When Do Adults Need Braces?

While many people may consider braces to be for children and teens, a growing number of adults have recognized the benefits of opting for treatment later in life. If you deal with any of the following, you’re likely a candidate for adult orthodontic treatment:

  • ◘ Crooked or crowded teeth
  • ◘ Protruding teeth
  • ◘ Gaps between teeth
  • ◘ Overbite or underbite, also known as malocclusion
  • ◘ Difficulty eating, speaking, or cleaning your teeth
  • ◘ Headaches and muscle pain around the jaw

Braces Options for Adult Teeth

Whether you prefer a near-invisible corrective appliance or traditional metal braces, Black Orthodontics in Asheville has orthodontics options anyone can be comfortable in. If your orthodontist decides you need corrective treatment, they’ll talk you through all the choices available to you, including:

  • Invisalign®: An invisible, removable alternative to braces, Invisalign uses two tray “aligners” to move your teeth into place. You’ll wear the trays for about 22 hours a day, removing them when eating and brushing your teeth. You’ll also conduct a progress evaluation with your orthodontist every 10 to 16 weeks. Invisalign is an excellent choice for adults, children and teens with cosmetic concerns, as most people won’t even notice you’re wearing the aligners.
  • Damon System braces: The Damon System uses self-ligating brackets. Unlike brackets in traditional metal braces that need elastics to help hold the archwire in place, self-ligating braces use a sliding mechanism that keeps the archwire from needing retightening. The result is fewer visits to your orthodontist and a faster treatment time.
  • Lingual braces: Lingual braces are perhaps the most discreet form of braces for extensive treatment. Instead of bonding the brackets to the front of your teeth, we’ll install them behind your teeth facing your tongue. Lingual braces are the best option for treating complex concerns like overbites and crowded teeth while building confidence in your smile.
