Dental braces are orthodontic appliances that are used for proper alignment of teeth. Most users of dental braces get them at the early stage of their lives (during the teenage years). However, adults may also use them. The main function of dental braces is to cause the proper alignment of your jaws and teeth, thus giving you that pleasing smile and even bite.

All thanks to technological improvements, modern braces are very comfortable, much more comfortable than what was worn in the past.

Can you wear braces as an adult?

Yes! Miami dentists at Advanced Family Dental can prescribe suitable braces for adults with dental conditions. You’ll get good results but you may have to wear them longer than a teenager would. However, you should note that as an adult, your facial bones have stopped growing. This means that the braces may be unable to correct some problems on its own. To correct such problems, our dentists will combine the braces with other forms of treatment suitable for the condition.

Why wear dental braces?

Dental braces given at Miami serve several functions. The dentist at Advanced Family Dental will give you dental braces as corrective treatment for the following dental conditions:

  • Crooked or overcrowded teeth
  • Excess gap between the teeth
  • Overlapping of the lower teeth by upper front teeth (overbite or overjet)
  • Underbite – a condition in which your upper front teeth bite behind the lower front teeth

With your teeth and jaws properly aligned, the appearance of your dentition will improve greatly, as well as your oral health, and the way you speak, chew, and bite.
