You are never too old to achieve the smile of your dreams, and Peach Orthodontics is here to help. Often times, people think braces are just meant for teenagers when in reality they are a reliable corrective treatment for people of all ages. Braces aren’t just about cosmetics, they are also instrumental in improving oral health. So whether it be a misalignment or an imperfection that you’ve noticed for years, you can take control of the situation today and start this time-tested and patient-approved corrective treatment.
How Much Do Braces Cost?
Braces are an investment in yourself. They can help boost your self-esteem while also boosting your oral health. We believe that corrective treatment can improve your quality of life, and that is why we pride ourselves on offering a variety of flexible financing plans that can help you get you into your braces now. The cost of braces does vary from patient to patient, depending on how long treatment lasts.
In addition to our financing plans, many insurances will now work with our office to help you easily budget for this necessity. There are fewer roadblocks than ever to you achieving the smile that you have dreamed of. Sit down with Dr. Brent and our knowledgeable team and figure out a plan that works for you.
Am I Too Old For Braces?
We subscribe to the belief, and medical truth, that you are never too old to have a straight and healthy smile. In fact, many adults are now seeking orthodontic treatment to achieve the smile they’ve always wanted or even to fix an issue caused by an injury they sustained in adulthood. As long as you have a healthy mouth in need of correction, you are a perfect candidate for braces.
With options such as clear or ceramic braces, adults who want braces but aren’t sure about the aesthetic of them now have no reason not to finally schedule a consultation and start their journey to a better smile.
Why Should Adults Get Braces?
More adults are getting braces because they realize the impact their smile has on their life, socially and professionally. Adults are good candidates for braces as long as their gums and bones are healthy. The jaw has already fully formed, so we don’t have to worry about how growing teeth will shift your smile. In addition, it’s more likely that improvements made by braces will be sustained.
While there are certain challenges that may need to be addressed during treatment with a fully formed jaw, it’s nothing that hasn’t been faced before and overcome by the fine-tuning of braces over the last few decades. Perfect smiles and healthy mouths have no age, and we are here to help you achieve the smile you’ve always wanted.
What Type of Time Frame Am I Looking At?
Treatment length varies from patient to patient depending on the severity of the problems being corrected. Typically, treatment ranges from around one to two years. Sometimes treatment length for adults is longer than that of children, just because it takes the appliances a little longer to shift what has been set for years.
However, braces are emerging as a popular choice among adults for a reason. They provide the fastest and most efficient results. We have found that our patients are very willing to get braces for one or two years in exchange for a lifetime of beautiful smiles.
What Type of Braces Should I Get?
You should get whatever braces you feel the most comfortable with. When you come in for your first consultation, you will be able to discuss your options thoroughly with Dr. Brent and see what fits best into your lifestyle.
Many adults favor clear or ceramic braces because they are more discreet than traditional metal braces. However, sometimes these braces are not as sturdy as the metal option, so adults who don’t want to worry about the possibility of broken brackets may decide to go the more traditional route. We also are proud to offer our Iconix® Aesthetic braces, which are champagne-colored with clear ligatures to make sure you go through treatment in style. These braces are just as durable as the traditional metal braces with a more aesthetically pleasing twist.
