When you think of orthodontics, braces in particular, you may think that they are treatments for adolescents and teens. However, in today’s day, more and more adults are realizing the multiple benefits of orthodontic treatment…which go far beyond a pretty smile.
The truth is, orthodontic solutions aren’t simply about having straight teeth. Crooked teeth can lead to more serious oral health (and overall health) issues.

Why adults are seeking orthodontic solutions
Generally speaking, most people would choose straight teeth over crooked teeth any day. The reason being is that a straight, gorgeous smile can lead to better self-confidence, which trickles over to every area of life, both personal and professional.
However, countless folks have less than perfect smiles. Some have teeth that are crowded or overlying one another, while others have gapped teeth. Some people go much of their adulthood with an imperfect smile because they assume that braces are only for kids and teens. Not so.
Today, more than ever, folks well into their adult (and even senior) years are taking control and achieving the smiles they so desire. Equally as important, though, is that attaining a straight smile can contribute to better overall health.
Teeth that are crooked or even misaligned bites often make brushing your teeth, as well as flossing, much more challenging. Further that that are crooked can cause enamel erosion, jaw pain, gum loss and headaches and even bone loss.
Conversely, teeth that are healthy and straight tend to encounter fewer problems with discoloration, wear and even cavities.
Discreetly straighten your smile
When it comes to straightening your smile as an adult, most are searching for a discreet way to do it. While there’s nothing wrong with wearing traditional metal braces at any age, most adults find that clear aligners are a better solution for them.
Dr. Mitchell Milan of Birmingham Center for Cosmetic Dentistry specializes in adult orthodontics in metro Detroit and has helped a multitude of folks just like you get their best and healthiest smile through Invisalign Invisible Braces.
Invisalign corrects misaligned teeth through the use of aligners customized to your specific needs. Most people wear their Invisalign clear aligners for all but two hours of the day. And while every smile is different, most people are finished with treatment in a matter of months to two years. During your treatment time, Dr. Milan monitors your progress every couple of weeks and provides you with new aligners designed for your shifted teeth.
Invisalign is not only discreet, but also convenient. The aligners can be removed when you eat. As such, you don’t experience limitations with food as you may with traditional braces.
