Think braces are just for kids? Think again. Thanks to advances in orthodontic treatment, more and more people are now opting for adult braces.
Orthodontic treatment can drastically improve your appearance and self-esteem. However, some people missed out on getting braces as a child, due to their parents not being able to afford orthodontic treatment, or simply just not getting around to it. Orthodontists have discovered that retainers must be worn for much longer than recommended previously, so some adults who had braces as a child may find their teeth have shifted back to their original positions. Luckily, tooth alignment can be changed at any age, and it’s never too late to get that stunning smile.
A straighter smile can make the world of difference to your face. It can also improve the health of your teeth and gums. Crooked teeth can contribute to tooth decay, wear of the tooth enamel, headaches, jaw joint pain, and gum and bone loss. And thanks to new orthodontic techniques that can greatly reduce treatment time and discomfort, there’s never been a better time to straighten your smile.
Invisible Braces for Adults
When considering adult braces, many people worry about the impact of wearing highly visible, metal braces past their teens. Fortunately, new orthodontic options are now available that are virtually invisible to the onlooker, so no-one would even know you are wearing braces!
Types of invisible braces for adults include:
- Invisalign: The Invisalign system moves your teeth into the desired position using clear aliginers which are virtually invisible from the outside.
- Damon Clear: The revolutionary Damon System that combines tieless brackets with high technology archwires is now available with 100% clear brackets.
- Incognito, Harmony & Win: These braces are placed behind your teeth, meaning they are virtually undetectable to onlookers.
- Inspire! Ice Clear Braces: Inspire! Ice Clear Braces are crafted from clear sapphire, making them more aesthetically pleasing than metal alternatives.
0% Flexible Finance
One concern some patients have when considering adult braces is how to afford the cost of the treatment. At Hampstead Orthodontic Practice, we understand this, and have created a variety of flexible finance options starting from 0% finance, that can be split into monthly or quarterly payments. The practice is also open until later on Monday, Wednesday and Thursday evenings, to make things more convenient for those who find it difficult to take time off work.
