Adult Braces Are Common At Our Practice
DO YOU FEEL LIKE YOU’VE “MISSED YOUR TIME” FOR BRACES? Maybe the idea of having that metal in your mouth brings back too many memories of your awkward days in middle school. Or, maybe you just feel like you’ll be unattractive while you’re wearing them. Not so.
Tulsa orthodontist, Dr. Herman, reminds you that you’re not alone in wondering about such feelings.
Your kids may be in the process of getting their own beautiful smiles at our Tulsa office. No need to let apprehension deter YOU from having a gorgeous smile too.
Here’s the truth of the matter… Adult braces are becoming more common every day. Not only are more adults in Tulsa choosing to straighten their teeth with braces, but there are more options available to make you feel as comfortable as possible.
The most important thing to remember is how braces will make you feel when the short time you wear them concludes! Even if your first thoughts lean towards embarrassment, you’ll enjoy a beautiful, confident smile for the rest of your life! Wearing braces may seem like a big deal to you, but most people won’t feel that way when they see you! Most people will notice the first time they see you… After that, it will be a non-issue—and people may even admire you for doing something so proactive and positive.
Other great things about orthodontic care here at our practice include all the options available to you. Traditional braces are still great for many patients, but choices can also include types of “invisible braces” like Invisalign. Lingual braces are placed on the inside of your teeth, ceramic braces offer less visible metal to your smile, and custom-fit trays like Invisalign straighten without any metal or bands at all.
With all your options for straighter teeth and a smile you can be proud of, there’s no reason to hesitate any longer. Even if you still aren’t quite ready to make a final decision, feel free to contact us with any additional questions you have or if you’d like to have a consultation with Dr. Herman.
