Reasons Why Adults Choose Braces for Their Smile
We all have our own insecurities, and the appearance of our smile can be a big one. But it doesn’t have to be with braces. Many adults choose braces to straighten their teeth for cosmetic reasons, but what they might not always consider is how much your oral health improves too. Since braces work to realign your teeth, they close those tiny spaces where plaque can be missed when you floss your teeth. Plus, with a perfectly aligned bite, you are less likely to have troubles with TMJ.

Types of Braces for Adults
With the latest advancements in braces over the years, there are so many choices to choose from now. If you are worried about a mouthful of metal, don’t be. Our orthodontists and team offer a variety of discreet and comfortable options to correct any issues with your teeth. Check out the list below to find out which type of braces you would like to accompany your smile.

Adult vs. Early Orthodontics
Timing is the only key difference between getting braces as a kid versus as an adult. When you are younger, your jawbone has not fully developed, making orthodontic treatment easier for your teeth to properly grown in.

As a full-grown adult, you have already had everything settled in, so treatment will take a bit more time. But trust us, it is worth it!
