We provide comprehensive orthodontic treatment for adults who want a better and healthier-looking smile. However, orthodontics tend to put off adults for a variety of reasons. Here are some common reasons adult patients mention to us as to why they stay away from smile correction.
” I think I am too old”. When talking about orthodontic treatment, it is usually related to children and teens so a majority of adults might think that it is too late for them to correct their smile. Since its invention, it has never been said that adults are too old to receive the treatment they need to have a better smile.
Another common excuse adults like to say is that they dislike metal braces because it will make them look immature. Although brackets and wires are traditionally used, there are other options available for discreet and unnoticeable orthodontic treatment. Treatments like Invisalign and clear braces. These treatments have increasingly become popular and with today’s orthodontic treatment, adults can feel better about it because it is aesthetically pleasing.
