Braces Aren’t Just for Kids & Teenagers

According to the AAO, 20% of all orthodontic patients in America are more than 21 years of age. While traditionally, braces were seen as a dental treatment for teenagers, today’s patients are realizing that adults have options, too.

Benefits of Orthodontic Treatment

Regardless of your age, straighter teeth provide multiple benefits for your oral health as well as your personal well-being. For adults, the advantages are even greater. They include:

  • Enhanced appearance & smile
  • Increased oral health
  • Improved self-confidence
  • Prevention of oral health issues like gum disease & tooth decay
  • Prevention of bone loss caused by improperly positioned teeth
  • Improved ability to bite & chew

Available Treatment Options for Adults

If the idea of wearing metal braces is keeping you from straightening your smile, then you’ll be glad to know that advancements in modern orthodontics mean you now have multiple options. In addition to traditional metal braces, we offer both options below for adults who prefer a more discreet treatment method.

Invisalign Uses a series of removable, clear aligner trays to move your teeth into their optimal position. The treatment result is similar to traditional braces and is typically achieved in less time.

Clear Braces – Designed to work just like traditional metal braces, but they are made with clear or tooth-colored pieces that fit on your teeth so the braces are nearly undetectable.

Schedule your appointment with Dr. Karl today to see which option will work best for your unique needs.
