Whether you believe it or not, braces aren’t just for teens anymore! Braces are now encouraged for adults as well, and our Orthodontic Associates of New England team is here to help you feel better about aligning your smile as an adult. Here are four reasons why aligning your smile as an adult is a good idea:

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
As an adult, you can’t keep your teeth from moving. They move each day and they continue to shift and change. The only way to keep your smile aligned is by first straightening it with braces and then wearing a retainer when recommended.

No. 3: Teeth misalignments can cause major dental problems
Gum disease and tooth decay are huge dental issues that can destroy your oral health. If you have crooked teeth, plaque and bacteria gather in the hidden and hard-to-reach areas of your mouth and they begin to develop these dental issues. If you have a straight smile, you will have a better chance at avoiding these issues altogether.

No. 4: Today braces are better, cheaper, and less noticeable
There’s no better time to align your smile than today! Orthodontics are more successful, affordable, and unnoticeable than ever. You also have many appliance options that can help you feel more comfortable about the treatment. Some of those options include Invisalign®, ClearCorrect®, lingual braces, and ceramic braces.
