It's never too late to improve your smile! Whether you're 18 or 80, Goldreich Orthodontics can help you find the best option for straightening your teeth at any age.
Do Adults Need Braces?
While many people think braces are for kids, adults can benefit from braces, too. Some common conditions adult braces treat include:
- Crooked teeth.
- Underbite or overbite.
- Gaps in teeth.
- Overcrowded teeth.
Benefits of Braces for Adults
Braces can help you achieve the beautiful, healthy smile you've always wanted. After having braces as an adult, you will:
- Feel more confident about your smile: Whether you're going to a job interview or the grocery store, you'll feel confident knowing you have a straight, attractive smile.
- Have better oral health: Misaligned teeth can make you more vulnerable to issues like gum disease, tooth decay and even muscle soreness in the neck and jaw. Getting braces is one of the best ways to resolve these problems and improve your oral health.
- Speak more clearly: Improper teeth alignment may cause you to whistle when you speak or struggle to pronounce words. Braces straighten your teeth, correcting these issues and helping to improve your speech.
- Chew more easily: If you have a misaligned bite, chewing can be uncomfortable or even painful. Braces can make it easier to chew, enjoy and digest food pain-free.
Braces for Adult Teeth
At Goldreich Orthodontics, we offer advanced braces treatment for adults with discreet options, fast treatment times and comfortable materials. Check out our options below.
Metal Braces for Adults
Traditional metal braces can treat a range of bite problems effectively. They use brackets, an archwire and elastics to apply pressure that moves your teeth into proper alignment.
Today's metal braces are less bulky and more comfortable than they were in the past, with smaller brackets and slimmer wires. Most adults wear metal braces for 18 to 24 months, though specific treatment lengths vary from patient to patient.
Adult Ceramic Braces
Ceramic braces are similar to metal braces, except they use clear ceramic brackets and tooth-colored wires and elastics. This option offers a more discreet appearance while still transforming your smile. Most adults wear ceramic braces for 18 to 36 months.
Invisalign® for Adults
Invisalign braces alternatives use clear, removable aligners to straighten teeth, eliminating the need for brackets, wires and elastics used with traditional braces. They are a virtually invisible, convenient and comfortable solution for achieving a beautiful smile. Invisalign is also a quicker option, with most treatments lasting between 12 and 18 months.
