Nobody likes to have to get braces, especially after they reach adulthood. However, our Lynnwood dentistry clinic wants to remind you of the importance of wearing braces, and the significant developments that may have been made in orthodontic technology since you were young that serve to make the experience more comfortable all around.
Firstly, today’s braces can be surprisingly unnoticeable. Through the use of clear, ceramic materials and gentle, unobtrusive structures, an orthodontist can construct a set of braces that will be invisible to the people around you. Many people can even get so comfortable with their braces that they forget they are wearing them.
Even if you had braces as a child, there is no guarantee that you won’t require them again as an adult. Your teeth can drift out of position throughout your life, and are all the more likely to do so if they were crooked in the first place. If you feel like you may be a candidate for braces, consult your dentist for more information.
