Orthodontic Treatment Is Not Just For Kids

Posted on 09/23/2016

Are you an adult who sometimes hides your smile when spending time around others? Maybe you have spaces between your teeth, crowded teeth, or front teeth that protrude? Then you should know that thanks to many advances made in the field of orthodontics over the past decade or so, adult orthodontic treatment is very popular today. In fact, many of the patients we see at our Warminster orthodontic office are adults who have already discovered that braces are definitely not just a treatment for children and teens.

Braces Are Ideal For Adults Too

When it comes to braces, there are many more choices than just the conventional metal braces we are all familiar with. Many of the adults we serve choose to wear clear ceramic braces that feature translucent brackets for very discreet treatment. Invisalign is another popular way for adults to improve their smiles. This system takes a "clearly" different approach to improving a smile as it consists of a series of clear, removable aligners.

When you are wearing Invisalign, you can feel great about your appearance for the entire time you are in treatment, as most people will not even notice you have the aligners in. Additionally, when it comes time to enjoy a meal, you can eat all your favorite foods without worrying about your appliances breaking as you simply remove the aligners when eating. The aligners are also designed to be taken out when brushing and flossing, so maintaining good oral hygiene is even easier when you are an Invisalign patient!

Advantages Of Adult Treatment

Undergoing orthodontic treatment as an adult can dramatically improve both your appearance and self-confidence. It can also do wonders for improving the overall health of your teeth and gums. When your teeth are out of alignment, you are more prone to developing tooth decay, abnormal wear and tear on the surface of your teeth, and are at risk for bone loss, headaches, and jaw joint pain.

Many of the patients we see every day in our office are adults who have decided it is time to improve both their smiles and overall dental health. We offer the types of braces adults love that are both discreet and comfortable, while reducing the frequency of visits and shortening treatment time.
