Braces for Mommy and Me

In summer we wedge in appointments for the kids; a physical for fall sports, an eye exam, plus a semi-annual dental cleaning and checkup. And this could be the summer your kid embraces braces. There’s something about your kids orthodontics that triggers deeply held emotions! Are you old enough to remember those coming-of-age 80s movies where some awkward teenager sat on the bus sporting what appeared to be full-body orthodontia? Did those scenes or the warnings of being locked forever in your first kiss with another metal mouth deter you from getting braces as a kid?

Some of us could have used braces as a kid and weren’t able to get them. Some of us had them but have noticed that our waistline isn’t the only thing that’s shifted a little bit in the decades since. There’s no time like the present to give yourself the gift of straight teeth. You do so much for others; why not do this for yourself?

Whether it’s your first time exploring orthodontia or you’re wanting to be proud of your smile again, adult orthodontia is worth checking out. Improvements in technology allow you to discreetly correct your alignment with tools such as clear brackets or Invisalign. Your orthodontist will be able to tell you which will work best for your needs. If you have dental insurance, let us contact them for an estimate on their adult orthodontia coverage. At First Choice Dental, we offer several options that will work for you and your budget. Schedule an appointment for a free consultation to find out more.

Getting braces as an adult makes perfect sense. You’re old enough to appreciate the investment in your dental health. You’ll love the subtle change when your orthodontia is complete and people start asking if you got a new haircut or lost some weight. And you don’t have to worry about forgetting your retainer on your school lunch tray and digging through the garbage so you can pop it back in your mouth.

The saying goes that youth is wasted on the young. While you might not be able to recapture your youthful innocence or hairline, orthodontia can make you smile like a kid again. Come see what we can do for you today.
