Why You Should Align Your Smile With Braces as an Adult

Braces are not just for teens anymore—they are for adults as well! So, if you have a crooked, misaligned smile, our Ortho 360 team is happy to explain the reasons why you should consider aligning your chompers.

No. 1: Every smile is important
A smile is the first thing someone notices about another person, which is why each smile is important. We want you to feel proud of your smile and never be afraid to show it off. Braces can make that happen by aligning your teeth and giving you the perfect smile you have always wanted!

No. 2: Teeth move at every age, even when they’re healthy
Yes, your teeth move each day, whether you notice it or not, and sooner or later you will have an even more crooked and misaligned smile. It’s time to stop the shifting of your teeth and finally put them in the correct position through braces. After your treatment is completed, you can keep your teeth from moving by wearing a retainer.

No. 3: Teeth misalignments can cause major dental problems
Misaligned teeth can alter your oral health more than you know. If your teeth are crooked, they are harder to clean, which means there is a high chance that plaque and bacteria build up on your smile each day and hardly get removed. If this happens, your smile is extremely vulnerable to tooth decay and gum disease.

No. 4: Today braces are better, cheaper, and less noticeable
Many adults today are afraid of aligning their smile with braces because they do not want a metal-filled mouth. Well, we are thrilled to tell you that you have additional options other than metal braces, like Invisalign®, ClearCorrect®, lingual braces, and ceramic braces. Braces nowadays are also cheaper and they quickly and successfully give you the results you are looking for.
