"Making you smile from the inside out"

Braces aren’t just for children March 21, 2014

Many adults today wear braces for various reasons such as shifting teeth which may have drifted into poor alignment, straightening a smile a bit or simply enabling better oral health, like brushing or flossing.  They may also be worn for more serious problems such as bite problems that cause jaw pain.

Here’s the good news.  Advances in technology have made braces easier to wear and in many cases, all but invisible.  For instance:

  • Ceramic braces made of a clear material that’s much less obvious than traditional metal braces.
  • Brackets attached to the back of teeth holding wires that pull them into a new position.
  • Customized plastic aligners that fit like tooth guards over teeth, gently moving your bite into a new position.

Depending on what your problem might be, many of these may be options.  The point, of course, is if you’re an adult braces may be a viable option for you and solve one of the problems we’ve listed above.  If you think that might be the case and would like your questions answered, don’t hesitate to give us a call.
