Orthodontics for Adults
You may feel weird considering braces as an adult. After all, isn’t orthodontics just for children and teens? At Rave Orthodontics, we are thrilled to break the stigma! In fact, more than 1 million American adults have braces, and that number increases every day. With modern orthodontic advancements and new technology that has increased comfort and success rate, there is no reason to wait for the smile of your dreams – at any age!
Reasons to Get Braces as an Adult
Many adults may opt for braces for cosmetic reasons – because they haven’t felt confident with their smiles – but just as many adults need orthodontic intervention to correct teeth gaps, overbite, over-crowding, jaw-related conditions (such as TMJ).
These things can have a major impact on speech, eating, and overall self-esteem. No matter how old you are, Dr. Ravassipour and his team encourage you to get a free orthodontic consult to see if braces may be right for you. Here are a couple of reasons to consider:
Types of Braces
Thanks to advancements in dentistry and orthodontics, there are more options for aligning and correcting dental issues than there were even two or three decades ago. While your orthodontist can help you decide which option is best or your or your child’s unique dental needs, Rave Orthodontics provides:
A flexible and discreet orthodontic option, Invisalign gives patients a way to straighten their smiles without drawing attention to their mouths – something many working professionals desire. In addition, Invisalign can be removed when eating or for special occasions, giving you control over their treatment. Many patients start seeing results in just a few weeks, with the average treatment period being 12 months.
A successful and affordable option for adults is traditional metal braces. While less popular than a clear alignment system, our team recommends these for patients who have severe misalignment or spacing issues, or patients who will need to have a longer treatment period (longer than 12 months).
These braces are braces that are placed on the back of your teeth. These braces work the same as traditional braces to straighten teeth but are less visible, allowing patients to have the discreetness of clear alignment with the results and affordability of traditional metal braces.
