Adult Treatment: Transforming Your Smile
Our teeth shift as we get older, regardless of whether we’ve had braces when we were younger. Sometimes they shift rapidly and move enough to cause concern that our smile isn’t what it once was or all it could be. At Ebert Orthodontics in Fort Collins, CO, a healthy and confident smile is not just for young people, and many adults might want a smile transformation also! Healthy tooth alignment also helps stave off excessive plaque buildup that might come with misaligned teeth, leading to gum disease or other health issues later on.
Today about one million adult Americans and Canadians wear braces, according to the Academy of General Dentistry. The Los Angeles Times reported in 2011 that adult braces are on the rise, with a 24 percent increase from 1989 through 2008. Many celebrities have worn braces as adults, putting to rest the notion that braces are only for kids and teenagers.
Many braces and orthodontic treatment options are available for adults, and your Fort Collins, CO, orthodontist can answer any questions you might have!
Metal Braces: the cost hasn’t changed much over the years when adjusting for inflation, and they get the job done just as they always have. There are also gold braces available. These offer a more muted, softer appearance than traditional metal braces. The gold blends better with the natural color of your teeth to create a more elegant appearance.
Invisalign: practically invisible, these are removable for brushing, flossing, and eating. They can address most tooth issues that metal braces can and are useful for closing spaces, resolving crowded teeth, and correcting overbites or underbites.
