Am I a Good Candidate for Adult Braces?

It can be really frustrating to have problems with the alignment or spacing of your teeth. You can be so self-conscious that you don’t even like to smile for the camera. And these problems aren’t just cosmetic; orthodontic issues with your teeth can make you more prone to other problems, such as sleep apnea or TMJ disorders. As an adult, you may think that it is too late to do anything about the position of your teeth or bite, but nothing could be further from the truth. Adult braces could be the right decision for you.

Good Candidates for Adult Braces

Braces are not just for teens. More and more adults at any age are considering orthodontic treatment to correct issues with their teeth. If you have always struggled with crowding that has caused your teeth to overlap, braces can correct the problem. If your teeth are misaligned or there are issues with your bite, you can choose braces to resolve the issue. If you are dealing with large gaps, our orthodontist can lay out a personalized treatment plan to correct the problem. Braces are an effective way to shift your teeth into the proper position. Not only will your teeth look better, but it will also be easier for you to take care of them.

You Have Options

There was a time when your only choice involved traditional braces, but those days are long gone. If visibility is your concern, you could have ceramic brackets to make the braces more discreet. The SmartClip system used at our office uses self-ligating braces to speed up the process while you are undergoing orthodontic treatment. Depending on your situation, you may even be a candidate for clear aligners known as Invisalign® that slide in over your teeth and gently shift them into position. With so many options available, it can be difficult to decide which one might be right for you.

This is where our skilled team can help. During your consultation, we can evaluate your teeth and go over your options, helping you determine which type of braces would help you the most.

Give Yourself the Gift of an Incredible Smile

You’ve taken the journey into adulthood with teeth that have disappointed you. It’s not too late to do something about it. You could be a candidate for adult braces. Once your teeth are shifted into proper alignment, you can smile without worry while your confidence soars. With the assistance of braces, you will be happy to flash those pearly whites. Open the door to more possibilities as you find out what it is like to have a beautiful set of teeth.
