comes to adult braces so that everyone has the opportunity to have a healthy smile and bite. Read on to learn why it’s never too late to get braces and contact us today for a consultation.
Adult Braces Are Just As Effective
There seems to be a common misconception that as we age, braces become less effective. Although a lot of things change as we get older, especially when it comes to our health and well-being, orthodontic treatment is not one of them. Braces can move your teeth just as effectively whether you’re a pre-teen or a mid-life adult. The reason it’s more common for younger people to get braces is because their teeth haven’t had the time to become significantly misaligned.
They’re Adaptable To An Adult Lifestyle
Another big concern for many adults is that braces won’t fit their lifestyle. As a kid, it’s okay to have noticeable brackets on your teeth because many other kids have the same. However, many adults are afraid of what people will think of them if they have braces on. Luckily, traditional braces aren’t the only option you have available to you. Here at Camilo Riano Orthodontics, we offer Invisalign, Incognito Lingual Braces, and clear ceramic braces, all of which is a hidden form of braces that don’t have the same social stigma attached to them that traditional braces do. This way you’ll be able to maintain a professional appearance while you’re undergoing treatment.
Improved Oral Health
Getting braces as an adult isn’t just about fixing a broken smile, it’s about your health. In order to maintain your oral health, you need to be brushing and flossing regularly, but what happens if your teeth are so misaligned that you aren’t able to brush and floss effectively? Adulthood is a time when gingivitis and periodontal disease become more prevalent for most people, so it’s important that you do anything and everything possible to improve your oral health. If you’re experiencing tooth pain, it could be due to a poorly aligned bite that’s putting too much pressure on one tooth. Braces will ensure that you have an even bite and don’t experience tooth loss later in life.
Improved Quality of Life
Let’s face it, we all love having a beautiful smile. As much as we like to believe that we’ve come to terms with our appearance as we get older, this quite simply is not the case. Think about the plastic surgery industry for example. It’s a billion dollar industry and is only getting bigger each year. By getting braces applied now, you’ll experience a huge confidence boost, in addition to reduce stress and anxiety when it comes to your appearance and generally, the way you feel about your self-image.
