Braces are a kids game, right? That’s what we tend to think. The image of an awkward teen with head gear pops into out heads, but believe it or not, it’s never too late to fix your smile. In fact, straight teeth and a healthy mouth help to prevent aging as well as reduce the effects of aging!
If you’re worried about the headgear you’ll be glad to know that realigning has come a long way to becoming practically invisible. There are ceramic braces which blend in to your tooth color, lingual braces which go behind the teeth, and plastic aligners which are almost invisible as they’re made of clear plastic. Taking care of misalignment is a personal choice, but there are so many benefits beyond the cosmetic that there’s no reason to avoid it, especially with how easy it is nowadays. Misaligned teeth often take extra dental care that, if missed, lead to more dental problems- especially gum disease. If you want to take charge of your mouth and health read more about it here.
