You don’t have to suffer with a smile you are unhappy with as an adult. Most adults are under the misconception that there is nothing (braces wise) that can be done at that age – this is NOT true. Teeth can be moved and many orthodontic problems can be corrected at any age. Before starting treatment, an assessment has to be made by the orthodontist to ensure that the bone and surrounding tissues are in a healthy state to sustain the forces of orthodontic treatment. It is very rare for adult patients to not be eligible for orthodontic treatment but there are some cases that are secluded from orthodontic treatment due to bone loss over the years. Adults now make up a large percentage of orthodontic patients. You can take care of the spaces and crookedness that you have been uncomfortable with for years. You are never too late for orthodontic treatment!
