Braces are fundamentally a treatment that can straighten and correct teeth for a nicely aligned smile. The reason why most people decide to go down the orthodontic route, is because they are unhappy with how their teeth look. Teeth can become crooked or wonky due to a number of reasons, and this can often be seen in the early development stages of children. As adult teeth start to come through it can show early signs that braces may be needed in the future to correct them during the teenage years.
It is a common misconception that braces can only be used with younger patients. This is not true, and we see many adults undergo orthodontic treatment and we are able to successfully correct their teeth. Some of our patients have even been 60+ and there really isn’t any age limit to having your teeth straightened.
We do understand though that having braces at an older age may be embarrassing due to the stigma surrounding these treatments. Traditional braces tend to be quite bulky and noticeable, but with modern day braces, we can make the treatment much more discrete and comfortable.
Over the years the dentistry field has come on in leaps and bounds, and this is especially true for braces. There are now a number of systems that can be used to correct teeth. Certain systems have been designed with different scenarios in mind and may be more suitable for certain types of needs. We are able to offer invisible aligners, removable and fixed braces, clear ceramic fixed braces, hidden lingual (on backs of the teeth) braces, fast short term braces such as 6 month braces.
