Never Too Old For Braces

Many people think that braces are only for teenagers and young adults; this is not true. Over 25% of people in orthodontic treatment today are adults. Our oldest patient in treatment was seventy-three years old.

You can go through orthodontic treatment at any age as long as the gum tissue and underlying bone is healthy. Healthy gums and bone are achieved through good oral hygiene, and regular visits with the family dentist.

Typically, adult treatment takes a little bit longer than children or adolescents. This is because lighter forces must be applied to the teeth, and tooth movement takes longer.

If you are willing to put up with slightly longer treatment time, you are never too old for braces. Today’s braces are less noticeable than those that were available years ago.

” We offer metal or ceramic brackets and Invisalign. The ceramic brackets are made of translucent material and are practically invisible”.
