Number of Adults Getting Braces on the Rise

KENILWORTH, IL-There’s no arguing that straight teeth is viewed as healthy and attractive. Couple that with orthodontic advancements in recent years and it’s easy to see why so many adults are choosing braces to straighten their teeth.
According to survey data, adults make up 25 percent of orthodontic patients today. Dr. Sara Spector, renowned orthodontist, confirms that number at her practice.

Typically when we think of those, we think of preteens and teenagers who were advised by their dentists to consult with an orthodontist as early as possible.

Many people, however, cannot afford extensive orthodontic care early in their lives. Braces can be an easy choice later in life though.

At iDentity Orthodontics, Dr. Spector never lets finances stand in the way of treatment and takes pride in being affordable and flexible in financing.


Adults that have the financial ability to receive orthodontic treatment see it as an investment in several ways. For one, straight teeth often causes a domino effect. People are more likely to smile, leading to more confidence in all areas of life.

Dr. Spector echoes the fact that people with a straight, beautiful smile are often more successful, intelligent and friendly.
