At Frost Orthodontics, we believe there isn’t an age limit on when someone can or should have braces. In fact, there are currently over a million people, aged 18 and older, with braces that also don’t believe they are too old to have the smile they’ve always wanted!
According to the American Association of Orthodontics, the number of adults seeking orthodontic procedures is growing significantly. This means that some people who have been hiding their smiles their whole lives are now discovering a variety of orthodontic treatments that both address their issues and perfectly fit in with their lifestyle and needs.
It is a common misconception that if you seek orthodontic treatment, you’ll be locked into two to three years of having to wear Invisalign or braces. Adult touch up braces, in particular, are ideal if you have small gaps or other minor alignment issues that need to be addressed. These short-term braces are required for less than two years (depending on your case) and come in a variety of customizable and comfortable options:
- Traditional metal braces
- Invisalign braces
- Ceramic braces
- Lingual (Behind the Tooth) braces
So whether you have had braces before or not, a quick touch up may be all you need to get the smile you’ve always dreamed of! Contact Frost Orthodontics today to schedule an appointment!
