Braces for Adults in Greensboro, NC
Braces aren’t just for teenagers. Adults can enjoy the benefits of orthodontic treatment with a confident smile and enhanced dental health. Irvin Orthodontics offers braces to the adults of Greensboro, High Point and Winston-Salem, NC, who are looking for a way to improve their smile with straighter teeth.
What are Braces?
Braces are orthodontic appliances used to straighten the teeth; the two most common forms being traditional metal braces and Invisalign (sometimes referred to as clear braces.). Traditional metal braces involve having an orthodontist, like Dr. Alan Irvin, attach small brackets to the surface of the teeth and connect the brackets with a thin wire. Together, the brackets and wires work to reposition your teeth over time. With visits to the orthodontist, the wire will be adjusted to ensure your teeth are shifted as quickly and effectively as possible, with long-lasting results in mind.
Why Do Adults Get Braces?
Adult orthodontics is soaring in popularity as more and more adults are seeking options to enhance their smile, confidents, and life with a better smile. Some of the most common reasons for adult braces include:
- To restore a smile after teeth have shifted over time.
- Relieve jaw pain and pressure from misaligned teeth.
- Enhance your appearance with a more beautiful smile.
- Fix crowding, crooked teeth or teeth with gaps.
- Improve dental health through proper spacing and alignment of the teeth. Overcrowded and crooked teeth can contribute to dental decay and gum disease.
