orthodontic careMore adults than ever are wearing braces. But what is driving adults to get the orthodontic care that they deserve?

Most people think of orthodontic care as something you seek in your early teenage years or as a tweener to correct misaligned teeth, but the truth is over the last few years we are seeing more people with adult braces than ever before. What are compelling adults to finally come see our orthodontic specialist Dr. Ryan Nowlin?

Loving Your Smile

It is natural to think that adults are looking to braces to move them toward their smile goals. Who doesn’t want a great smile? Of course, there are plenty of adults who are lining up for our trusted orthodontic care simply for the aesthetics, but that is not the only motivator.

Braces can help to align teeth perfectly. Invisalign aligners are barely noticeable, work quickly to straighten teeth, and are more comfortable to wear than traditional braces. It makes sense that any adult who wants to change their smile would see our orthodontic specialist who specializes in Invisalign.

However, a great smile is only part of the story when it comes to why more adults than ever are seeking out orthodontic care services. What else is driving the uptick in adult patients?

Headaches, Jaw Aches, Neck Aches

Most people do not realize that an overbite, underbite, or crossbite can put a great deal of stress and strain on your jaw and neck, and even cause headaches. A perfectly straight smile is awesome, but not having to live in discomfort from misaligned teeth is even better.

Many adults are finding themselves seeking out orthodontic care and adult braces so that they can get the discomfort of misaligned teeth under control. Repairing the misalignment takes the pressure off the jaw muscles and neck muscles and relieves tension headaches.

Of course, the by-product of treating the misalignment is a vastly improved aesthetic. Most importantly, your health improves. Orthodontics for adults also comes with the added benefits of:

  • Improving the health of your teeth.
  • Properly aligned teeth are easier to care for.
  • You feel more confident in your smile.
