The answer is “Yes, you can and should get braces as an adult”. Braces are not only meant for teens and there is no age limit for getting braces. If your teeth are not aligned properly, then you should choose to get braces no matter your age. However, there are a few factors to consider before doing so. Let’s take a look at what those factors are.

If you are not sure whether or not you need braces, feel free to consult Dr. Natalie Tung from Arcadia Medi-Dental Group in Arcadia, California. She will provide clear answers to all your queries in a safe and friendly environment.

Important Factors to Consider Before Getting Braces

  • You must have strong teeth and jawbone
  • Your teeth are misaligned but you have all your permanent teeth
  • If you have other dental issues, you must get them treated beforehand

Reasons to Go For Braces

Take a look at some of the benefits of getting braces even as an adult:

  • More Comfort

If you are suffering from jaw pain, headaches, or have difficulty swallowing because of your misaligned teeth, braces can help you. It will soothe your discomfort and put you at ease. 

  • Prevent Decay

Misaligned teeth may make it difficult to clean your teeth properly and maintain oral hygiene. Aligning them with braces will eliminate this problem and protect your teeth from decay. 

  • Correct Jawbone Changes

Just as your body changes with age, the jawbone and teeth also develop. Sometimes, this leads to misalignment issues. However, these problems can be corrected by using braces.
