Why Braces for Adults are Recommended by Orthodontics Experts

Braces can improve many dental care issues, no matter your age or the stage of the problem. In fact, around one million Americans over the age of 18 have braces. To see if braces are right for you, check out the following facts.

Orthodontics Problems that Benefit from Braces

The only way to find out if braces are right for you is to have your smile evaluated by your dentist. If braces are recommended, you need to see a family orthodontics expert called an orthodontist for treatment. Ask your dentist to recommend orthodontists in Indiana who specialize in braces for adults. If your orthodontics concerns are left untreated, they can cause tooth decay, gum disease, misaligned bite, chewing problems, headaches, and earaches. In general, an orthodontist will place braces to correct these concerns:

  • Crooked teeth
  • Overcrowded teeth
  • Underbite
  • Overbite
  • A misaligned jaw
  • Major jaw joint disorders like TMJ

How Adult Orthodontics are Different than Braces for Kids

According to family orthodontics experts, adult orthodontics can offer the same benefits as braces for kids, but there’s one major difference in treatment. For adult cases, treatment time tends to be longer, averaging between 18 months and three years. But the rest of the requirements are the same for everyone, such as the need for regular adjustments and wearing a retainer after treatment.

The Cost of Adult Orthodontics

While you may think orthodontics are expensive, you can usually find affordable braces near you. Costs can vary widely depending on your dental problems, type of treatment chosen, and even the location of the orthodontist. That’s why you should compare several orthodontists in Indiana to compare the price of treatment. Also, many orthodontists accept insurance, offer financing options, and take dental discount plans like DentRite to make affordable braces a reality.
