Do you remember that shy kid in the corner, you know, the skinny little one with freckles on her cheeks and with braces in her jaw? If you were that child, perhaps you can relate to what happened at such a young age and what transpired much later. Whether this was you or not, that young child was often teased by others who knew no better. If they had to see her today, wow, they would not have recognized her.
This does remind you of the classic ugly duckling fairy tale in which this poor little feller was rejected by his brothers and sisters and even his ma, but later on grew up to be a beautiful white swan. And today, enlightened adults with an open-minded approach towards their health and wellbeing will have no qualms about having a dental braces corona consultation or two. Having braces fitted is only a temporary measure.
And it is no longer an awkward experience as it was to that poor young girl but today, beautiful woman. Depending on the physical condition of the jaw, the teeth and even the gums, wire braces may still be used. Otherwise, they are using much lighter materials these days. Some brace fittings are even transparent, meaning of course, that no one is likely to notice. Not that it should ever matter to a mature adult like yourself.
Because as they always say; your health is surely more important. That being said, for adults the fitting of braces is not entirely cosmetic. This is no vanity project, to be sure. The shape of your teeth and jaw could be a serious impediment to other areas of your oral health and would need to be corrected.
