Pain Relief

Having crowded or misaligned teeth or issues with your jaw can be painful! You might be suffering from TMJ or frequent headaches. Fixing your bite issues with braces should relieve much of this pain. 

Boosting That Confidence

If you’ve made it to adulthood without braces, you’ve probably been waiting a long time to make that move. That will make the after results even sweeter! Feeling good about your teeth and smile will lead to a natural confidence boost. Studies show that those who are confident with their smile are more likely to smile more, potentially improving their social life, job opportunities, and more.  Never underestimate the power of feeling great about yourself! 

You’ve Got Options

We understand that some adults may shy away from the idea of metal braces. While there’s no reason to be embarrassed about making your oral health and happiness a priority, we know that this holds some people back. You’re in luck, though! There are now multiple options available for braces at Dr. Ross Taddeo Orthodontics, including:

  • Traditional Metal Braces
  • Clear Braces
  • Lingual Braces
  • Clear Aligners (Invisalign)

Better Overall Health

Straightening your teeth can sort out many more issues than just an unflattering smile. We’ve already talked about relieving TMJ and headaches, but did you know that perfecting your teeth can help your health in the following ways also:

  • Better Digestion! Fixing your alignment can lead to better chewing, which in turn leads to better digestion.
  • Overall Oral Health! Your risk of cavities, gum disease, and other serious dental issues goes down once your teeth are positioned in a way that makes them easier to access while brushing and flossing.
  • Jaw Erosion! If your teeth are crowded or your bite is off, eventually that can lead to jaw erosion.


One big advantage to getting your braces as an adult is that you are more mature than you likely were in your youth. You will take the process seriously and follow instructions, follow proper oral hygiene and dietary restrictions, and overall understand that the better care you take, the better the outcome.
