Can I get braces even though I'm an adult?Many people desire to have a perfect smile but are unable to because of several reasons. Crooked and misaligned teeth are one of the major reasons why people are unable to enjoy a perfect smile. For an adult, this could be due to untreated dental problems when they were young. Patients how to visit our clinic regularly ask if they can receive braces to correct their crooked and misaligned teeth.

You can get braces even as an adult to correct the relevant dental problems. Braces are available for any person who wishes to have straightened teeth, to improve their smile. If you have any queries regarding braces as an adult, you can consult with one of our experts to determine if they are the right treatment option for you.

You need to consult a dentist

For you to get braces as an adult, you need an oral examination from a dentist who will determine whether you have healthy jawbones and teeth. This is because braces can result in unwanted complications which our dentists aim to avoid.

Braces will lower risk of tooth decay

Tooth decay occurs mainly due to the accumulation of food particles and bacteria which form plaque. This can be due to improper cleaning of teeth. Crooked and misaligned teeth cause your toothbrush and floss not to clean certain areas of your teeth, therefore, increasing the chance of developing dental plaque. When you get straightened teeth, you will be able to clean your teeth effectively to avoid decays and cavities from developing.
