Improving your smile can refresh your outlook and boost your self-confidence. But if you are considering braces in adulthood, your physical health will benefit, too. When teeth are overcrowded or spaced too far apart, then they are more likely to develop risky conditions like tooth decay or gum disease. Crooked teeth put extra pressure on your head that can even cause jaw pain or chronic migraines.
Straight teeth are healthy teeth. When your teeth can conform to a natural pattern, it’s easier to keep them clean with regular flossing and routine maintenance. By choosing to align your teeth, you are preemptively addressing long term health complications that could wind up costing you more money than an alignment.
One of the biggest concerns we hear from adult patients about how braces will interfere with their life. Modern orthodontic treatment has come a long way since the bulky and uncomfortable braces they remember from childhood.
Contemporary braces offer a comfortable and convenient way to align your teeth. Many adult braces options are near invisible and are easy to maintain throughout your treatment. At Hess Orthodontics, we offer some of the most cutting edge adult braces:
Damon Metal Braces are one of the quickest ways to achieve a stunning smile. The Damon System uses a self-ligating wire with memory shape technology to provide a more comfortable treatment experience. Their brilliant design also lets you get faster results with fewer in-person appointments.
Damon Clear Braces are less noticeable than traditional braces. because they use the same technology as Damon Metal Braces, but they are equipped with nearly invisible components that camouflage into your smile. Damon Braces for older adults allow for a level of comfort that is light years ahead of traditional braces.
