Touch Up Treatment

Adult Touch Up Braces

At Frost Orthodontics, we believe there isn’t an age limit on when someone can or should have braces. In fact, there are currently over a million people, aged 18 and older, with braces that also don’t believe they are too old to have the smile they’ve always wanted!

According to the American Association of Orthodontics, the number of adults seeking orthodontic procedures is growing significantly. This means that some people who have been hiding their smiles their whole lives are now discovering a variety of orthodontic treatments that both address their issues and perfectly fit in with their lifestyle and needs.

It is a common misconception that if you seek orthodontic treatment, you’ll be locked into two to three years of having to wear Invisalign or braces. Adult touch up braces, in particular, are ideal if you have small gaps or other minor alignment issues that need to be addressed. These short-term braces are required for less than two years (depending on your case) and come in a variety of customizable and comfortable options:

  • Traditional metal braces
  • Invisalign braces
  • Ceramic braces
  • Lingual (Behind the Tooth) braces

So whether you have had braces before or not, a quick touch up may be all you need to get the smile you’ve always dreamed of! Contact Frost Orthodontics today to schedule an appointment!

Reasons to Touch Up Your Smile No Matter
What Age You Are

Adult Invisalign and Ceramic Braces are barely noticeable

Over the years, braces have evolved to more than just traditional metal. Now you can choose from lighter, more comfortable, and less noticeable options like ceramic and Invisalign. Adult Invisaligns are custom-fitted over the teeth without any metal or wires, which also means they are removable. You won’t have any food restrictions and will be able to brush and floss like normal. Ceramic braces, on the other hand, are also still popular because the brackets are much smaller than in the past and do not require bands.

Both options are ideal because they are less noticeable! Not only are the braces less noticeable to others, but because of their size and fit, they’re less noticeable to you and result in less irritation.

Having braces helps to keep your teeth healthier as you age

Teeth can shift out of place at any age. You may have once had naturally straight teeth or perhaps braces to make them straight, but as you age, your body goes through changes; this includes your tooth alignment. So when your mouth becomes too crowded, this creates a crossbite or misaligned teeth that become harder to clean. When food debris and plaque builds up, there is an increased chance of gum disease, especially as you get older. Having straight teeth will make flossing and brushing easier, improving your overall oral hygiene!

Untreated alignment issues can get worse and lead to other problems

If you leave your teeth uncorrected, it can affect more than just your self esteem. The mouth is the first step of the digestive process and having an improper bite can mean that you aren’t chewing your food properly. This can lead to gastrointestinal problems or uneven wear on teeth over time, making chewing more difficult. You may also suffer from jaw pain or pressure at points on your jaw that are caused by crooked teeth. We advise that you treat these issues with adult touch up braces before they become worse.

Straight teeth build confidence!

It used to be a fact of life that everyone will lose their teeth at some point. However, with new technologies and better treatments, people are keeping their teeth for much, much longer. Shouldn’t you then have the smile you’ve always wanted? Having straight teeth will give you a better quality of life and help build your confidence for years to come!
