It’s never too late for adults to get braces

So you didn’t get braces as a child or teen, but now you’re ready to change your smile and start living your most confident life, huh? That’s a life-changing decision! We’re in full support. Our team at Greater Northwest Orthodontics would love to guide you through it.

More adults are proudly getting braces than ever before. According to the American Association of Orthodontists, the number of adult orthodontic patients is at an all time high.

It’s safe to say that more people are understanding the true value of orthodontic treatment, and realizing that braces and Invisalign® are more affordable than they once were! Braces aren’t just for kids and teens.

Here’s why it’s a great time to get braces as an adult:

Top 4 Reasons to Get Braces (for Adults)

1. Experience newfound confidence.

If you’re an adult who feels self-conscious when you smile, or you’ve always dreamed of having a bright and genuine smile, that’s more than enough reason to get braces! You deserve to live with confidence, and smiling plays a huge role in that.

Dr. Andrews crafts handmade smiles for adults just like you. Orthodontic treatment will help you put your best smile forward, so you don’t have to hide your teeth, hold back the laughter or avoid situations that put you in the spotlight. You deserve to do it all and more.

2. Adults have options!

One of the reasons many adults have been hesitant to undergo orthodontic treatment in the past is because they don’t necessarily want to wear traditional braces. While we truly believe getting braces as an adult is nothing to be ashamed of, we understand the desire for a more discreet treatment method.

That’s why we provide options for our adult patients. Choose from different types of braces, including Damon™ self-ligating braces or Invisalign® clear aligners – a form of invisible braces.

Clear aligners use a series of virtually-invisible, clear, custom-made plastic aligners to align the teeth and bite, and create a beautiful smile without the appearance of braces. No matter what your day holds, you can wear clear aligners confidently, knowing that your treatment is virtually undetectable.

More adults are getting braces than ever before, because they’re not limited to traditional braces. Adults have options nowadays!

3. Believe it or not, braces are affordable.

Did you know braces for adults are a lot more affordable than when you were a child? Not only have new, efficient technologies enabled us to reduce treatment costs, but we also offer a number of affordable payment plans to help you manage the cost of braces.

You can also get started with a complimentary exam. We truly do everything we can to make the cost of adult braces affordable for our communities in Augusta and Grovetown, GA.

4. It’s about your quality of life too!

Many people don’t even realize that their smile is hindering their quality of life. The alignment of your teeth and jaw bones has everything to do with your vital functions: breathing, sleeping and eating.

When the teeth are all aligned in a healthy row, and the top jaw bone is properly aligned with the bottom jaw bone, things get a lot easier. Breathing is easier; speech improves; chewing and biting is more comfortable and digestion is smoother.

We go beyond the surface to create beautiful smiles. Dr. Andrews leverages our patients’ growth, development, and personality to achieve exceptional results in the shortest time possible.

So, why get braces?

Living a greater quality of life is one of the most important reasons to get braces. It’s not just about ‘straight teeth’; it’s about living your best life, breathing your easiest, and waking up as the happiest you.

More adults are getting braces, because they’re realizing the true value of orthodontic treatment – so if you waited for braces as an adult, you’re in luck.
