I've had crooked teeth my whole life. I didn't get braces as a child, and never really thought about my asymmetric smile as an adult. But during one dental cleaning, my dentist casually mentioned that my insurance covered adult orthodontia. I thought: why not?
It took me a couple of months to get used to my orthodontia work, but I've found there's absolutely no reason to be self-conscious about my braces. Did you know that adults make up almost half of all orthodontics patients? And that I actually look kind of cute with my particularly youthful smile? If you're thinking about getting braces as an adult, you might have a few questions or concerns. This blog details what it's like to be an adult with braces. And I encourage you to keep on smiling.
