Orthodontic treatment isn’t just for kids or teenagers (although the American Association of Orthodontists recommends that all children have an orthodontic screening by age seven). In fact, around 1 in 5 orthodontic patients is over the age of 21.
When it comes to adult orthodontics, the main benefit is straightening your smile. This can help boost your confidence, which can improve your quality of life. You’ll also find it easier to maintain good oral hygiene, especially if you’ve got crowded teeth.
Generally, most individuals should see an orthodontist by the age of 12 or 13. The sooner problems are diagnosed, the easier they are to treat. Don’t wait to get braces because you think you’re too old for them. Thousands of adults wear braces to help align their teeth. If you want straighter teeth, don’t hesitate to schedule an appointment with our dentist.
There are two main categories of braces: traditional braces and invisible braces.
The amount of time that your braces take to work depends on the severity of your case. A patient with a mild case can see results within a few months, while a hard case could take up to two years. A thorough diagnosis will help us determine the approximate duration and type of braces that are suitable for you.
