Adult Orthodontics

A Growing Trend

In the past, orthodontic treatment was primarily associated with teenagers and children. However, in recent years, there has been a significant rise in the number of adults seeking orthodontic care. According to the American Association of Orthodontists, 1 in 3 orthodontic patients today are adults. This growing trend can be attributed to various factors, including increased awareness of the benefits of a well-aligned smile, advancements in orthodontic technology, and changing societal perceptions.

The Benefits of Adult Orthodontics

Straightening your teeth as an adult can bring numerous benefits beyond just an attractive smile. Here are a few advantages of adult orthodontics:

  1. Improved oral health: Properly aligned teeth are easier to clean, reducing the risk of tooth decay, gum disease, and other oral health issues.
  2. Boosted self-confidence: A beautiful, straight smile can significantly enhance your self-esteem and confidence in both personal and professional settings.
  3. Better function: Misaligned teeth can cause difficulty in chewing and speaking, which can be alleviated through orthodontic treatment.

Treatment Options for Adults

At Longmont Braces, we understand that adults have different needs and preferences when it comes to orthodontic treatment. That’s why we offer a range of options tailored to suit individual lifestyles and aesthetic preferences:

  • Traditional metal braces: Classic and effective, metal braces are a reliable option for comprehensive tooth movement.
  • Clear ceramic braces: These tooth-colored braces blend in with your natural teeth, providing a more discreet appearance.
  • Lingual braces: Placed behind the teeth, lingual braces are virtually invisible from the outside.
  • Clear aligners: Removable, transparent plastic trays gradually shift your teeth into the desired position, offering a nearly invisible solution.
