Am I too old for orthodontic treatment? - Am I too old for orthodontic treatment

Let us be clear, there is no age limit on undergoing effective orthodontic treatment! No matter your age, or if you have had orthodontic treatment before, it is worth your time to look into having corrective treatment, no matter your age. Even if you had braces as a child, your mouth and teeth can shift over time, and your once beautiful teeth may need a little help again. Patients who have never had corrective services may finally find that it's time to correct their orthodontic issues.

Dr. Frugé provides caring and effective orthodontic treatment for patients of all ages. When you choose to begin the process, your doctor will give you a comprehensive examination to analyze the situation and determine the best course of treatment. There are a variety of different options for adults looking for orthodontic treatment, many of which are less noticeable than the metal braces you may remember from childhood.

If you are thinking about having your teeth straightened, an over or underbite corrected, or any other type of orthodontic treatment, remember that it's never too late! We will review your needs with you and determine if a removable appliance is sufficient to take care of the problem, or if more significant treatment is necessary. Corrective braces now come in removable appliances like Invisalign, and there are other types of braces that are less noticeable. There's no reason to be embarrassed or feel self-conscious about adult braces!

The team at Dr. Frugé's office is here to answer any questions that you may have, and address any concerns about moving forward with orthodontic treatment as an adult. Contact us today to schedule a consultation!
