4 Reasons Why You Should Consider Braces as an Adult

Posted .

If you aren’t sure if getting braces as an adult would be worth it to you, our Blais Orthodontics team is here to help you think otherwise! Braces are placed on adult smiles more and more each day, and there are many reasons why you should consider doing so as well. Those reasons are:

No. 1: Every smile is important
Did you know that your smile is the first characteristic people notice about you? Well, it’s true, which is why your smile is so important. We want you to be proud of your smile and never afraid to show it off. If you’re embarrassed of your crooked teeth in any way, it’s time to change your appearance with braces!

No. 2: Teeth move at every age, even when they’re healthy
Yes, your teeth move each day, whether you notice it or not, and sooner or later you will have an even more crooked and misaligned smile. It’s time to stop the shifting of your teeth and finally put them in the correct position through braces. After your treatment is completed, you can keep your teeth from moving by wearing a retainer.

No. 3: Teeth misalignments can cause major dental problems
If your teeth are crooked, the plaque and bacteria in your mouth tend to hide in the hidden and hard-to-reach areas of your smile. When this happens, the toothbrush and floss cannot reach them and they continue to build up and grow. Eventually, your teeth will become victim to tooth decay and gum disease.

No. 4: Today braces are better, cheaper, and less noticeable
Today is the perfect time to align your smile because orthodontics are now extremely successful, affordable, and less noticeable! You can choose which appliance to use so you feel more comfortable throughout your treatment. Some treatment options include metal braces, Invisalign®, ClearCorrect®, lingual braces, and ceramic braces.
