Advantages of Adult Orthodontic Treatment
Posted on 03/01/2022

There are many advantages to undergoing orthodontic treatment at any age, and there’s no reason to worry about starting the journey in adulthood. At Choonara Orthodontics in Johannesburg, we recognize the unique advantages of treating adults, such as more dedication to the healthy habits and routines necessary to see the best outcome from your treatment. Whether you get braces or Invisalign, adults have a greater commitment to improving the aesthetics of their smiles. In terms of oral health, straightening the teeth makes a world of difference. Here are some of the benefits you can expect from adult orthodontic treatment.

Better Habits, Better Outcome

Adults make very good orthodontic patients because they generally have a better baseline of healthy dental habits. While wearing appliances like braces or retainers, it will be easier to get the results you desire by keeping a consistent schedule, keeping the appliance clean and cared for, and wearing it for the appropriate amount of time.

Good-Looking Braces Choices

For adults, the idea of clunky metal braces with colorful rubber bands probably doesn’t sound so good. Now that it is becoming increasingly common to undergo orthodontic treatment as an adult, there are many more subtle and attractive braces choices, such as tooth-colored ceramic braces, lingual braces, and Invisalign.

Lower the Risk of Decay and Disease

If you haven’t already straightened your teeth with braces, here is one more reason to do so. Having straighter teeth means having a healthier mouth, especially as you age and your risk for inflammation and oral disease goes up. Patients who have had their mild to moderate orthodontic issues treated experience better oral health across the board.

Boost Your Confidence

Whatever your goals are in life, and wherever you are on your journey, a confidence boost is always welcome. With straighter teeth and a brighter smile, you may find you feel more energized, positive, and even more productive. Our self-confidence level can have a major impact on all areas of our life, and improving our smile is one of the best ways to boost it while reaping health benefits as well.
