You’re a parent. You’re busy. You work hard and put your family first. But it’s also important to care for and feel great about yourself. And because your smile is one of the first impressions you make, there are great options that can help if you don’t love yours.
Whether you wanted your teeth straightened as a child, but never had it done, or you noticed a shift in your teeth since having braces as a child, there is no better time than now to create the smile you’ve always wanted.
Here are 5 great reasons to consider adult braces:
1. Adult Braces are More Common Now than Ever
Braces aren’t just for kids anymore. In fact, between 20 and 25% of those who wear braces are adults! From celebrities like Faith Hill who wore braces at age 45 to Tom Cruise who perfected his smile at age 40, adult braces are more common than ever before!
2. A Healthy Mouth Matters
It’s practical but true. When teeth aren’t aligned properly, there is increased likelihood of plaque build up. In some cases, where tongue or cheek biting are common, proper teeth alignment can help with proper food digestion and relieve gastrointestinal issues. If you’re experiencing health issues due to misaligned teeth, braces could be a crucial step towards improved health.
3. Technology has Made Braces Less Noticeable.
If you are worried about the appearance of braces, technology has made having your teeth straightened less noticeable than ever. Clear braces and traditional braces are now a great option, and today’s brackets are smaller than in the past, making braces less visible.
4. Braces are Temporary. Beautiful Smiles Last.
In addition to making braces less visible, technology has made treatment time shorter, allowing you to look and feel your best faster and easier than ever before!
5. You Deserve a Great Smile Too!
It’s natural for parents to put their children first. But moms and dads deserve great smiles too! Whether your smile is something you have been self conscious about or your teeth have shifted since having braces as a child, it isn’t too late to get a beautiful smile.
