How Adult Braces Can Turn Back the Hands of Time Milton, GA
Smiling woman

Whether you are leaving your 30’s or entering your 70’s, anti-aging is a hot topic among many adults. When you consider ways to make yourself look younger, you probably think of anti-aging creams, facial fillers or plastic surgery. But did you know that braces can also be considered as an effective and permanent way to turn back the hands of time?

While we often associate braces with kids or teens, adults can get braces too. In fact, adults may have had braces as a child but need orthodontic treatment again. Perhaps you didn’t wear your retainer like you should have or you’ve had missing teeth, a teeth grinding habit or other circumstances that caused your teeth to migrate out of alignment. Regardless of the cause, you may want to think about straightening your teeth as an adult. Adult braces can undoubtedly improve the health and the function of your teeth (eating, speaking, etc). However, the cosmetic gain in straightening your teeth as an adult can be the biggest advantage of all. After all, no one can deny the fact that straight and aligned teeth create an attractive and youthful smile!

When it comes to orthodontics and cosmetic improvement, a recent article in The Washington Postwent as far as saying that “having braces, then, is like finding the fountain of youth.” The comedian author relays that traditional braces can not only create a straighter and more youthful smile, but the mere experience in wearing the braces can make you feel young on the inside – in other words, it can take you right back to those adolescent days of doing life with metal brackets, wires and rubber bands on your teeth.

If you’d rather put those teenage years in metal braces totally behind you, you will be pleased to know that you have alternative treatment options that can correct your crooked, spaced or misaligned teeth without others knowing. In fact, the braces you wore as a child can be very different from the braces you choose as an adult. Today’s options in modern orthodontics are much more comfortable, faster and discreet than what you experienced as a child. If you want straighter teeth as an adult, you can choose from Invisalign and other advanced treatment options that are more preferred by adult patients.

Ready to take years off of your appearance? Consider calling an orthodontist instead of a plastic surgeon. At Georgia Orthodontics & Children’s Dentistry, we proudly offer the latest treatment options in adult braces. We help patients realize the functional and health benefits of straighter teeth as well as the overwhelming cosmetic advantage. Call today for a consultation!

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!

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 Demtal 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.
