As an adult, you might think that your options for having your teeth fixed are limited. You might think orthodontics are just for teenagers; but actually adults may obtain the best treatment results, due to their motivation and treatment compliance. Many adults choose to have orthodontic treatments done later in life, which preserves the integrity of their teeth longer with good oral hygiene. It’s never too late to work with an orthodontist!
Select Your Desired Treatment with Your Orthodontist
Adult orthodontic patients benefit from an increased array of options today. As an adult, you know which treatment will integrate best into your lifestyle; and you can articulate your needs to your orthodontist. At Hamer & Glassick Orthodontics, we are happy to discuss treatment options and help you pick the treatment that is right for you.
Being Responsible for Your Oral Hygiene
Some younger patients find it challenging to keep up with a good oral hygiene routine. As an adult, you can fully understand and appreciate the benefits of regular flossing and brushing to maintain optimum oral health. Healthy gums and teeth often mean your treatment time may be reduced.
Leverage Your Professional Assets
It’s important to feel confident as a professional. Straightening your teeth at any age can help boost self-esteem and enhance your communication skills, knowing that your smile will be admired around the water cooler and in meetings.
Give Your Social Life a Boost
Most people experience some level of anxiety in social situations when they aren’t happy with the appearance of their teeth. Adult orthodontic treatment may help improve your social life in several ways. You may take more initiative in making friends and feel more relaxed among the people you already know. Your new smile will attract people as you proudly show it off socially.
Many Aesthetically Pleasing Braces Options Can Be Yours
Today, there are plenty of adult-friendly orthodontic options from which to choose. If you don’t want to go the route of having traditional braces, we are happy to discuss Invisalign, clear braces or lingual braces.
