If you aren’t sure if you want to align your smile because you think braces are just for teens, our West Cobb Orthodontics team is here to change your mind set! Braces are for adults as well, and we are happy to share four reasons with you as to why it’s smart to align your smile at this age.

No. 1: Every smile is important
Everyone deserves to be proud of their smile, even you! Imagine living a life where you love your appearance and you’re not afraid to show off your pearly whites. This will boost your self-confidence and give you the self-value you need.

No. 2: Teeth move at every age, even when they’re healthy
Even if you had straight teeth growing up, it is very possible for your teeth to become misaligned as an adult. Your teeth move more often than you think they do, even if they are healthy and strong. This is why orthodontics is a great idea as an adult. With braces, you can keep your straight and beautiful smile for a lifetime—just remember to wear your retainer as recommended.

No. 3: Teeth misalignments can cause major dental problems
Misaligned teeth can alter your oral health more than you know. If your teeth are crooked, they are harder to clean, which means there is a high chance that plaque and bacteria build up on your smile each day and hardly get removed. If this happens, your smile is extremely vulnerable to tooth decay and gum disease.

No. 4: Today braces are better, cheaper, and less noticeable
With modern technology in the world today, braces can quickly align your smile without putting a dent in your wallet and without being noticeable. There are many options that can quietly align your smile, like Invisalign®, ClearCorrect®, ceramic braces, and lingual braces.

Now that you know that braces are a good choice for your adult smile, it’s time to call 678-401-4321 today and schedule an appointment with our caring orthodontist, Dr. William K. Farrar, Jr.! Our team will be happy to meet with you, examine your smile, and discuss your orthodontic options. We look forward to helping you!
