Braces aren’t just for kids anymore!
Tooth alignment can be changed at any age if your gums and bone structure are healthy. At Ortho Point, the oldest patient who has completed her treatment successfully is nearly 68 years of age. We offer a variety of treatments that are designed for different age groups – including adults. A new smile can begin today.
Orthodontic treatment at later stages in life can dramatically improve your personal appearance and self-esteem. Improving the health of your teeth and gums is equally important. Crooked teeth and a bad bite can contribute to gum and bone loss, tooth decay and abnormal wear of the tooth enamel and surfaces.
The new techniques and appliances we use greatly reduce discomfort levels, decrease the frequency of visits, shorten treatment time and may allow you to choose from several options. Dr. Chye’s preference is to use the efficient self-ligating braces as they provide the above benefits for the patients. Your options may include ceramic braces, metal braces, lingual braces or transparent aligners that can be worn to improve mild cases of misaligned teeth.
During the initial examination, we will be able to determine the best possible treatment for your individual needs. During this initial examination, we can outline the treatment plan, time of treatment expected and the approximate cost.
A large percentage of our patients are adults, and they agree that it’s never too late to improve their greatest asset – their smile.
The Smile You've Always Wanted
Adult Brace Options
Teeth can shift with age - because of injury, a condition called tongue thrust, or natural growth – and some adults find that their previously straight teeth have become crooked and overcrowded. They may start experiencing jaw pain, having difficulty properly cleaning their teeth, or simply facing a smile they find unattractive.
Other adults get braces because they've always had crooked teeth, but their parents couldn't afford to pay for braces when they were growing up. Finally, some people say they're just finally getting around to it, or that they want straighter teeth for a new career.
Overall, many adults see braces as a worthwhile investment of a few awkward years in exchange for decades of straight teeth.
