Young Adults are now up to ten times more likely to have braces in adulthood than a generation ago, as many more admit that they are unhappy with their smile. Braces have steadily grown in popularity amongst adults in recent years and now, a new study* has found one in nine Brits aged 25-34 are having braces in their adulthood (12%), significantly higher than their parents (1%).*
The poll also showed that one in four are unhappy with their smile (27%) while nearly two in three are more worried about how their teeth look now compared with five years ago (64%).  Further findings show that just under half of adults suffer from a lack of confidence because of their smile (45%). 

Tim Molony founder of Comparethetreatment.com commented: 

“Orthodontics treatment  in adulthood, as well as other cosmetic dentistry such as tooth whitening, has become both more accessible and affordable in recent years, and is now a realistic choice for many looking to improve the appearance of their smile.   Improving your smile is something that can be done at any age and with the emotional and proven health benefits of having a healthy smile, clearly it's never too late to do something about yours.”

The survey also revealed that women are almost twice as likely to have braces in adulthood than men, while Londoners are more likely than anyone else in the UK to have the treatment (16%).  The demand for cosmetic dentistry in the UK is steadily increasing and three in four adults questioned say they would feel more confident from receiving a ‘smile makeover’ (76%).

Currently, more than two in three say they never smile in photographs as a result of their smile (70%) while one in ten point to it causing problems in their relationships (10%).  Others believe the appearance of their smile affects their career prospects, determines how they speak or eat in public, and some even reported being bullied because of how their teeth look.

Further results discovered more than a third would not get adult braces because they would feel embarrassed (36%) while one in three over 35 years-old believe it’s too late to straighten teeth once in adulthood. 

However Tim Molony advises that it’s never too late to straighten your teeth and says modern techniques have made braces discreet and almost entirely invisible 

“Tooth alignment can be improved at any age, so long as your gums and bone structure are healthy. Contemporary techniques such as Invisalign treatment can also be discreet and offer a way to achieve straighter teeth without any visible evidence of braces – and instead wear a series of ‘aligners’ which are removable and virtually invisible.  This has led to a substantial increase in enquiries from adults seeking orthodontics and this has also been reflected in the growing numbers choosing to undergo this treatment.” 

Invisalign are clear, custom-made aligners which do not have the highly visible brackets and wires associated with traditional braces.   Align Technology’s Jamie Morley, explains why over four million people over the last 20 years have chosen Invisalign straighten their teeth “For those thinking about improving the appearance of their teeth, the thought of having visible braces can make some of us feel awkward and self-conscious. With Invisalign, there are no visible brackets or wires, in fact, because these aligners are so discreet they have become a great choice for adults and teenagers who want to achieve beautiful, straight smile – with hardly anyone knowing they are having treatment.

“There are also a number of oral health benefits with Invisalign, as firstly, when your teeth are well aligned they are much easier to clean, and secondly because the aligners are removable, brushing and flossing is far easier than with fixed braces.”
