Not Just For Kids Anymore!

September 30, 2014 | Posted in Education

Braces or orthodontics aren’t just for kids anymore.  More and more adults are choosing to have braces. Why would anyone later in life want to do that?  There are several reasons for a trip to the dentist for orthodontics:
 
· Straighter smile.  Who doesn’t want a great smile?  It is one of the first things people notice.  First impressions are everything.
 
· Shifting teeth.  As we get older, teeth tend to move a little. 
 
·  Better oral health.  Straight teeth are easier to keep clean.  Avoiding cavities and gum disease.  Teeth that bite together properly have less wear and joint problems. 
 
·  Help replace missing teeth.  Sometimes orthodontics is needed to move shifted teeth for placement of a bridge or implant.
