Adult braces in Oak Lawn

If you think braces are only for kids, think again! The American Association of Orthodontists (AAO) reports that one in four orthodontic patients is an adult. In the past 30 years, the number of adults getting braces has risen 24% according to the Los Angeles Times. The AAO also indicates that 75% of adults experienced improvements in their career or personal relationships after getting braces.

Braces at any age

Aligned teeth and a proper bite can transform your health and confidence at any age. Some important reasons to consider braces or Invisalign® treatment as an adult include:

  • Teeth that are crowded or spaced apart can lead to both tooth decay and gum disease.
  • A bad bite or malocclusion causes teeth to fit together poorly. This can lead to bad oral health problems as well as issues that are problematic for everyday life, like eating and brushing your teeth.
  • Misaligned teeth can cause jaw pain and pressure.
  • Poor teeth alignment has been linked to headaches, ear pain, TMJ disorders, and even digestive problems.
  • Orthodontic problems can lead to low self-esteem, a lack of confidence, and insecurity. Everyone deserves to feel confident when they smile!
