Tom Cruise got them at age 40. Nicholas Cage 39. Danny Glover when he was 59 and Faye Dunaway aged 61. Even Gwen Stefani spent much of her 30s in them. It’s never too late to get started and have a perfect smile. Adult braces are more common than you think. Here at Norwest Orthodontics, one in five orthodontic patients today is over the age of 18.
Braces as an adult can correct an imperfect smile giving you more confidence, fix an overbite or under bite you’ve disliked for years or even give your teeth a tune up to get your smile looking its most stellar.
Healthy teeth, bones, and gums respond well to orthodontic treatment at almost any age. And thanks to today’s less visible and more comfortable braces, people no longer feel embarrassed about wearing braces as an adult. Today’s braces are better looking, or even virtually invisible compared to the mouth full of metal teenagers of the 80’s or 90’s had to endure.
Norwest Orthodontics provides a tailored treatment plan to straighten teeth and align your jaws for a perfect smile. Some custom treatment options may include:
Invisalign – an invisible brace that is aesthetically pleasing, comfortable, and hygienic to deliver incredible results.
Insignia – a computerised system that combines digital treatment planning with specially made brackets and wires tailored to your specific dental anatomy.
With today’s smaller, less visible, more comfortable brackets and custom treatments, orthodontics for adults have never been more appealing.
If you have been contemplating braces but have been worried about taking the plunge, why not come for an appointment to discuss your options further. Contact the team at Norwest Orthodontics today, on 02 9672 6113.
