There is no age limit for orthodontic treatment. As long as you have healthy teeth, gums and bones, orthodontics can straighten your teeth and correct your bite. More than 30% of orthodontic patients are now adults over the age of 21.
New technology such as Invisalign and clear braces have resulted in appliances that are hardly noticeable and easy to wear. Visits to the orthodontist are less frequent and time in the office has been reduced to fit your busy schedule.
