5 Reasons to Consider Adult Braces Milton, GA
Woman with braces

While recent statistics show that nearly 20% of orthodontic patients are adults, it is still hard for many adults to come to terms with the thought of getting braces later in life. The truth is, “adult braces” doesn’t always mean wearing metal brackets and bands for multiple years.  In fact, there are newer, more advanced orthodontic options available that are virtually invisible to others and work much faster than traditional braces. Still, there are many reasons why adults should consider braces, including the following:

Braces can help you avoid serious problems within your mouth and body
Misaligned teeth are more than an aesthetic threat. When teeth are unevenly spaced or crowded, it can lead to decay and gum disease due to how difficult it is to clean these tight spaces within your smile. If dental health issues become a frequent battle, it can deplete your budget as well as impact your overall health. Not only is advanced gum disease associated with heart health, but some orthodontic issues can lead to chronic headaches, earaches and even digestive complications.
Adults can experience shifting teeth
Did you know that your teeth can move or shift at any age? Whether it is a new health condition, a recent tooth loss or a jaw injury, your teeth can move around even in adulthood. Therefore, your once perfect smile in the high school yearbook may now appear more crooked or gapped then it was back then. Adult braces can help get your smile back on track.
Braces can boost your confidence and your career
A pretty smile is important. Not only can it help you smile with greater confidence and feel better about yourself, but it can also affect how others perceive you. In fact, studies show that adults with an attractive smile are more likely to do better at work or get a business promotion.
Braces are more affordable now
Not only do many orthodontic offices offer flexible financing plans to alleviate the cost of braces, but many adult patient find themselves in a new opportunity to get what they couldn’t afford as a child.

Our Patients Reviews

I was skeptical about going back into braces. Since this was my second round, I wanted something fast and affordable. I met with Dr. Patel and he was fantastic! He gave me different options, he was very detailed and he answered all my questions.

Dr. Patel is a gem of a person. My daughter is getting braces dine and dr. and staff make sure my daughter is comfortable with the treatment. Dr. Patel explains entire process patiently and gives time to answer any question we may have. Our experience is great and I strongly refer Dr. Patel for yours or your kid's orthodontics needs...

Highly recommend Milton Dental Specialists!! They were so sweet to my daughter and took extra time and effort to make her enjoy her experience and be comfortable! As a parent this is much appreciated! My daughter left smiling and excited to have her teeth cleaned. Thank you Dr. Chong and Renal!

Natalie M.

An inviting waiting room with the front desk staff greeting me with a smile. Staff was very educated answering as many questions as possible since it was my first consultation for orthodontic help. Dr. Patel was VERY personable giving me all of the options for a plan of action the crowding of my teeth, and gave me all the information (time length, issues to be concerned with, financial differences) to help me choose the best plan for me. His details helped me to feel very comfortable with having to get braces as a female post 25+ years. I definitely recommend him as an orthodontist in the Milton/ North Atlanta area if you are looking for one. Best thing is that the first consultation was absolutely free!

Jagdeep S.

Very happy with Milton Dental Specialists. Having a dentist and orthodontist in one location makes dental exams easy while wearing braces. They have great hours and are very accommodating for kids in school who don’t want to miss school for orthodontic or dental work. Very happy with both the dentist and orthodontist.
