Vintage clothes are divine.
Vintage smiles, not so much.
If you think orthodontics is something just for kids and teens, think again. With the invention of clear braces and clear aligners, more and more adults are finally going after the smile they’ve always wanted. And not only does treatment help our adult patients feel better about their overall appearance, but it also improves their self-confidence and their oral health for a lifetime.
Most people are excellent candidates for orthodontic treatment, and you may be, too. If you’re interested in high-quality adult orthodontics in Miami Beach, Miami Shores, North Beach, or South Beach then our experts at Miami Beach Orthodontics are ready to help!
Braces Aren’t Just for Teenagers
According to the AAO, 20% of all orthodontic patients in America are more than 21 years of age. While traditionally, braces were seen as a dental treatment just for teenagers, today’s adult patients realize that adults have options, too.
Benefits of Orthodontic Treatment
No matter your age, straighter teeth provide multiple benefits for your oral health as well as your personal well-being. For adults, the advantages are even greater. They include:
Enhanced appearance & smile
Improved oral health; Increased self-confidence
Prevention of oral health issues like gum disease and tooth decay
Prevention of bone loss caused by improperly positioned teeth
Improved ability to bite and chew
Available Treatment Options for Adults
If the idea of wearing metal braces is keeping you from a beautiful set of teeth, then you’ll be glad to know that advancements in modern orthodontics mean you now have multiple options. In addition to traditional metal braces, we offer these amazing options below for those who prefer a more discreet treatment method.
Clear Aligners use a series of virtually invisible clear aligner trays to move your teeth into their optimal position. The treatment result is equal to traditional braces and is typically achieved in less time.
Clear braces were designed to work just like traditional metal braces, but they’re made with clear or tooth-colored pieces that make the braces nearly undetectable.
Lingual or hidden braces are placed behind your teeth. Lingual braces offer the same benefits as traditional braces but are hidden from view.
