Advantages of Adult Braces

As an adult, you may find that your teeth straightening options are limited. You may think that orthodontics is only for teens but actually, adults may get exceptional remedy results, due to their motivation and treatment compliance. Today, braces have advanced so that there are a variety of different orthodontic options for adults and kids alike, coming in a range of styles and appearances. Here at Sonneveld Orthodontics, your Orland Park braces experts, we believe that everyone should be able to achieve a beautiful smile, even if you’re coming to the game a little late. Find out how Sonneveld Orthodontics in Orland Park can change your smile and change your life with the advantages of adult braces.

Myth: Braces Only Work On Adolescents

While many young people do get braces early to nip any orthodontic problems in the bud, it is never too late for adults to get braces! The process of getting braces as an adult is in many ways easier than it is when you are young. Here are some of the advantages of adult braces:

  • Improve your dental hygiene by straightening out your teeth
  • Increase your confidence with a beautiful smile
  • As an adult, you will have an easier time taking care of your braces
  • Adults are often better patients and streamline the process with good discipline
  • Clear braces are a great option for adults who want to be more discreet with their braces

What Is The Difference?

One of the primary differences between getting braces as an adult and getting braces as a kid is that adult braces can sometimes take longer to complete the treatment. This is not because the treatment itself is less effective, but because adult teeth are often settled into the jaw firmly. But this isn’t a reason to avoid adult braces in fact, it is a reason that you should get them. As you get older your jaw tends to harden around your teeth, making orthodontic treatment more difficult. In other words, now is the best time for you to get adult braces with Sonneveld Orthodontics in Orland Park!
