Let Braces Straighten You Out

Braces are devices that can straighten teeth, improve smiles and change lives. You probably know someone that wears braces but you can’t tell because some braces today are unnoticeable. 

Adults with braces?

Did you know that it is estimated that 20% of orthodontic patients are over the age of 18? Yep, that means it’s not uncommon for adults to get braces. It could be that their parents couldn’t afford braces when they were young, they didn’t like the idea of what they would look like with metal braces, or maybe today they are unhappy with their smile. Regardless of the reason, your affordable dental center in Cambridge, MA can let you know if you are a candidate for dental braces no matter how old or young you are. 

What braces can do for you. 

Braces can achieve a uniform look and can straighten crooked or misaligned teeth. They can also correct irregular bites, crowding, close gaps between teeth, bring lips and teeth to a proper alignment and they are also used in dental implant and cosmetic dentistry. Braces for the younger crowd can help with jaws growing properly and for permanent teeth coming in correctly. Your Cambridge dentist uses braces to help greatly improve smiles. 

Choices in braces.

Today there are a variety of types of braces to choose from. Some are attached to the teeth while others are devices that are removable. One of the most popular types of braces requested at our dental center in Cambridge, MA is Invisalign®. These braces are affordable, removable, comfortable, easy to use, and they are virtually invisible. 

Who puts on braces?

An orthodontist is a specialist at teeth straightening. After a comprehensive exam they can determine the right type of braces for their patients. They work one on one with patients throughout the period when the braces are worn, making adjustments until the teeth are just right. The length of time a patient has to wear braces is dependent on how much straightening has to be done. 

Make the call.

If you think you or a child are a candidate for braces, contact your dentist in Cambridge and let our professionals give you their expert opinion.
We’ll have you smiling in no time!
