While many adults might feel embarrassed or overwhelmed by the thought of having to undergo orthodontic treatment, the truth of the matter is that adult orthodontics is very common. In fact, statistics have shown that one in every five patients in orthodontic treatment is over 21! Walker Orthodontics believes in granting a beautiful smile to patients of any age. Although adult braces may seem like a scary idea, consider some the following information before ruling out orthodontic treatment as an adult.

How Can Braces Help Your Future

The age old saying “when you look good, you feel good” certainly applies to your smile. How many times have you been told to dress to impress on an interview? What about on a date or at a social event? Dressing to your best ability means wearing your best accessory, your smile. A smile can change everything about your look, your confidence, and therefore your future Dr. John Walker can help you get your best smile in Lunenburg, MA today. Braces will straighten your teeth, realign your smile, and help you put your best foot forward in the world.

It doesn’t have to be noticeable

Many adults shy away from treatment for fear of how they will look while in treatment. Adults often associate the idea of braces with traditional metal appliances, the ones that come with adolescent memories. However, in addition to traditional metal braces, Walker Orthodontics offers a variety of more fashionable options. These include Invisalign, the clear alternative to braces, and ceramic braces, which are similar to traditional though clearer and less visible. These two alternative take the “awkward teenager” idea out of braces, and put the “glowing smile” in.

The cost won’t kill your wallet

Of course, in today’s economy, cost is important to consider. However, depending on how severe the case, the cost of orthodontic treatment can and will vary. Often, traditional braces will cost upwards of $4,000 (with some less expensive options). Invisalign or clear braces will most likely be a bit higher in price (ranging from about $5,000 to a possible $10,000), but depending on how extensive the treatment may be relatively equivalent.  Dr. John Walker can assess your case individually and match the price that is right for you. The staff at are eager to make your experience as cost effective as possible. These prices may seem like a pretty penny, however braces will increase your confidence and your overall look for the rest of your life; something that could be defined as a priceless investment. Moreover, your personal health care plans may cover some of the costs.
