If you aren’t feeling good because your teeth just don’t look great, then it’s time to talk about braces. Discover how braces for adults can make your life much better.

7 Benefits of Braces for Adults

Today, orthodontists are helping more adults than ever achieve their goal of a great smile. According to The American Association of Orthodontics, 20% of patients are over age 18. Braces for adults go beyond just straightening teeth by providing the following seven benefits:

  • Improved dental health
  • Less pain in the jaw and face
  • More attractive appearance
  • Increased self-confidence
  • Better speech
  • Easier chewing and swallowing
  • More social and professional success

How Braces Work

Orthodontics works by placing appliances onto the teeth that apply gentle pressure to adjust their position. Braces are the most common dental appliances because they let teeth move in different directions while treating many teeth at once. Orthodontists can place braces on the teeth in under two hours, but they may require ongoing adjustment to ensure a comfortable fit. To find the best orthodontist for you, ask your dentist for recommendations.

Braces Today are Trendy

You won’t believe your eyes when you see the tiny and trendy shapes of the braces of today. And with new options in clear plastic or tooth-colored enamel, they’re less noticeable than ever and offer much greater comfort. But if you want to make braces fashionable, choose the brightly colored elastics and wires that are popular with teens. Braces are no longer seen as a burden, just a way to improve your look and your life. Simply find the best orthodontist for you and get the smile you deserve.
