If you’re an adult with misaligned, crowded, or crooked teeth, it’s never too late to correct your smile. The best orthodontists in your area provide braces for adults as well as teenagers. Orthodontic treatments do more than just enhance your appearance; they can actually improve your oral health. Misaligned teeth are often difficult to clean properly, and the resulting plaque buildup leads to periodontal disease and eventual tooth loss. With orthodontic correction, you’ll be able to clean your teeth more effectively. It will also help you to chew properly, which benefits your gastrointestinal health. 
 



Know Your Options
for Orthodontic Treatments

A range of orthodontic treatments is available for adults. If you opt for traditional braces for adults, you can choose either metal, ceramic, or clear brackets. Each has its own benefits. If you have severe bite problems or crooked teeth, metal braces may be more effective at moving your teeth into position. Clear braces are generally effective for moderate problems, and they provide a natural-looking appearance that may be preferable if the idea of wearing visible braces makes you feel uncomfortable. However, clear braces are more expensive, and the adhesive used to hold the brackets in place can become stained from smoking or food.

The Best Orthodontists Can Improve Your Smile

Today’s orthodontists understand the special needs of older patients, and they can help you decide which treatment options are the most practical for your dental problems and your lifestyle. You may have to wear braces longer than a typical teenager because your bones have stopped growing, but the benefits of your great new smile will be worth the wait.
