In the past, braces were mainly for children around the ages of 12 or 13 whose teeth needed the help of braces to guide their teeth into the correct position. This is the best time for children to get braces as their mouth and jaws are still growing.
However, braces are no longer just for teeth and no – you aren’t too old for braces!
Your smile can have an enormous impact on your confidence and adults who are embarrassed of their teeth will have lived with a lifetime of shame. Hiding your smile can diminish your confidence and close you off from your friends.
The technology behind braces has moved on so drastically over the past 10 or more years. Adults of any age can have braces to correct minor issues with their teeth or complete smile makeovers to correct bite, move teeth into the correct place and improve the overall appearance of their smile.
There are many options now that are so far away from the metal braces of the past. Practises now provide ‘invisible’ braces – transparent braces that fit around your teeth and slowly make small tweaks to your smile every time you change your retainer. By the end of the treatment (which can depend on the severity of your teeth), you will finally be able to smile confidently.Back to Blog
