IT’S NEVER TOO LATE TO TAKE CORRECTIVE ACTION.
So let’s get one thing out of the way right off the bat: you are never too old to benefit from orthodontic treatment. Just like with children, it’s important for adults to know that the earlier a dental issue is addressed, the better. In fact, taking action now may prevent you from needing uncomfortable and expensive dental procedures in the future. Leaving misaligned teeth untreated—even as an adult—often leads to other dental complications, such as tooth decay and gum disease, as well as abnormal wearing of tooth surfaces and difficulty chewing. We simply can’t have that, can we?
FOR ADULTS WITH BRACES, IT’S BUSINESS AS USUAL.
Now most of us don’t want to admit that we’re vain, but there’s no downplaying the fact that correcting crooked teeth or spaces between your teeth can improve your self-confidence. And if you have any reservations about wearing braces as an adult, there are many options available to minimize their appearance. So have no fear. In addition, it’s business as usual during orthodontic treatment. Whether it’s singing your heart out, playing a musical instrument, dining out at a fine restaurant, kissing your loved one, or having your picture taken, braces won’t change a thing..
And just to make you feel even more comfortable with the idea of having braces as an adult, check out this list: Oprah, Diana Ross, Tom Cruise, Barbara Walters, and Cher. They all wore braces as adults. And just think, they’re on the big screen and on your television. So there’s nothing for adults to worry about at all.
