Orthodontic Evaluations for Adults


If you’ve ever thought of getting braces, you probably think of wires, multi-colored brackets, rubber bands, and your teenage years. But in 2018, braces don’t look like the orthodontic treatments of the 1990’s; and there is a growing population of adults who are seeking orthodontic treatment in their twenties, thirties, and beyond. Take a look at these three reasons to pursue orthodontic evaluation as an adult:



To Help Career Goals: If your job places you in front of an audience on a regular basis, your appearance becomes as important as your message. Correcting an overbite or large spaces between your teeth can go a long way toward making you appear healthier and more attractive, even more trustworthy and reliable. It polishes your presentation in a way that a slick presentation can’t.

 

For Self-Confidence: It is not at all unusual for a forty-something mom of three to wake up one day and finally notice the tooth that has been gradually moving out of alignment for fifteen years. She still has a mental picture of her smile from twenty years ago, but it doesn’t match the reality. Having Invisalign treatment can restore her tooth alignment, allowing her to look and feel like herself once more.

 

For Dental and Overall Health: Having an incorrect bite alignment can cause pain. It can feed into TMJ/TMD, migraines, periodontal disease, and even be detrimental to your overall health. As an adult, it’s not too late to have your bite corrected with braces. Invisalign allows you to complete your treatment quickly and discreetly.



As an adult, your teeth can continue to move and change depending on your dental health. Whether you’re wondering about individual teeth or your entire bite, an orthodontic evaluation is the best way to determine whether Invisalign can work for you.
