Braces For Adults

Braces For Adults

You may associate braces with teenagers, but in truth you are never too old to have braces fitted. There are many reasons why adults may choose to undergo Orthodontic treatment, the most common of which is to improve the aesthetic appearance of misaligned teeth. Aside from the poor self confidence that can result from a less than perfect smile, misaligned teeth can also lead to problems with biting, chewing and speech. In general straight teeth are healthier teeth and are less likely to be affected by tooth decay and periodontal disease. Patients with straight teeth are also less likely to suffer from digestive disorders, or injuries to their teeth.

Modern Orthodontic treatments have been specially adapted and modified with adults in mind and there are many different options that your Orthodontist can discuss with you.

‘Invisible’ braces

If you are concerned about the impact of braces on your appearance, there are now many discreet options available, both fixed and removable, including clear brackets and Invisalign retainers that your Orthodontist may recommend.
