Not long ago, dentures were considered a part of aging, so keeping teeth strong, healthy, and looking good was not as high of a priority as it is today. Now we understand that if we properly care for our teeth, there’s a good chance they’ll be with us our entire lives. There’s also the fact that today’s braces are made to be less noticeable and more wearer friendly. Gone is the mandatory “metal-mouth” look (though traditional metal braces are still available). There’s also the important matter of health. Left untreated, misaligned teeth can lead to a number of serious health issues including headaches, jaw pain, increased incidence of tooth decay and periodontal disease, and other issues.

There are a wide variety of orthodontic options available now. Which to choose depend upon an individual needs, lifestyle, and budget.

Transparent aligners have opened up a whole new world of orthodontic treatment. The nearly-invisible look of clear aligners has made them an extremely popular option for adults. The trays are completely clear, and even if you need additional alignment aids such as attachments, which are “bumps” of dental bonding material, they blend in with the natural color of the tooth. In addition, clear aligners don’t interfere with eating or speaking, and they’re less likely to irritate soft tissue surrounding the teeth.

 Traditional braces are a system of brackets bonded directly to the front of the teeth. The brackets act like handles, holding “arch wires” that move the teeth. The brackets are often connected with a system of bands, spacers, springs, and other mechanical appliances to gradually move and align the teeth. The length of treatment differs from patient to patient, but on average, the desired results can be reached in 2 years.

 Ceramic braces pack all the tooth-alignment power of traditional braces, but have are less noticeable, thanks to tooth-colored or clear brackets that blend in with your teeth. Any patient who would benefit from wearing traditional metal braces would be a good candidate for ceramic braces. The average time to achieve the desired results is 2 years.

 Lingual braces are positioned behind the teeth instead of in front of them. They offer the power and treatment speed of traditional metal or ceramic braces, but are nearly invisible without close inspection.

Your teeth are no longer growing, which means you may have to wear braces for a longer period of time, as they will shift slowly. The average adult wears braces for 18 months to three years. Once your braces are removed, you may need to wear a retainer to maintain the results of your treatment. While there is no definite timescale for wearing braces, the average length tends to be between 1 and 2 years for most adults.  This time includes regular consultations with your orthodontist to check the progress of your teeth and tighten the braces where needed.  Once you orthodontics treatment is finished and you have straight teeth again, it is important to ensure you look after them and clean them on a regular basis.

Technically not. The types of braces available today can be worn by anyone. However, there are some age-related concerns about orthodontic treatment itself for adults. Adult patients often have conditions younger patients don’t suffer from, such as insufficient bone between the roots for adequate blood supply, mild gingivitis, and marginal bone loss. The bones are also harder and no longer growing, unlike those of children and teens. This can cause the teeth to take longer to adjust to their new positions.

Don’t expect to be completely finished with visits to the dentist! Almost all patients need to wear a retainer after they get their braces off to keep them from slowly shifting out of place. Your dentist will monitor your teeth alignment even after your braces come off.

You may need to go in more frequently in the beginning, so your dentist can adjust the braces and make sure you’re taking good care of them. If your treatment is progressing well and you’re properly caring for your teeth, your dentist might decide that you only need to come in every eight weeks. The frequency of visits varies for every individual case.

As mentioned previously, braces used to be more commonly associated with teenagers, but around 40% of people getting braces currently are adults. There is in fact no age limit for getting braces. As long as your teeth and gums are in good health, you’ll be able to get orthodontics treatments. The straighter your teeth are, the less time you will need to wear braces for. If you have a few teeth out of place but have a general good level of dental health, you should consider orthodontics treatment.
