5 Reasons Why Now is the Perfect Time for Adults to Get Braces

Oct 25, 2021 | News, Treatment Advancements

According to the American Association of Orthodontists, one in four of today’s orthodontic patients are adults. That’s a lot more than in years past. So why are more adults getting orthodontic treatment this year than ever before?

Whether you’re a young adult, a parent, a recent empty nester, or a senior, there’s never been a better time to get braces. Here’s why.

1. New braces, who dis?

Gone are the days of 8-tracks, rotary-dial phones, and clunky braces. Instead, we now have iPods, smart phones, and smart, custom braces that make straightening your teeth a breeze. Sure, new custom digital braces are something for us orthodontists to geek out about, but why should you care? Well, how do fewer appointments, greater comfort, and a shorter treatment time sound to you? These new braces make treatment not only easier, but faster and more comfortable.

Just check out these sexy new treatment options. 

InBrace
InBrace is the newest way to get the smile you’ve always wanted without anybody knowing about it. No aligners to worry about, no braces to see, just Smartwires working behind the scenes 24/7 to get you to the finish line.

Stride Custom Braces by KL Owen
When it comes to braces, one size fits all isn’t the answer. With Stride custom digital braces, one size fits one. These braces are made just for you, which means shorter appointments, 40% fewer visits, and less time overall.

Express treatment with GRIN remote monitoring
With traditional braces, patients come in every 6-8 weeks. With all our new technologies and GRIN remote monitoring, you come in when you need to. Period. If you’re ready for a new wire after 2 weeks, you can come in and get it. If you don’t need to come in that soon, we won’t waste your time. 

2. Mask up.

We’re not a huge fan of looking like a reverse Batman all the time, but it’s pretty obvious that masks are going to stick around for a while longer. But look on the bright side! With a mask covering the lower half of your face, no one will even see your braces! Then in a year or two when masks finally become history, you’ll rip yours off and voila! A gorgeous new smile.

3. Smile for the webcam.

Remember the good old days when you didn’t spend half your time staring at yourself in a webcam? If you’re tired of seeing a close-up of your face 24/7, a more awesome smile may be the perfect fix. Step up your Zoom game with custom braces.

4. Kick your midlife crisis’ butt.

Dating, pursuing a career, making new friends—there are times in life when you want to look and feel your best. But being an adult can wear down your confidence. In an act of self-love, maybe it’s time to change the way you see yourself. Treat yourself to a better self-image. Whether you’re heading into a midlife crisis or just wishing you could love yourself in the mirror, you’d be surprised at the difference a beautiful smile can make.

5. It’s your turn to smile.

Maybe you put all your kids through braces, but never got them yourself. Maybe you’ve always wanted a better smile, but you never got around to it. Or maybe you did have braces before, but your teeth have moved since then. Well, guess what? It’s your turn to smile! Whether you’re a 30-something or a retiree, there’s never been a better time to get braces. Polish up your career, boost your self-confidence, or add a special shine to your golden years by straightening your teeth and improving your natural smile.
