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 for adultsin Oviedo, FL, as well as in Winter Springs, Geneva, Chuluota, and the surrounding areas. He and his friendly team will guide you to choose the best option for your treatment, taking into consideration your personal taste. Orthodontics: Why Adults Need It, Too Do you feel self-conscious with your appearance? If yes, then it makes sense to also pay attention to your smile. Thanks to advances in orthodontic treatment, it’s never too late to achieve a beautiful and healthy smile. Orthodontic procedures improve your appearance by straightening crooked teeth or eliminating gaps. Apart from enhancing your self-confidence, having a straighter set of teeth also reduces your risk for worn-out tooth surfaces. Properly aligned teeth further prevent tooth decay and gum disease. The American Dental Association reveals that oral infections can lead to heart disease and diabetes, among other health issues. Available Alternatives 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®.
