Many adults often wonder if they're too old for braces, the answer is absolutely not! There is no age limit on having a healthy, confident smile. Braces can offer far more benefits than simply straightening your teeth. Although they've generally been thought of as a cosmetic procedure, there are many health benefits associated with braces.
For most adults, getting braces is usually tied to seeking increased self-esteem. How you feel about your smile can have a huge impact on your self-confidence and mental health, after all.
Studies even show that irregular teeth can have an impact on selecting a partner and may actually influence how attractive we find a potential mate.
Once the braces are removed, however, you'll have a smile you can truly be proud of showing off to the world! It's been said that the simple act of smiling can make you happier and reduce stress.
Overlapping, crowded, or crooked teeth can be difficult to properly clean, as there are more areas where a toothbrush simply doesn't fit. Bacteria likes to find its way into every nook and cranny and starts to build up between teeth causing bad breath and can eventually lead to more serious problems such as gum disease, cavities, and tooth decay.
Braces will help straighten your teeth and improve their position in your mouth, allowing you easier access to remove plaque and achieve a cleaner, brighter smile.
Unfortunately, crowded, overlapping, and crooked teeth can also lead to unpleasant breath. As previously mentioned, it can be hard to brush and floss around those particular areas, causing food particles to build up in hard-to-reach places.
Braces create fewer spaces between your teeth, allowing you to chew your food into smaller pieces. Those smaller pieces make it possible for your stomach to digest much faster, as it is able to work more efficiently, compared to processing larger bites.
Less Risk of Injury
Another benefit of braces is reducing the risk of a tooth-related injury. Some accidents can occur while playing sports or other unexpected accidents, resulting in a chipped or cracked tooth. A tooth injury is more likely to occur if teeth are protruding more than others. With braces, any protruding teeth are re-aligned and become better protected.
Misaligned teeth might not be the only thing that makes you feel self-conscious. The way your tongue moves against your teeth can affect how you pronounce certain words and impact your overall speech, leaving you to feel embarrassed.
One of the most unexpected benefits of braces I that they can help improve your speech!
