One out of every three of Dr. Normand Bach’s patients is an adult!

Orthodontic treatments are very popular these days. Thanks to technological advances, the available hardware is now more effective and more discreet than ever. However, there’s still a lot of misinformation going around regarding the various treatments. Many people still think that only teenagers can reap the benefits of an orthodontic appliance. If you’re one of those who think that investing in the health of their teeth isn’t worthwhile because it’s too late, you better think again!

Long gone are the days when we used to lose all our teeth by a certain age. Now, by visiting a dentist regularly and by making sure to take good care of our teeth, we can expect to have healthy teeth right up to the end of our life. That’s great news for all those who would like to improve their smile, but are hesitant to do anything about it because of their age. In fact, more than 25 percent of the patients receiving orthodontic treatment are adults, and that figure is steadily on the rise.

The existence of more aesthetically pleasing treatment options is another reason more and more adults are deciding to take the leap. Whether you’re a teenager or an adult, wearing braces often means making a compromise in terms of your appearance. The good news is that several treatment options are available for those looking to improve their smile while still maintaining an attractive, well-groomed appearance. The Invisalign treatment is one example. It employs a removable transparent aligner made of thermoplastic material that’s worn over the teeth. Besides being very discreet, this type of treatment offers several other advantages.

However, it’s important to understand that this type of appliance isn’t suitable for all malocclusions. In certain more-difficult-to-treat cases, it will be necessary to wear braces. But there’s no reason to despair! Transparent braces are also available and they offer the same benefits as the traditional metal type.

Don’t forget: whether you need a full dental rehabilitation treatment or simply want to improve the appearance of your smile, you’ll need to schedule a consultation with Dr. Normand Bach, Orthodontist.
