A common question I get get asked by adult patients is, am I too old for orthodontics? Isn’t it just for kids?

The short answer is, absolutely not. There isn’t an upper age limit for orthodontics, and here at First Impression Orthodontics, we’ve seen patients 70 years old and older. As long as you have good bone levels and healthy teeth, you are a candidate for orthodontic treatment. In addition to a better smile, an added benefit to orthodontics is being able to brush and floss your teeth much more easily, which can help maintain your current bone levels. Nowadays adults often prefer Invisalign or clear liners as an orthodontic option,  and of course braces are always available.

Let’s discuss whether orthodontics is right for you. Contact us today for a consultation I look forward to seeing you.
