Adult Braces and Aligners are now more popular than ever!

Over one-third of all orthodontics patients are adults who sought out adult braces and aligners to straighten their teeth. With smaller brackets, less obtrusive metal bands, and alternative straightening options at affordable prices, the reasons for not getting adult braces or aligners pale in comparison to the benefits. Straighten your teeth now to enjoy beautiful and healthy teeth for years to come.


With time, braces and aligners have become more affordable, and you now have an income of your own to use as you please. As an adult, it is a great time to get braces because you can now afford it. Even if you are worried about finances, we can work with you to create a payment plan that works for you, and insurance may even help pay to have your teeth straightened, especially if your teeth are making dentist visits for repairs more prevalent.


As mentioned in the introduction, braces are now being made with small components. The smaller the components, the less noticeable the braces. The braces we use for adults are hassle-free and comfortable to wear. If you don’t like the idea of traditional metal adult braces, you can choose ceramic (clear) braces that are tooth-colored for less visibility, or clear aligners that are transparent. No matter which option you decide on, the adult braces and straightening treatments we offer are as disguised as possible, so they do not distract others from your beautiful smile. With our adult braces and aligners, you can go about your business life and social life as you would have without braces while never feeling self-conscious or less attractive.


As you have most likely heard, adult braces provide you with more than just a more attractive smile. Straightening that occurs with adult braces or aligners results in fewer cavities, less cleaning hassle, a shorter flossing period, and a more comfortable bite. With crowding and crooked teeth, it is hard to reach every crevice and provide your teeth with the brushing and flossing they need to effectively remineralize, preventing cavities. Once you receive straightening treatment, you will experience a noticeable difference in your oral cleaning routine that frees up your time in more ways than one. You may even get to visit the dentist less for restorations and teeth whitening treatments.

These are merely a few of the reasons adults pursue adult braces and straightening treatments regardless of their age.
