Am I too old for orthodontic treatment?

Orthodontic treatment can be successful at any age, and the number of adults undergoing orthodontic treatment has increased significantly in recent times.

Preservation

The biological process involved in tooth movement is the same in adults and children, with slight differences in the treatment modalities. The health of an individual’s teeth, gums and supporting bone are the most important determinants for improving an adult smile and function as well as long term preservation.

More than mere aesthetics

Often interdisciplinary treatment in conjunction with other dental practitioners may be necessary. Since adult’s facial bones are no longer growing, certain asymmetrical corrections cannot be accomplished with braces alone. These dramatic facial changes, however, are now being achieved successfully using a combined approach of orthognathic surgery and orthodontics for individuals who elect to receive this type of treatment.
