Benefits Of A Better Smile

Braces are often thought of as something for teenagers, but this is not the case! There is no age too old for braces. If you are an adult, unhappy with your teeth and smile, let’s talk through your options. At Jaffe Orthodontics, we offer comprehensive orthodontic options for adults, including discrete and inconspicuous options. Orthodontic treatment for adults is actually very similar to teen treatment, the difference is we can make it more discrete with ceramic braces or Invisalign. Our Barrington and Portsmouth orthodontist will find the best and most appropriate treatment plan for you because we believe in the benefits of a better smile!

Every Smile Is Important

Just because you are an adult, it does not mean you don’t deserve a beautiful, straight smile. Every smile is important. As an adult, you deserve a functional smile just as much as a child or teen does. It is not less important to have straight teeth as an adult. In fact, it’s equally as important!

Your Teeth Can Shift At Any Age

Healthy teeth can actually shift and move position at any age, even if you’ve previously had braces. Teeth can move due to an injury, a specific health condition, or naturally. As an adult, your teeth may move out of place making braces an even better option! At Jaffe Orthodontics, we can assist all adults with various types of orthodontic treatments. Whether you have slightly shifted teeth or quite crooked teeth, we can help!

Avoid Serious Teeth & Mouth Problems

Straight teeth will decrease your chances of future dental and orthodontic problems. Misaligned teeth or a crossbite can create higher chances of gathering plaque, food build up, and bacteria. It is actually more difficult to clean crooked teeth because there are more tight spaces where plaque thrives and a toothbrush probably will not reach. Unfortunately, this may lead to periodontal disease or gum disease. Other dental problems may include tooth decay, bone loss, loss of tooth enamel because of wear, and TMJ/TMD pain.

Avoid Other Health Issues

Straight teeth as an adult will lead to better overall health. If you currently suffer from or may suffer from dental issues in the future, these may cause extra health issues. Tooth and mouth issues may lead to headaches, earaches, gastrointestinal problems, and more. To enjoy an overall healthy life, every aspect of your body should be healthy including your mouth and teeth.

Braces Are Cheaper Today

Braces have come a long way over the years. Not only has the technology vastly improved, but the prices are much cheaper, payment plans allow for more affordable options, and many insurance companies also cover braces. Overall, braces are more affordable in general, no matter which option you choose as an adult.

Discreet & Less Noticeable

Today, we have many different choices for adult braces, including traditional metal braces, ceramic braces, and Invisalign. For adults, we usually recommend ceramic braces or Invisalign as they are less noticeable. Ceramic braces are very discrete. They do not require colored rubber bands, making them less noticeable. The high-tech orthodontic wires that are used do not need to be tightened as frequently as traditional braces, making them one of the easiest and most comfortable orthodontic options for adults.

Invisalign is another excellent option for orthodontic appliances. It consists of clear plastic aligners that are changed every two weeks to slowly move and adjust your teeth into the correct position. These appliances can be removed to eat, drink, brush, and floss. Both ceramic braces and Invisalign are adequate options to straighten your teeth. Of course, every patient is different from the next, meaning their smile goals and orthodontic needs will be different as well.

People Live Longer

With advanced medicine and diet, people live much longer today. Why have crooked teeth or a smile you are not entirely proud of your entire life? It’s never too late to get braces! At Jaffe Orthodontics in Barrington and Portsmouth, we have patients who are in their 40s, 50s, 60s, and 70s with braces! Adults are the fastest group of patients receiving adult braces and Invisalign. Don’t wait, you too can have a straight, beautiful smile!
