It’s Never Too Late to Feel Your Best
Whether you had braces when you were younger and forgot to wear your retainer (we all did it!) or are looking for a brand new smile, we’ve got you covered.
Adult Braces in El Dorado & Monroe
We often hear from adult patients in and around El Dorado, AR and Monroe, LA that they’re worried it’s too late to correct their smiles with braces or Invisalign. However, you’re never too old to benefit from orthodontic treatment!
At Williams Orthodontics, adults make up about one in every five orthodontic patients. Here’s why:
Orthodontic treatment can help correct crooked teeth or gaps that you’ve been self-conscious about for years. It can give you the confidence and pride that come with straight teeth and a great smile.
Teeth Can Shift
Believe it or not, your teeth don’t stop moving once you’ve grown up. Teeth that seemed straight and aligned in youth can shift later in life.
This can lead to jaw pain, trouble brushing, or a smile you’re unhappy with.
Maintaining Dental Health
Periodontal (gum) disease is more prevalent in adults than in children. While you are wearing the orthodontic appliances, gentle forces will be applied to your teeth so they can move through their surrounding bone.
Periodontal health plays a key role in all of this; if the gum tissues are not healthy during orthodontics, bone loss can result and weaken the long-term prognosis of your teeth. So any gum disease must be brought under control before orthodontic treatment begins.
And to maintain your periodontal health, you will need to make sure to have regular professional cleanings during the orthodontics while maintaining good oral hygiene at home.
