An estimated 4.5 million Americans, most of them children and teenagers, wear braces on their teeth, according to the American Association of Orthodontics. About 80 percent of those who currently undergo orthodontic treatment range in age from 6 to 18 years old.
However, the number of adults seeking orthodontic treatment is on the rise, with a recent survey showing that 75% of orthodontists have reported an increase in adult private patients.
The survey also shows that the majority of patients are in the 26 to 55 age bracket and most likely to be women, but the number of men seeking treatment is also on the rise.
One of the reasons for this is the rise in the utility of invisible orthodontics.
In essence, invisible orthodontics is a system of clear, sometimes removable braces that are very hard to see. They’re often a favored option of many adults and teenagers alike who really don’t like the idea of wearing clearly visible metal braces for months on end.
Popular types of invisible braces include ceramic brackets, inside braces and clear aligners.
Ceramic braces are just like metal braces, except that they use tooth-colored brackets, and sometimes tooth-colored wire rather than metal, to straighten teeth. Inside braces are attached to the back of the teeth so they are hidden from view.
Clear aligners are a series of clear, removable aligners made from plastic and custom-fitted to the patient’s teeth.
All of these invisible orthodontics give the patient the benefits of cosmetic orthodontic treatment without the social stigma of standard metal braces in adults.
The invisible orthodontics market has witnessed significant growth due to the growing prevalence of misalignment or incorrect relation between the teeth of the two dental arches when they approach each other as the jaws close (malocclusion) and increasing demand for sensitive, accurate dental procedures.
The wider availability of invisible braces is likely to boost the global invisible orthodontics market during the coming years. The increasing need for looking attractive with safe orthodontic products is expected to drive the growth of the segment.
Employment for entry-level employment in the dental field is expected to increase 23% over the next 10 years, faster than average for all occupations, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. With this growing demand for DAA’s, it is essential that graduates cultivate the skills and traits that will help them stand out in the employment market.
