Braces for Adults Give Grown-Ups a New Reason to Smile

dca-blog_orthodontics-african-american-woman-smile

The best orthodontists in Blue Bell don’t just treat teenagers; more and more adults are improving their smiles and their dental health with orthodontic treatments. It’s never too late to enhance your smile, but getting braces can also protect you from dental health issues caused by problems like misaligned or crowded teeth. It’s difficult or even impossible to clean overlapping teeth properly. The situation allows plaque and food debris to build up, and contributes to periodontal disease, which may eventually cause tooth loss. If they make it difficult for you to chew properly, your dental problems can even affect your gastrointestinal system.

Understand Your Options
for Orthodontic Treatments

There are a few options for braces for adults. Traditional braces may be made from clear plastic, metal, or natural-looking ceramic. Each material has its own benefits. If you have severe bite problems or crooked teeth, metal braces may be more effective at moving your teeth into position. Clear braces are typically effective for moderate problems. and they provide a natural-looking appearance that may be preferable if wearing visible braces would make you feel uncomfortable; however, they cost more. Plus, the adhesive that’s used to hold the brackets in place is easily stained by smoking and certain foods and drinks such as cola, red wine, and coffee.

Braces for Adults Can Improve Your Smile

Your family dentist can provide a referral to an orthodontist in Blue Bell. The best orthodontists understand the special needs of older patients, and they can help you decide which treatment options are the most practical for your dental problems and your lifestyle. You may have to wear braces longer than a typical teenager because your bones have stopped growing, but the benefits of your great new smile will be worth the wait.
