If you think braces are just for kids, think again. Adults are increasingly seeking orthodontic treatment to enhance their smile and boost self-confidence while improving their oral health. Figures from the Academy of General Dentistry reveal that a million people aged over 18 in the U.S. and Canada wear braces.
Many adults used to shy away from orthodontic treatment, recoiling at the idea of having to wear the sort of bulky metal braces that were prevalent in their younger days. Then, along with the Millennium, came Invisalign, a state-of-the-art teeth-straightening system that has taken the world of dentistry by storm.
