Too Old to Get Braces?
You never need to fear using braces … Click to open this link in the same window … at any age, and they will help you have the smile you deserve! The biggest difference in orthodontics for adults vs. children or teens is that adults are no longer growing and developing, which just means that adult treatment may take slightly longer than treatment for children/teens with a similar problem due to the maturity and density of the bone adults have.
Additionally, some medications and habits, like smoking, clenching or grinding teeth, or tongue thrusting, can affect the outcome of treatment, meaning there are extra things to consider. Nonetheless, braces do work wonders for adults, and we can help work with you to ensure that you can smile with confidence!
Dr. Chung will work with your family dentist to coordinate care and ensure the best results. Occasionally, your dentist and Dr. Chung may need to call in other dental specialists, such as oral surgeons, periodontists, and endodontists. Although we’re an orthodontic practice, we genuinely care about your overall health, and we thrive when working with your healthcare team.
