braces for adults in puyallup wa

“Braces for adults? I’m too old.”

There’s no such thing as being too old for braces. More and more people in their 60s, 70s, and 80s are using braces, and we at Orthodontic Excellence in Puyallup WA love it! For our adult patients its usually the same thing: 1) they always wanted to straighten their teeth and now in their adult life they’re finally going to go through with it, and/or 2) now they can afford it! There’s so many great reasons to undergo orthodontic treatment, or, to even come in and meet with our orthodontist(s) for an initial evaluation!

6 Great Reasons Why Adults Should Get Braces

  1. Every smile is important: imagine how your life could be if you had a smile you were proud of!
  2. Teeth can move at any age: even if you had braces in the past, you may need them again.
  3. To avoid serious problems with their teeth and mouth: misaligned teeth can contribute to things like plaque, periodontal disease, tooth decay, gum and bone loss, wear of tooth enamel, and/pr TMJ/TMD pain.
  4. Avoid health issues: not correcting your teeth can also lead to other issues like headaches, ear pain, and stomach issues.
  5. Braces today are better, cheaper, and less noticeable: braces have come a long, lighter, more comfortable, cheaper, and less noticeable way with systems like ceramic braces and Invisalign.
  6. Now you can afford them: when you were a child maybe your parents couldn’t afford braces, come explore our payment plans here at Orthodontic Excellence.
