Adult Orthodontic Treatment:
Braces Aren’t Just For Kids!

It doesn’t matter if you had braces as a child or not. The hard fact is that everyone’s teeth shift as we get older. Sometimes those shifts can be rapid and severe enough that we can start to lose confidence in our smile. Don’t clench your teeth and grimace to learn this, though – we have good news, too! Kids aren’t the only patients who can benefit from braces or dental aligners (e.g., Invisalign or ClearCorrect). In fact, the number of people receiving adult braces or Invisalign has risen exponentially in recent years.

Today over one million adult Americans and Canadians wear braces, according to the Academy of General Dentistry, and the numerous celebrities who have worn braces as adults (for example, Faith Hill, Gwen Stefani, Tom Cruise, and Faye Dunaway) have obliterated the notion that braces are just for kids and teenagers.

There are numerous options for braces nowadays that range from traditional metal bracket systems to clear plastic, removable aligners. Braces can be placed on the fronts of your teeth or behind them. You can choose braces that use rubber bands or braces without them. If you are an adult who feels self conscious about your smile but hesitates to wear traditional metal braces to work, then there has never been a better time to seek out an orthodontist to discuss the plethora of other options available to you!

This information is not meant as medical advice. It is provided solely for educational purposes by Excellence in Orthodontics. To learn more about adult braces or aligners such as Invisalign or ClearCorrect, speak with your family’s orthodontist or with one of the highly skilled orthodontic specialists in our national database. We also offer a Braces 101 tutorial, where you can learn much more about the variety of braces and aligner options available today.

I love the doctors and staff recommended by Excellence In Orthodontics! All very knowledgeable and always very pleasant at each appointment. They consistently run on time, which is very rare with doctors these days. They are also very willing to work with you on billing arrangements so you can afford a financial burden like braces. I never would have found my Orthodontist without the help of Excellence In Orthodontics!”
