Orthodontic Treatment for Older Adults

If you’re unhappy with your smile but think that it’s too late to consider orthodontic treatment, you would be wrong! In the last few years, more and more adults have been choosing to get braces.

Whether it’s because their parents couldn’t afford orthodontic treatment when they were younger or because there are so many new and more subtle options for braces, more adults than ever are choosing to achieve healthy and beautiful smiles.

Adult Braces

Below are a few reasons why it’s not too later for braces for older adults:

  • Confidence is always important – As we age, confidence may begin to wane. Our bodies change and so do our teeth. If you’re embarrassed by your smile, it could have an impact on personal relationships, professional prospects, and even your emotional health. Achieving the smile that you’ve always dreamed of can be a huge confidence boost.
  • More options than ever – There are more orthodontic options today than ever before. Aside from traditional metal braces, there are also tooth-colored braces, clear braces, or Invisalign braces (clear, removable aligners). Many factors go into choosing the type of orthodontic treatment that’s right for your individual situation and circumstances. Dr. Kuhni can help you choose which option may be right for you. 
  • Oral health at every age – Crooked teeth with all their extra nooks and crannies, can be difficult to keep clean. Plaque and bacteria will build up in the hard-to-reach spots, causing dental cavities, tooth decay, and gum disease. Having a straight smile can help keep the teeth clean and disease-free.

For more information about how braces can help you as an adult or to make an appointment for an orthodontic evaluation, please contact Kuhni Orthodontic Studio today. Our office is located in Spanish Fork, Utah.
