Thinking of getting braces? If you think teens have excuses for not wearing braces, then you should speak to an adult! At Lakes Orthodontics we believe that it is never too late to smile with confidence. Many adults had treatment as children and we hope that you consider us if you have made the decision to finally get the perfect smile you always dreamed of. Braces for adults have come a long way. Metal braces are no longer the only option. Today we have a wide range of appliances design to cater to a broad range of lifestyles.
Don’t think you’re alone! Many of our adult patients are now getting braces because unlike their parents they can now afford it. Not only that but today braces are covered by many different types of health insurances.
The two most common excuses are:
Excuse 1: “Braces are for kids, I’m a grown up and I would look ridiculous with a mouth full of metal!”
Although this may have been the case in years past did you know that there are more adults in orthodontic treatment now than ever before? There are so many options now for adults to improve their smile that are less noticeable than traditional metal braces such as Invisalign and clear braces. Plus, what is worse, going through a treatment that is barely noticeable with Invisalign or clear braces and ending up with a beautiful smile. Or, would you rather be embarrassed every single day of your life with a smile that you are not happy to show?
Excuse 2: “I don’t have time to go to my appointments.”
Adults live in a very busy world: wake up early, get to work, exercise, and let’s not forget the kids! Who has time to sit in a Dr.’s office for hours waiting for their appointment? At Lakes Orthodontics, we understand your busy lifestyle and we cater to busy professionals:
