Studies show that 82% of US adults agree that the first thing people notice about others is their smile. Oftentimes, adults with not-so-perfect smiles will cover their mouths when they laugh or smile and feel uncomfortable in social settings. In fact, 30% of adults state that they are self-conscious about their teeth. Fortunately, adults can now achieve beautiful, confident smiles through orthodontic treatment more discreetly than ever before.
There is a misconception that it’s “too late” for adults to receive orthodontic treatment. The truth is the percentage of adults receiving orthodontic treatment grows each year! It’s never too late to straighten your smile as long as your teeth are healthy. Chelian Orthodontics offers many treatment options such as Invisalign (invisible & removable braces) and clear braces! Our consultations are free so you can come in and see which option would best fit your needs and lifestyle.
Orthodontic treatment not only improves your physical appearance but can improve your oral and overall health as well. Periodontal disease stems from crooked teeth. When teeth are crooked, they are more difficult to keep clean, causing poor oral hygiene and bad breath. Straightening teeth allows you to brush and floss much easier, improving your oral hygiene and thus reducing your chances of periodontal disease.
Whether the reason is cosmetic or disease prevention, it is always a win-win for adults to achieve a straight smile. If you’ve been thinking about orthodontic treatment, don’t hesitate any longer! Call us for a free, no-hassle consultation. You’ll be glad you did.
