Receiving braces as an adult may not seem like the ideal course of treatment, but it can actually provide many opportunities and benefits that you may not have considered. If you feel you are too old for braces, we invite you to reconsider for the following four reasons:

1. Everyone should be able to wear a beautiful smile. Your smile makes a first impression, and don’t you want that impression to say good things about you? If you don’t have the smile you want, braces may be the solution.

2. Teeth shift over time and can become more crooked if not treated. Your teeth can keep moving even during your adult years, risking the likelihood of a bad bite. If you have crooked teeth, they may become worse if not stabilized with orthodontic treatment.

3. You can avoid unwanted dental issues by correcting crooked teeth. Bacteria-rich plaque builds between crooked teeth and is hard to remove, but it’s much easier to keep a straight and healthy smile clean.

4. There are so many options with today’s modern braces. Now is the time to enjoy discreet, comfortable, and affordable orthodontic treatment, with braces options such as lingual braces, ClearCorrect®, ceramic braces, and Invisalign®.
