It’s not just teenagers who wear braces anymore. If you’re unhappy with the alignment of your teeth, there’s never been a better time to do something about it. There are a wide range of treatment options on offer. We’re positive that you’ll find a realignment solution that suits you perfectly.
There are lots of great things about having orthodontic treatment as an adult.
You’ll probably get more choice
Though many teenagers are eligible for teeth realignment treatment on the NHS, NHS treatment is limited to traditional fixed braces. As an adult, you’ll have the freedom to choose the treatment programme that’s the best fit for you in terms of your teeth, the time scale, the aesthetics and your budget.
You’ll have the benefit of adult wisdom
We don’t think it’s unfair to say that teenagers can’t always be relied on to make the best decisions concerning their long-term health! As an adult you may be more inclined to invest in a long-term project of creating and maintaining your ideal smile. You may find it easier to motivate yourself to wear an aligner or retainer, to maintain suitable oral hygiene habits and to avoid certain foods.
You’ll have more confidence
One of the great benefits of growing up is feeling more comfortable with who you are as a person. Many adults feel a lot happier about the idea of wearing a brace than they might’ve done when they were a teenager.
You’ll get the smile you always wanted
It’s absolutely never too late to choose to invest in the teeth you’ve always wanted! The major benefit of having orthodontic treatment as an adult is that you’ll be able to enjoy all the benefits of a brand new smile.
