It’s never too late to invest in orthodontic braces

Once upon a time, orthodontic braces were only seen on teenagers. Nowadays, attitudes have changed, and people of all ages have realised that there’s no reason why they can’t have a perfect smile too.

Maybe you didn’t go to an orthodontist as a child, you lost your retainers or never finished treatment. Perhaps your teeth were never a problem when you were younger but have moved over time and started to look unsightly. It might be that you’re looking for a complete smile makeover, straightening and whitening included. Whatever the reason and whatever your age, braces are an easy, accessible and fantastic way of boosting your confidence.

Gwen Stefani, Emma Watson, Tom Cruise and Faye Dunaway are all examples of adults that have invested in braces, proving that they can be worn at any age and look fantastic. Of course, not all braces have to be visible, and if you’re after something more discreet, there are plenty of options you can choose from.

Depending on how severe your alignment problems are and whether you want to opt for an invisible tooth straightening solution, your options for braces include: ceramic braces, clear aligners, lingual braces, metal braces and self-ligating braces. Discussing your treatment options with an experienced orthodontist is the first step in deciding the best course of action and will help get you on your way to perfect pearly whites.

Aside from improving the appearance of your smile, investing in orthodontic treatment can help make your teeth healthier. This is because wonky teeth can make it easier for plaque to gather in between teeth and can be very difficult to remove. This can cause gum disease, cavities and a build up of bacteria that could prove detrimental to your mouth health. What’s more, periodontal disease has been linked to other health issues such as stroke and heart disease, so investing in straighter teeth also means you’re making a long-term health investment too.
