Many of our adult patients find the thought of wearing braces unappealing. We so often see braces on kids and teenagers that the idea of adult orthodontics can seem a little bit embarrassing. However, that stigma is not as prevalent as you might think, and while braces can affect your appearance for a short time, a crooked smile can have a negative effect on your appearance and health for the rest of your life. Schedule your appointment with our St. Augustine orthodontist today. Also serving Nocatee and St. Johns, FL.
With straight teeth, you can increase your confidence, your oral health and your overall wellbeing. The benefits of having a straight, beautiful smile are more than worth any investment.
In the past few years, more and more adult patients have decided to achieve straight teeth. With advancements in orthodontics, like smaller braces and Invisalign, adults find it more feasible and less inconvenient to wear orthodontics.
Why Wear Braces as an Adult?
Maybe you’ve worn braces in the past, but your teeth have shifted over the years. Or maybe you have never worn adult orthodontics. There are plenty of reasons why the adult years are a great time to speak with your orthodontist about braces.
Improve Your Life | Adult orthodontics can significantly boost your appearance and your self-esteem. This new confidence will translate into your daily work and your social interactions.
Prevent Complications | Crooked teeth and a bad bite contribute to bone loss, tooth decay, abnormal wear on the teeth, and jaw joint pain. You can avoid discomfort and expensive treatments by wearing adult orthodontics.
Simple and Subtle Treatments | Treatments have become far more advanced over the years. Our adult orthodontics shorten wear time and decrease visits to the orthodontist. Braces are smaller and sleeker now, or you can choose aligners that are virtually invisible!
Save Money | Today’s orthodontics are more affordable, and we are happy to work with different budgets at Henry Advanced Orthodontics. Adult orthodontics will save you the costs of crooked teeth down the road, like tooth extractions, TMJ treatments, and periodontal therapy.
Can adults benefit from straight teeth? Yes! Treatment doesn’t usually take more than a year or so, and it can be comfortable from start to finish. Why not take advantage of the health and aesthetic benefits of straight teeth?
