Reasons to get braces as an adult
There’s no secret rule that says adults can’t get braces. The idea that braces are just for kids and teens is a common, unfortunate misconception. Just because you’re an adult doesn’t mean you have to live with a jaw misalignment or crooked teeth for the rest of your life!
If you’re wondering, “why do people get braces as an adult,” this one’s for you.
1. Braces for adults are a short term treatment for lifelong results
Think about how many years you have left in your life—20, 30, 40, 50 years?! Now think about how long orthodontic treatment takes—18 months? Maybe 24 months?
Don’t you think undergoing an 18 month treatment is worth the 20 to 50 years you have left to enjoy your smile? We’d say so.
2. You’re not limited to traditional braces!
Another misconception is the idea that traditional braces are the only type of braces. This couldn’t be further from the truth—at least at EA Smiles.
While there are many proud adults with metal braces, there are also plenty of adults with clear braces, Invisalign® clear aligners and SureSmile® Clear aligners. You’re not limited to one type of braces with us. We’re all about options.
3. Braces create healthy smiles!
One of the most important benefits of adult braces is the way they impact your oral health. Overbites, misaligned teeth, and jaw misalignments can progress and worsen over the years, leading to more serious oral health challenges.
When teeth are crooked or overlapping each other, this can make it difficult to brush and floss properly. Your toothbrush can’t reach all surfaces of your teeth, and it may be difficult to floss between some teeth. When you leave these hard-to-reach spaces unbrushed and unflossed, this can lead to bacteria buildup, gum disease and cavities.
Braces for adults can help you avoid these health conditions.
4. Enjoy the confidence of a beautiful smile
Your sense of self-confidence and self-esteem have a lot to do with how you feel about your smile. Beautiful, aligned teeth will give you the confidence to share your smile during some of life’s best moments. You won’t have to hide at the back for the group photo or cover your mouth to hide your smile.
We all deserve to smile proudly! Braces can help you do that.
5. Adult braces are more affordable
Did you know metal braces on adults are a lot more affordable than when you were a child? And with us, you don’t have to pay for your braces upfront in one lump sum. We offer affordable payment plans to help you manage the cost of braces.
We believe everyone deserves to experience a bright smile. Our practice offers a range of payment options for braces, including in-house financing for $0 down and affordable monthly payments, as well as outside financing with Lending USA, CareCredit, and Orthobanc.
The best way to find out how much your braces will cost and how much your insurance covers (if you have insurance) is by booking your free, no-obligation consultation.
