Benefits of Orthodontic Care as an Adult
We have heard from patients who would love to improve the placement of their teeth but feel that the time for that has long since passed. We are here to tell you that you are never too old to make an improvement to your teeth! In fact, many of our adult patients who have opted for orthodontic care appreciate their new smile. Think back to your teenage days. Maybe you already wore braces or had many friends that did. Did anyone really appreciate wearing braces as a teen? More likely than not, it was probably something that was forced by a family member. Additional benefits of orthodontic care as an adult include:
Better Oral Care
As you age, you learn to properly care for your teeth, and the same is true when you are in the process of wearing orthodontic hardware. Our adult patients are better able to follow the directions needed to care for the hardware and their teeth during treatment.
Diminished Oral Health Risks
Spaces between teeth can lead to trapped food, followed by tooth decay. This can cause the need for fillings, root canals, and other treatments. Closing those gaps with orthodontic care can eliminate the need for uncomfortable and costly treatments.
Invisible Treatment Available
We are proud to offer clear braces to our adult patients. This is achieved with the use of clear aligner trays. Clear aligners are molded to the shape of your teeth and slowly transition teeth into the desired placement. They are removable and require fewer office visits than traditional metal braces. Clear aligners can help improve:
- Crooked teeth
- Spaces between teeth
- Bite issues
If you are ready to learn more about the use of clear adult braces, call our office located in Silverdale, WA to schedule an appointment. We look forward to helping you improve the function and appearance of your smile!
