You are never too old for braces

Did you miss out on having braces when you were a child or teenager?. There is nothing to worry about because it's never too late to get braces to straighten your teeth. As an adult, you may have a better opportunity to get the problem fixed and more choices than ever. so, don’t be put off by the stereotypes.

According to the American Association of Orthodontists; of the over 4 million people in orthodontic treatment in the U.S. almost 25% are over the age of 18.

How braces work:

The science of orthodontic remains the same either for teens or adults i.e. placing pressure on one side of teeth to change their position. When the tooth starts migrating into its new position, the new bone build-ups in the space vacated on the other side of the root. This prevents the tooth from moving back into its original position. The only requirement for braces procedure is having a healthy jaw bone and permanent teeth.

If crooked teeth are found, childhood is the perfect time for corrective measures as the mouth is still growing so the tissues are more malleable and flexible. The gentle pressure against teeth encourages bones to begin adapting and holding the teeth in their new aligned position. For adults, the entire process may take a little longer than for a child or adolescent as the bone of an adult’s stops growing.

Braces can benefit your oral health at any age. They not only improve esthetics and smiles but mainly improves the bite. A normal bite can prevent TMJ related headaches and problems, improves chewing and speaking, and prevents cavities and gum disease.

The most important thing is today's braces are lighter, more discreet with almost invisible with wider choices of options. So, improve your oral health and dazzling smile - no matter what your age.
