Reasons Why Adults Need Orthodontic Treatment

Adults need orthodontic treatment to get rid of the following oral health problems:-

  • Crowding of teeth or large space between them – Both these conditions can lead to gum disease or tooth decay.
  • Cosmetic reasons – Sometimes, the misalignment is not a health hazard, but it does affect your smile.
  • Crooked and misaligned teeth – You can’t brush properly with crooked teeth, so the accumulated cavities lead to decay and infection.
  • Bad bite- It is a painful condition when your teeth don’t fit properly in your mouth. You can’t eat or chew properly.

Orthodontic Treatment Options for Adults

There are plenty of adult orthodontic treatments available with your orthodontist now. The most prescribed and proven are listed as below:-

Invisalign

Invisalign is one of the most sorted orthodontic treatments for adults. There are 2 main reasons for that. The first is that you get clear plastic aligner trays in this treatment which are not visible to others. Secondly, you can yourself remove the tray when you eat, brush or floss. And you can wear them again afterward. The trays need to be changed periodically to maintain the ongoing pressure of shifting on your teeth.

Clear Braces/Ceramic Braces

Amongst all the adult braces options available nowadays, Clear braces are mainly prescribed for adults. Their primary benefit is that they match with the color of your teeth and become unnoticeable for others. The material used in clear braces is either ceramic, clear plastic, or porcelain. They are also known as ceramic braces. They are also tied with wire-like metal braces to your teeth. But the wire is also not very prominent like metal braces. Therefore they are also popular as invisible braces.

Metal Braces

Metal braces are successfully treating misalignments and other dental issues since decades. They are stripped to your teeth with the help of wires. These wires are tightened every few weeks to push your teeth gradually to the desired position. Earlier, these were associated with kids only. But now, it is common for orthodontists to prescribe metal braces for adults. They are suitable for restoring misaligned teeth and incorrect bites.

Adult Braces Cost

Adult braces are not as expensive as other orthodontic treatments for adults. The average cost of braces varies according to their type. Also, there is an option for every kind of budget. For example, if you need braces but don’t have a budget for the clear braces or Invisalign, your orthodontist can prescribe metal braces for you. Those are not discreet, but they can treat you effectively.
At Vail Orthodontics, we offer the best types of braces for adults at affordable prices after a detailed personalized consultation.

Benefits of Adult orthodontics

The braces for adults came a long way from being uncomfortable, painful, and visibly awkward to being comfortable and discreet. Therefore braces are gaining popularity as the teeth straightening treatment for adults. You can also enjoy the following benefits by getting a timely braces treatment:-

  • They Reduce Oral Health Problems

    Misaligned teeth seem to be an inconvenience at the surface. But it can generate various dental and overall health issues over time. You can’t brush and floss crooked teeth properly. Hence, you can often find yourself in a dentist’s clinic for clearing cavities or other dental problems. Since braces can effectively treat misalignment and crooked teeth, getting adult braces significantly reduces the chances of oral health issues.

  • Corrects Your Bite

    Correcting a bite issue for an adult is complicated. This is because, unlike a child, an adult’s jaw is fully grown and developed. There is not much room for shifting the teeth in the correct position. But it is vital to have a healthy bite to do routine work like eating and chewing without any pain or discomfort. Braces are an affordable and effective way of treating bite issues in adults.

  • Reduces the Risk of Dental Problems

    Untreated crooked teeth and incorrect bites lead to various painful and chronic dental problems. You can even get gum disease which can also affect your heart health. Tooth decay or loss of a tooth is also a possibility. These concerns arise because the pressure is uneven on your jawbone and gums due to the misalignment of your teeth. Adult braces can prevent all these dental complications.

  • They Boost Self-Confidence – Makes You Look Good and Feel Confident

    Apart from being worthy as a person and professional, you need a pleasant appearance to be confident. When you are in a social circle, your uneven or crooked teeth can make you cautious of yourself. Your appearance can also adversely impact your presentation skills. In such cases, orthodontic treatment with braces acts as a boon for your self-esteem and thriving social life.
