Research shows more and more adults are turning to orthodontic treatment for the significant improvements it makes in both their personal and professional lives.
At The Brace Orthodontic Treatment in London, we treat lots of adult patients with discreet orthodontic treatment methods so they can enjoy the benefits of treatment without needing to feel self-conscious about wearing braces.
Developments in orthodontic technology have given adult patients more choice when it comes to teeth straightening options. No longer do you have to worry about being fitted with a mouth full of metal; these days orthodontic appliances are so discreet people won’t even know you’re having treatment.
Invisalign: one of the most popular orthodontic treatment methods for adults is Invisalign. These virtually invisible aligners help move teeth into position faster than traditional metal braces.
Lingual braces: these braces use the same system as traditional metal braces but are fitted to the back surface of your teeth. This means no one can see them.
Ceramic braces: the brackets used with ceramic braces are translucent so they aren’t noticeable when fitted to the front of your teeth.
A survey conducted on behalf of the American Association of Orthodontists (AAO) asked adult orthodontic patients about their pre-treatment concerns. Some of the most common answers were:
However, once these adult patients started having treatment, most said their concerns were no longer relevant. Instead, 75% reported improvements in their career or personal relationships due to an increase in self-confidence, while 92% said they would recommend orthodontic treatment to other adults.
