You may be thinking that you are too old to “fix your teeth.” You aren’t. Orthodontics for adults isn’t just more popular than ever. It’s also a great thing for you to do for yourself.

Our Indiana orthodontists are ready to help you give your smile new life. Contact any of our locations to get started for one or more of the reasons below.

1. Long-Term Oral Health

By straightening your teeth, you can make it easier to prevent problems and maintain your smile. Straight teeth are easier to floss and brush, which means you will do a better job of removing plaque and food particles. This also makes your regular checkups more comfortable.

2. Correct Bite Issues

Bite issues can cause unneeded wear and tear on your teeth. They also can contribute to teeth grinding and TMJ issues, which can include jaw pain and frequent headaches.

3. Prevent Further Problems

The wear and tear mentioned above could cause teeth to crack or break. This can allow infections to take hold. Improving the alignment of your teeth can reduce your risk of these problems.

4. Prepare for Restorative Treatments

This isn’t as common, but sometimes straightening your teeth can make it easier to get restorative services. If you have teeth that have shifted because you are missing teeth, you may want to reposition them before getting replacement for the teeth you lost.

5. Boost Self-Confidence

As you get older, you may feel self-conscious about your smile, especially when meeting new people. Completing orthodontic care can give you the kind of confident smile that you want people to see.
