Braces are for adults and children of all ages, whether you are 7 or 70 years old, you can still have a wonderful smile. The cyclical healing process which occurs when straightening teeth is the same for everyone regardless of age. It is never too late to have orthodontic treatment. Contact us to book a consultation at our High Wycombe, Beaconsfield or Ealing clinic.
Some believe braces are “for children only” but the truth is that there is a higher uptake of orthodontic treatment among adults than ever before!
Tooth movement is based on biological and physical manipulation of the teeth and their supporting structures. The movement is a basic healing cycle which is replicated several times during the orthodontic process and is identical in children and adults. For this cyclical healing process to be effective the teeth, the gums and their supporting bones must be healthy. It is never too late to have orthodontic treatment. Whether you are 7 or 70 years old, you can still have a wonderful smile.
