If you think you missed your opportunity for braces when you became an adult, think again! It is estimated that 1 in 5 patients in orthodontic treatment are adults. Here’s why so many adults have found that braces are worth wearing.
If you find yourself laughing with your hands covering your mouth because you are self-conscious about your smile you are not alone. Many adults live in fear of smiling too much and revealing that their teeth aren’t perfect. That’s because your smile is one of the first things people notice about you. Adult braces can help you show off your smile that you’re no longer self-conscious about.
A common misconception is that braces are just for kids. The reality is that adults are great candidates for orthodontic treatment because their teeth and jaw structures are fully developed. Whether you had braces as a child and your teeth have shifted or you have never had a smile evaluation by an orthodontist, there are several treatment options that are effective for adult patients. You also don't need a referral to visit an orthodontist and, the evaluation is free!
If you had braces as a kid or you remember your friends having braces, technology has improved dramatically over the last decade. Instead of those messy impressions, you may receive a simple digital scan instead! Nervous about the look of braces on your teeth as an adult? Invisible clear aligners can also straighten teeth very effectively - without everyone noticing! To find out if you're a candidate for Invisalign, you will need to schedule a free consultation so Dr. Forster can evaluate your smile. With interest-free monthly payment plans, braces are also more affordable than ever.
The number one reason patients seek orthodontic treatment is confidence. We are firm believers that patients of all shapes and sizes deserve a smile they are proud of. Whatever the reason may be, to walk a little taller, to smile a little bigger, or to apply for the job you've been after, we would love to invite you to come see us for a complimentary smile exam. During the evaluation, we'll take some photos and X-rays and Dr. Forster will meet with you to discuss what treatment options you are eligible for and the most effective course of treatment to get you that more confident smile.
