Articles Should You Get Braces As an Adult if You Had them as a Child?
Many of us think of braces as a treatment for children and teenagers. However, adult treatment is becoming increasingly popular. If you had braces as a child, you may be reticent to wear them again, but adult treatment can be hugely beneficial.
Should I get braces if I had them as a child?
If you’re an adult who is thinking about getting braces having had then as a child, it’s wise to consider your options carefully. In times gone by, the range of treatments was very limited, and modern braces may offer better results. If you’ve experienced relapse after having your braces removed, or you’re still not happy with your smile, we may recommend wearing braces again, but it’s highly likely that you’ll be looking at a different kind of brace. We have a raft of amazing treatments available today, and we can tailor our recommendations to suit your orthodontic needs, as well as your budget and your personal preferences. It’s very common for adults to express an interest in clear or invisible braces, for example.
Are braces the best option for me?
If you have crooked or crowded teeth, or your front teeth stick out a little further than you’d like, you may be thinking about paying your dentist a visit. It may be possible to address the cosmetic aspect of orthodontic issues with treatments like veneers, but the only way of actually moving the teeth and correcting the problem is wearing a brace. If you are interested in modern braces, which are suited to adults, we will be happy to go through some options with you, explain how they work and give you a better idea of the pros and cons.
