3 Benefits of Adult Orthodontics

Not every adult wants to wear braces, most feel like they’re too old. They would much rather live the rest of their life feeling unhappy with their smile. At Dental Excellence of Blue Bell, we offer two adult orthodontic options that might change your mind. Not only are they convenient, but they work fast. Instead of focusing on your actual treatment, we thought it might be helpful to focus on the benefits that will come following your treatment. Before you brush off adult orthodontics, consider these benefits.

1. Better Oral Health and Overall Health

When you straighten your teeth, it reduces the tiny spaces where plaque can hide which can eventually lead to cavities or gum disease. If you do happen to get gum disease, it can lead to diabetes or heart disease. Once your teeth are straight and spaced correctly, it’s easy to remove plaque from between the teeth with floss. Crowding or crookedness, on the other hand, can make it difficult to remove. By simply straightening your teeth with adult orthodontics, you’re improving both your oral health and overall health. This will help you spend less time at the dental office in the future and help you maintain a healthy smile for life!

2. Improve Your Smile

If we told you that in as little as six months you could have a brand new smile, would you sacrifice wearing braces for that time? Six months is only a small fraction of your life that makes dramatic changes that improve your smile for the rest of your life! Is your smile holding back your confidence or forcing you to hide your smile during life’s most important moments? Once we complete your adult orthodontic treatment, your new smile will provide you with a brand new wave of self-confidence. Get ready to show off your pearly whites at every opportunity you can get. 

3. Change Your Life

Once you no longer feel the need to hide your smile all the time, you will see how drastically your life changes. You will speak up in meetings at work more or even take the lead. You will also flourish in social situations. No longer do you have to double think about speaking up because you feel embarrassed about your smile. Who knows? An orthodontic treatment can help you get that promotion you’ve been chasing or help you meet the love of your life.
