What is the Best Age for Braces?

While you may be afraid that it is too late to have your teeth straightened that is definitely not the case! At finesse dental we specialise in Adult Braces and treat anyone from the ages of 17-70. It is never too late to have straight teeth.

Can adults benefit from braces?
Just a generation or two ago, it was rare to see adults wearing braces. The myth was that adults’ teeth couldn’t be properly moved.

With today’s orthodontic options, we know that isn’t so. More than 1 million adults over the age of 18 (and even in their 80s) are improving their smiles with braces.
You’re never too old to have a perfect smile!

Why do adults want braces? Reasons vary, but a prime motivation for adult braces is improved appearance. A beautiful smile is not only attractive but a professional asset as well (and a mouthful of badly misaligned teeth can be a detriment). But adults with malocclusion also may be experiencing problems related to incorrect dental alignment. Crooked teeth and a bad bite can contribute to gum and bone loss, tooth decay, plaque build-up, abnormal tooth wear, headaches and chewing problems.

If you’re an adult who is deciding whether to undertake orthodontic treatment, there’s great news: Modern technology has made braces far more comfortable and less unsightly than you probably remember from your childhood. And you can now choose from several treatment options, including “invisible braces,” a specialty of our office. Here is what we offer you:

Invisalign (invisible braces or clear braces): Our practice is a certified Invisalign Provider. With Invisalign, we reposition your teeth not with wires but with a series of clear, customized, removable trays called aligners. Each aligner is worn for about two weeks and can be removed when you eat or brush your teeth. Plus – important to many adults – they are virtually invisible.

Ceramic braces: Ceramic braces are our most popular option. Ceramic braces are clear and, therefore, less visible on your teeth, making them an attractive choice for adults and older teens concerned about their appearance. The clear brackets make for a less chunky alternative to traditional metal braces.

Free Orthodontic Consultation
In the end, the best way to know if you are a suitable candidate for braces is to receive a professional evaluation from a Dentist at Finesse. We offer free orthodontic consultations. Call us today to schedule your free consultation.
