You have to get braces? Cool
Gone are the days when braces regularly provoked taunts of "tin grin" and "metal mouth." Nowadays, braces are not only more accepted than ever — for children and adults alike — they're often downright desirable.

"I think it's become a rite of passage in some way in this society," says Dr. Indru Punwani, professor and department head of pediatric dentistry at the University of Illinois at Chicago.

Between 1982 and 2008, the number of people getting braces in the U.S. leaped a whopping 99%, according to the American Assn. of Orthodontics. And adults are on the bandwagon. From 1989 to 2008, the number of adult patients getting braces rose by 24%.

"The stigma of being 'too old' for braces has diminished for the most part," says Dr. Stephen Tracey, an orthodontist in Upland, Calif. "It wasn't that long ago that adults considered orthodontic treatment 'just for kids."

Orthodontists cite a host of reasons for the acceptance of braces. They've become more affordable, with insurance often covering part of the cost. The devices are more comfortable and less noticeable than in the past. Treatment is shorter, requiring fewer visits to the orthodontist. Society overall is recognizing the importance of oral health. And, of course, there's an ever-increasing social pressure to look one's best.

Braces are "faster, they're sleeker, they're smaller, they're smoother, they're just far more comfortable," says Dr. Michael Rogers, president of the AAO.
