The Rise in Popularity of Braces for Adults

posted May 29th, 2018

At Thistle Dental, we have noticed more and more of our patients are coming to us because they’re interested in getting adult braces. This doesn’t come as a surprise because braces for adults have become very popular in recent years, but why is this?

At Thistle Dental, we have noticed more and more of our patients are coming to us because they’re interested in getting adult braces. This doesn’t come as a surprise because braces for adults have become very popular in recent years, but why is this?

Why are Braces for Adults Becoming More Popular?

  • Many People Have Them - One of the main reasons braces for adults are becoming increasingly popular is that, simply, they’re relatively common. It isn’t unusual to see an adult with braces anymore and this gives others a confidence boost. Whereas some people didn’t want to be seen with braces once they reached adulthood, it is now considered a lot more normal.

  • They’re Discrete and Not Noticeable - Thanks to advancements in dental procedures and brace technology, braces for adults are now extremely discrete. As braces are not really noticeable anymore, a lot more adults are confident enough to wear them.

  • There Are Different Types Available - There are a lot of different types of adult braces available, which means a number of dental issues can be fixed. At Thistle Dental we offer traditional braces, removable braces and clear fixed braces for adults. Each of these has specific uses and benefits, and our dental professionals can provide you with recommendations.

  • They’re Affordable - A lot of people assume that getting braces as an adult is extremely costly, but this isn’t the case. There’s no reason why adult braces can’t be an affordable and cost effective dental treatment.

  • There’s a Large Emphasis on Having the Perfect Smile - In today’s society, there’s a large emphasis on having the perfect smile and super straight teeth. If you’re someone who is unhappy with their smile, this can cause your self-esteem to suffer. This focus on teeth has led to a lot of adults wanting to improve their smile with braces.

There are a number of reasons as to why braces for adults have become more popular and it’s largely to do with just how simple and straightforward treatment is. Getting adult braces is no longer a lengthy or complex process. In fact, it’s all very easy. At Thistle Dental, we offer a wide range of dental treatments including adult braces.
