Invisalign Braces For Patients Near Ballantyne
In our culture, braces were historically considered “kids stuff.” If a dentist discovered bite problems or permanent teeth came in noticeably crooked, junior went to the orthodontist and came home with metal bands, brackets and wires. He probably wore them for several years, and when they came off, had some cavities and enamel damage.
Many people near Myers Park and throughout the nation believed that if they didn’t have teeth straightened by the time they were out of high school, it was too late. Today, we know that it is never too late to get an attractively even smile. In fact, adult patients now represent about half of Americans in some form of orthodontics. Adult orthodontics are not only okay, they are awesome!
Straightening Benefits and the Rise of Adult Orthodontics
Three primary factors have led to this revolution of straight smiles with adult orthodontics patients:
- Straightening may correct bite problems and improve mouth function, but it’s also okay to straighten for purely cosmetic appeal and adult orthodontics can provide this.
- Speaking of cosmetic appeal, the positive impact of a stunning smile on self-confidence, business success, dating and mating, and oral hygiene should not be understated.
- Lastly, metal braces (especially for aesthetic straightening) paved the way for modern adult orthodontics options that are unobtrusive lightweight, and quicker. To put it simply, it’s easier than ever to straighten your smile today with adult orthodontics.
