Are you an adult who’s tired of living with the embarrassment of crooked teeth? If you’re under the impression that braces are only meant for adolescents and teenagers, you’ll be happy to know you’re mistaken. It’s a common misconception that mature adults are too old to straighten their teeth, but orthodontic treatments work for adults just like they work for kids.

When Is the Best Time To Get Braces?

Many dentists recommend that parents put braces on their adolescent and teenage children. The reason for this recommendation is because the teeth and jaw are still generally growing during this young phase of life. If the teeth are straightened while they’re still developing, they can finish developing while in the proper placement in the mouth. However, this doesn’t mean you can’t straighten your teeth if you’re much older than a teenager. Braces work no matter how old you are and are rapidly becoming more popular for adults.
