Is It Ever Too Late for Orthodontic Treatment?

 In Big Bend Orthodontics, Oral Health

You’ve been told all your life that you need braces, but so far, you’ve put it off for a wide range of reasons. The kids came first. You couldn’t afford it. Maybe orthodontic treatment was just never a priority in your life. Now, you’re wondering whether you’re too old for orthodontics. Is there such a thing as being too old for braces? Its never too late.

The Process Stays the Same

Regardless of how old you are, the process to move your teeth is the same. You can be 13, 30, or 80: it doesn’t really matter. You can still benefit from orthodontic treatment, whether for cosmetic reasons or because you need to fix your bite. Many adults, in fact, choose to begin orthodontic treatment once they have established their careers and can afford treatment. In many cases, their parents couldn’t afford braces or didn’t recognize that they needed them–but as an adult, you can decide for yourself if you want to have orthodontics for cosmetic reasons or even identify problems that your parents didn’t know about when you were younger.

Take a Look at Your Teeth

Do you still have all (or most) of your teeth? If so, you can still benefit from orthodontic treatment. While you can’t have braces if you have full dentures, if you still have your teeth, you can still benefit from braces. There’s no magical age limit or point at which you shouldn’t bother to go forward with treatment. If you want to improve your smile or your bite, orthodontics can help make it happen.
