Have you noticed that more of your friends or colleagues have Invisalign or braces? That may be because more adults are discovering the benefits of having a healthy, brilliant smile. According to the American Association of Orthodontists (AAO), one in three orthodontic patients today are over 18 years old.
At Bovenizer & Baker Orthodontics, we love that more adults are investing in the long-term health of their smiles. Let’s look at why more adults are getting orthodontic treatment and how it can benefit you!
The Popularity of Braces in Adulthood
It’s no surprise that people from their 20s to their 70s are discovering how braces can improve their lives. There are many reasons adults are taking advantage of orthodontic treatment, including:
Treatment Technology: Orthodontic systems like Invisalign, Spark Aligners, and Damon Braces use advanced technologies to provide more comfortable, discreet treatment. Cutting-edge systems also work faster and require fewer check-in appointments.
Less Stigma: Adult braces have become hot trends on social media platforms like Instagram and TikTok. Hundreds of thousands of people proudly post their treatment progress photos under #adultbraces to show the stellar results they’ve achieved with braces. Sharing your journey with others can help you feel like you’re not alone in treating your teeth.
Virtual Work: The pandemic required many of us to sit on video conference calls for hours a day. Seeing themselves on screen all day made many people feel like they wanted to invest in their smiles. The British Orthodontic Society (BOS) studied this phenomenon in-depth and dubbed it the Zoom Boom.
It’s always a great idea to ensure your teeth are as healthy as possible. Discover how orthodontics can save you money and schedule your free consultation today!
Health Benefits: Orthodontic Treatment for Adults
Straight teeth can give you a confidence boost and help you look stunning! More importantly, braces are also an essential part of your overall oral health. No matter how old you are, if you have a misaligned bite, crooked teeth, crowded teeth, or other orthodontic issues, you may be at an increased risk of the following:
• Tooth decay
• Gum disease
• Enamel damage
• Tooth wear
• Chewing, breath, and swallowing difficulties
You can avoid severe dental issues by getting orthodontic treatment. Not only that, but your teeth will also feel and look great!
