Orthodontics for Adults

Are you an adult who has misaligned teeth but you’re reluctant to get braces? It seems that braces are so closely associated with preteens and teenagers that there’s a stigma around getting them as an adult. 

Fortunately for you, this blog is here to do away with that stigma so that you and every other adult who wants to straighten their smile can feel a bit more confident about getting the treatment they need. 

Here are just a few of the many reasons why you should opt for straight teeth no matter how old you are.

They’re Not Permanent

You may feel a bit shy about flashing a smile while you are in treatment to straighten your teeth, but keep in mind that it won’t be long until you’re smiling as often as humanly possible once your teeth are perfectly straight. You’re already self-conscious about your misaligned teeth; why feel that way any longer when you never have to again? Why not consider invisible Clear Aligner Therapy like Invisalign or CandidPro so that no one has to know you are actively treating your crooked smile?

They’re Not Just About Straightening Your Smile

Keep in mind that the cosmetic aspect of straighter teeth may get the most attention, but there’s a lot more to them than that. Misaligned teeth can be difficult to keep clean, and therefore, they’re more susceptible to decay and other problems. Also misaligned teeth can lead to destruction of the gum and bone that hold your teeth in your head and can cause premature wearing down or breakage.

Opting for straight teeth can help you to avoid a whole host of issues with your oral health and even your overall health.

You’ll Finally Have that Smile You’ve Always Wanted

You don’t need to be ashamed of your teeth anymore. You deserve to smile with total confidence, and getting straight teeth at any age can help you do that.

I've been a patient of Dr. Piper's for the last 19 years so it's very obvious that I've been a very very satisfied patient. I had an excellent full check-up today with x-rays and everything was perfect. Perfect because I've been going consistently and following their experts on dental care, cleaning and good health! Bravo 👏 👏 👏

Dr. Piper and staff are always very professional, I have been a patient for over 15 years, and happy about it. Just got my teeth cleaned and checked recently, Sandra is friendly and thorough, and the office felt very clean which is important.

Staff were fast and attentive, didn't wait long before I saw Dr. Piper. The office is clean and organized. Was a great decision to use this practice and will be visiting again. Not a single issue. Cannot recommend enough.
