Orthodontic Fact #8


Orthodontic Fact #8 Statistically speaking, over 1 million Americans over the age of 18 consult orthodontic clinics to help align their teeth.

Though many people think of braces as being for preteens and teenagers, the reality is that adults often use them as well. Sometimes, adults did not have the chance when they were younger to correct misalignments in their teeth, and they would like to do so now.

If you are an adult in need of an orthodontist, once you meet with one, it will be likely that you will have two main options. For most people, the two orthodontic options are traditional metal braces and Invisalign. A lot of adults will not want traditional metal braces, because these are thought to be more for teenagers and younger kids. However, traditional metal braces really are better for correcting severe misalignments in the teeth, if an adult would happen to have those.

Many individuals over the age of 18 will prefer Invisalign, because you will be able to correct your teeth without anyone necessarily knowing. For individuals who do not have misalignments that are too severe and are more concerned about the cosmetic aspect, Invisalign could be the right choice, especially for those who are out in the professional world and would like to have the aligners be as inconspicuous as possible for social reasons. You can discuss your options with your orthodontist, and he or she will give you suggestions.
