Can adults have orthodontic treatment?

Many people assume that orthodontic treatment is geared towards children but this is not always the case.

Adults can benefit from this type of treatment although the process will take longer. Adults may also find that they require oral surgery either before or as part of the treatment process.

Children are the best candidates as their teeth are still growing and are more flexible than adult teeth. However, adults tend to be better at following treatment instructions than children.

Wearing a brace means looking after it on a regular basis and this is something adults find easier to do than children.

The ages of 7 to 14 are the best time for treatment.
