Types of Braces for Adults
Thanks to advances in dental materials and techniques, more and more adults are enjoying the benefits of orthodontic care. Odhner Orthodontics will help you explore the types of orthodontic braces for adults including metal, ceramic, and lingual.
Some patients choose orthodontic correction because they are tired of hiding their smile when they laugh or when taking pictures. Others seek treatment because their dentist told them they are starting to see gum problems or abnormal tooth wear from improper tooth alignment.
Adult teeth straightening, with a correct bite, will not only look better but will improve the function of your mouth as well as your overall health. Even though adults are no longer growing, you can still benefit from orthodontic braces treatment. Your age is not a factor as healthy teeth can be moved at any age.
