6 Reasons Adults Get Braces

Posted On: February 12, 2018

At Fry Orthodontics, we work with adults of all ages to develop a treatment plan that fits their schedule and smile goals. Our advanced technology makes getting braces as an adult easy, affordable, and convenient.

#1: Career Goals

When it comes to your career, putting your best smile forward is always a good idea. A healthy smile can help increase confidence and have a positive impact on your success at work.

Many adults opt for Invisalign treatment because Invisalign aligners are clear and practically invisible. If your career involves a lot of face-to-face interaction, or if you’re just feeling self-conscious about your smile, we can help.

#2: Getting Married

There’s nothing more important than looking and feeling great on your wedding day. Braces or Invisalign treatments from Fry Orthodontics can help you get the smile you want before you walk down the aisle.

You can achieve the look you’ve always wanted and feel confident in front of friends and family. Plus, with an average treatment time of 16 months, you can achieve your smile goals fast. Schedule a free exam to ensure your treatment schedule fits your wedding timeline.

#3: Health Conditions

Braces have proven to be a beneficial treatment option for some common health conditions.

  • TMJ (Temporomandibular Joint)

    The temporomandibular joint attaches the jaw to the skull and helps you chew. Pain or sensitivity around the jaw or the ears can be a result of Temporomandibular Joint Disorder (TMD). This condition can cause tooth damage over time. If you are experiencing jaw or tooth pain, talk to your dentist first to rule out other dental issues.

  • Sleep Apnea

    Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), is a disorder that pauses breath and causes shallow breathing during sleep. Throat muscles relax and the airway becomes blocked, which restricts the amount of air that reaches your lungs.

Orthodontic appliances are commonly used to help people with mild to moderate sleep apnea. These appliances hold the lower jaw forward to keep the airway open.

#4: Teeth Have Shifted Since Last Treatment

Braces or Invisalign can be a great option for adults who completed orthodontic treatment as teens but have experienced a shift in their smile.

Without regular retainer wear, teeth will continue to shift over time.

#5: No Previous Orthodontic Treatment

Many adults make the decision to get braces because they did not have access to orthodontic treatment growing up.

Healthy teeth can be moved at any age, and today’s advanced technologies often mean shorter treatment times.

#6: Today’s Treatments Are Affordable and Convenient

Whether you choose braces or Invisalign, you can feel confident about a treatment plan that fits your lifestyle and budget.

At Fry Orthodontics, we offer affordable treatment options, with payments as low as $189 per month with no down payment.
