If you aren’t sure if you should align your adult smile with braces, our Quality Orthodontic Care team is happy to tell you that it’s a great idea! Orthodontics aren’t just for kids and teens anymore—they are for adults as well, and we encourage you to finally take the steps toward achieving the smile of your dreams. To help you feel better about orthodontics as an adult, we are happy to share the four reasons why we think you should commit to orthodontic treatment:

No. 1: Every smile is important
Your smile is the first characteristic people notice about you, which is why your smile is important. We want you to live a life where you are proud of your smile and you are not afraid to show it off each day—and braces can help make that happen!

No. 2: Teeth move at every age, even when they’re healthy
As an adult, you can’t keep your teeth from moving. They move each day and they continue to shift and change. The only way to keep your smile aligned is by first straightening it with braces and then wearing a retainer when recommended.

No. 3: Teeth misalignments can cause major dental problems
If your teeth are crooked, the plaque and bacteria in your mouth tend to hide in the hidden and hard-to-reach areas of your smile. When this happens, the toothbrush and floss cannot reach them and they continue to build up and grow. Eventually, your teeth will become victim to tooth decay and gum disease.

No. 4: Today braces are better, cheaper, and less noticeable
With modern technology in the world today, braces can quickly align your smile without putting a dent in your wallet and without being noticeable. There are many options that can quietly align your smile, like Invisalign®, ClearCorrect®, ceramic braces, and lingual braces.
