You are never too old for braces! In fact, the American Association of Orthodontists states that one in five orthodontic patients is over the age of 21 and requires braces for adults. More and more adults are choosing to receive treatment because they understand the importance of maintaining their health, and they want to feel better about their appearance. Orthodontic treatment at later stages in life can improve one’s confidence and self-esteem that can have a lasting effect on personal and work life.
Orthodontic treatment improves your dental health not just by appearance. Having a better alignment and fit of teeth can help prevent tooth decay, abnormal wear of the surfaces of teeth, and improve jaw function. Today’s orthodontic technology offers a variety of braces and appliances that are more comfortable, esthetic, and customized to meet your needs.
Dr. Kapadia offers professional treatment with braces for adults in Oviedo, FL. He and his friendly team will guide you to choose the best option for your treatment, taking into consideration your personal taste.
Some adults may go for traditional metal braces as these are the most cost effective solution and have a charm of their own. Others who are not very fond of the idea of having braces, may go for less noticeable options such as ceramic braces with clear or tooth colored brackets, or lingual braces (behind the teeth). For adults who are concerned about their appearance in metal or even ceramic braces, we offer more cosmetic solutions such as clear braces and Invisalign®.
Remember, a straight smile isn’t just beautiful; it will help you maintain the health of your teeth for life!
