Should you consider getting adult braces? It's not too late!
Kent Street Dental Centre – Ottawa’s Dentist for Braces.
You may not have received braces treatment when you are a child. However, this does not mean it is too late to consider getting braces as an adult.
Here are 4 reasons why adults may want to consider getting braces:
1. For Aesthetics
You may have always wanted straighter teeth. Your smile is one of the first things people might notice about you. If you are not happy with the current appearance of your smile, adult braces may be an option for you. Talk to your dentist about the best options if you are trying to decide about braces before your wedding or other special occasion.
2. Oral health
Many oral health issues can stem from crooked teeth. Teeth that are not straight may be difficult to clean, and therefore can become diseased. Brushing and flossing alone may not be enough to keep your smile healthy if you have crooked teeth.
3. Jaw Pain
Are you experiencing pain such as headaches, ear aches, issues chewing and facial pain? Braces may be able to help correct these issues caused by misalignment. You can experience wear and tear on your teeth which can also cause larger oral health issues.
4. Orthodontic Options
There are many different orthodontic options for your smile. These include: traditional metal braces, Invisalign clear aligners, lingual braces (behind the teeth), and clear braces. These braces options have different costs and different coverage levels based on your dental plan.
