I'm an Adult: Are Clear Braces Right for Me?

South Miami Dentist explains the benefits of clear braces.

Did you know that your teeth can reveal far more information about you than you think? You can estimate a person's age, physical health, and sex just by glancing at his or her teeth. Furthermore, studies have also shown that teeth greatly influence self-esteem and ratings of physical attractiveness. There's no question that teeth are important!  This is just one of the many reasons more and more adults are getting braces. The aesthetic benefits of a nice straight smile are undeniable. But the benefits of having a healthy smile through quality dental care and orthodontics (braces) go beyond just vanity. Crooked teeth, improper jaw positioning, and a misaligned bite can cause a multitude of problems as you age. We believe that braces are as much an investment in your oral health as they are a future confidence booster.

While cosmetic reasons for getting adult braces are both valid and compelling, they pale in comparison to the oral and physical health reasons for doing so. Perhaps you needed braces as a child but never had the opportunity, so you continue to struggle with various orthodontic concerns. Alternatively, maybe you didn't need braces as a kid but have developed problems as you've aged. Some people's teeth shift more over time, and the natural growth of your jaw can also cause positioning issues. If you need braces or think you may need braces, don’t wait! Some of the problems associated with malocclusion (improper bite) include:

  • Headaches
  • Earaches
  • Problems with chewing, speaking, and/or biting
  • Gastrointestinal problems from inability to chew food properly
  • Jaw pain
  • Trouble cleaning the teeth properly, leading to plaque and food accumulation between teeth
  • Increased incidence of tooth decay and periodontal disease
  • Gum and bone erosion
  • Irregular wear of the tooth enamel
  • Facial pain
  • Temporomandibular joint disorders (TMD, often incorrectly called "TMJ")

Adult braces are a valuable investment in your long-term health. With the Invisalign clear aligners a straight smile is achievable for everyone. We can make you customized clear plastic aligners that work similar to conventional braces. You'll put in a new mouthpiece every couple of weeks. You can brush, floss, and eat normally. Best of all, they are nearly impossible to see; have no wires or brackets; there are no food restrictions; they are easy to clean.
