Am I Too Old for Braces?

Am I Too Old for Braces?











Orthodontic treatment for adults is becoming more and more common. In fact, the number of adults getting braces has climbed 24 percent since 1996! More adults than ever are realizing that orthodontic treatment is not just for kids, and can help improve the aesthetics and health of a smile at any age! A well balanced mouth and a healthy bite prevent uneven wear to teeth and reduces the risk of gum disease. In addition to these important clinical benefits, in a society where appearance matters, adults are choosing wisely to invest in orthodontic treatment.
Some of the most common reasons our adult patients come to us considering orthodontic treatment include:
  • Teeth that are crowded or spaced apart, sometimes as a result of tooth decay or gum disease
  • Pain or pressure from crooked teeth or a misaligned jaw
  • A bad bite or malocclusion, causing teeth to fit together incorrectly
  • Most of all though, adult patients come to our office seeking a healthier mouth and a more confident smile! Orthodontic treatment can be successful at any age, and adults especially appreciate the benefits of a beautiful smile.
Technology has evolved to the point where adult orthodontic care may be rendered using different treatment modalities, from braces to clear aligners. If you’ve been thinking about getting that perfect smile, we would love to have you visit us for a consultation.
