Am I Too Old for Braces?

Once your smile has fully developed, you might assume that it’s too late to get braces. Fortunately, our innovative orthodontic treatment makes getting adult braces in Siler City more convenient and effective than ever before. It’s never too late to get a straighter, healthier, and more aesthetically appealing smile with adult braces tailored to you.

As an adult, you have plenty of reasons to choose braces. Other than improving the appearance of your smile, orthodontic care can address several oral health issues. Here are some common signs that you might benefit from orthodontic treatment:

  • Difficulty chewing food
  • Breathing problems
  • Missing teeth
  • Crowded teeth
  • Disproportionate teeth and jaws compared to the rest of your face
  • Jaws that shift, make sounds, protrude, or are recessed

Our orthodontic treatments make it easier to brush and floss your teeth, resulting in better oral health all around.

Orthodontic Treatments for Adults

But over time, your teeth can shift back into their original positions and result in crooked teeth again. This often happens if you don’t regularly wear a retainer to keep your teeth aligned after orthodontic treatment.

Because of these issues, you might need to invest in another round of orthodontic treatment as an adult to correct a bad bite or crooked teeth. On the other hand, you may be undergoing orthodontic treatment for the first time to enhance your smile and boost self-confidence. Regardless of your motivation, we offer quality aligners and braces for Siler City adults and people of all ages.

Dr. Johnson may recommend orthodontic treatments to realign teeth as needed before or after the placement of dental implants, crowns, or veneers. She begins by carrying out a comprehensive exam to determine your health and goals. We offer a variety of treatment options, including:

Conventional Braces: This appliance is made of metal and is the most effective if you have a severe misalignment. To guide your teeth into proper position, our dentist bonds metal brackets to each tooth with a sturdy wire connecting them to provide the necessary tension.

Clear Ceramic Braces: Clear ceramic braces are more discreet than traditional ones as they use tooth-colored brackets and bands to straighten teeth.

Invisalign®: Dr. Johnson is a certified Invisalign provider. This treatment uses a series of clear plastic trays that comfortably fit your smile. Each clear aligner uses pinpointed pressure to guide your teeth into the correct position gradually. We often recommend Invisalign aligners for mild to moderate alignment concerns.

Retainers: A retainer is usually the final step in your orthodontic treatment journey. While adult braces are generally effective, your teeth are at some risk of moving back to their original position. After your braces have come off, Dr. Johnson will provide you with a customized retainer. Wearing it for the recommended period is essential for maintaining your straightened smile and preventing relapse.

Orthognathic Surgery Management: Dr. Johnson works with a trusted surgeon to accomplish complex treatments that can’t be solved with orthodontics alone. If the upper and lower jaws are significantly out of position, surgery can align them so that your braces will provide successful results. Typically, orthognathic surgery takes place in the middle of orthodontic treatment to improve your ability to speak, bite, and chew.
