Am I too old for braces?

Braces aren't just for teenagers. No matter your age, it's never too late to improve your dental health and beautify your smile. About 1 million Americans over the age of 18 wear braces. As a result, general dentists today are more familiar with potential concerns and special needs of their adult patients.

What are the benefits of braces as an adult?

Some adults never received orthodontic treatment as children to correct problems such as crooked or crowded teeth, overbites and underbites, incorrect jaw position or jaw joint disorders. If left untreated, these problems can result in tooth decay, gum disease, headaches and earaches, as well as speaking, biting or chewing problems.

Ask your general dentist if you would be a candidate for braces.

How long will I be in braces?

That depends upon your treatment plan. The more complicated your spacing or bite problem is, the longer the period of treatment, usually. Most patients can count on wearing full braces between 12 and 24 months, followed by the wearing of a retainer to maintain the position of the straightened teeth.

Will you be able to see my braces?
