Traditional Braces

Not Just For Kids or Teenagers Anymore!

Contrary to popular belief, braces are not just an appropriate dental correction option for kids and teenagers; in fact, dental professionals claim that it is never too late in life to optimize your dental health and improve the beauty of your smile.

Today, braces are becoming immensely popular among adults. On average, in excess of one million adults currently wear braces. If your teeth are misaligned, it is likely that you make a good candidate for braces.

If you have an interest in this orthodontic treatment, we here at American Dental in Fitzgerald are standing by to assist you.

What Problems Do Braces Correct?

If you are an adult that never received braces as a child, there are many dental problems that you may be experiencing that can be easily corrected through the use of traditional braces. These include the following:

  • Crooked Teeth
  • Overbites
  • Crowded Teeth
  • Underbites
  • Disorders of the Jaw Joint
  • Inappropriate Positioning of the Jaw

All of these problems may result in the onset of further complications. Prime examples of these issues include the development of dental caries, the onset of periodontal disease, pain and discomfort in the ears, the development of headaches, problems with the bite, chewing issues, and even speech problems.

To overcome orthodontic problems and to avoid the development of additional health complications, traditional braces are the way to go!

What to Expect

While traditional braces are an ideal choice for adults, it is important to understand that the treatment is likely to take a bit longer than a treatment that a child or teenager receives.

On average, adults that opt for traditional braces will need to undergo the dental treatment for anywhere from a year and a half to up to three years. Immediately after the removal of the braces, you may have to wear a retainer. This is a clear dental device that slides over the teeth in a discreet fashion that helps to retain the positive results created by the braces.

Traditional braces often include those that are composed of metal; however, you may opt for those that are created with clear ceramic, concealed braces that utilize brackets, and/or completely invisible braces.
