As an adult, you might think that your options for having your teeth fixed are limited. You might think orthodontics are just for teenagers, but this not so. Many adults choose to have orthodontic treatments done later in life, and there are many benefits of adult orthodontic treatment. These are a few reasons why it is never too late to work with an orthodontist.
Choose Your Treatment
There are many choices for teenagers today as well as adult patients. As an adult, you know which treatment will integrate best into your lifestyle and you can communicate your needs with the orthodontist. At Gardner Orthodontics, we are happy to discuss treatment options and help you pick the treatment that is right for you.
Have Braces When You’re More Responsible
Some younger patients find it challenging to keep up with a good oral hygiene routine. As an adult, you can fully understand and appreciate the benefits of regular flossing and brushing to maintain optimum oral health. Healthy gums and teeth often mean your treatment time may be reduced.
Feel Confident in Your Professional Life
It is important to feel confident as a professional. Straightening teeth at any age can help boost self-esteem and enhance your communication skills knowing that your smile will be admired.
Improve Your Social Life
It can be hard to feel confident in social situations when you aren’t happy with the appearance of your teeth. Adult orthodontic treatment may help improve your social life in many ways. You might find that you are more confident when making friends or hanging out with people you already know. Your new smile will attract people as you proudly show it off in social situations or general conversations.
You Have Options
Today, there are plenty of adult-friendly orthodontic options from which to choose. If you don’t want to go the route of having traditional braces, we are happy to discuss Invisalign, clear braces or lingual braces.
Gardner Orthodontics believes it is never too late for a straight, healthy smile. If you are considering orthodontic treatment contact us at (804)282-0505 for a complimentary consultation so we can examine your mouth and discuss the best treatment options for you.
