Am I too old for orthodontic treatment?

Am I too old for orthodontic treatment?

No! As long as your teeth and gums are still healthy, you can have orthodontic treatment. Whether you have a previous treatment that has relapsed, or you’ve put off straightening your smile, our team is here to help.

Adult orthodontic treatments are a little different because your jaws are no longer growing. This means treatment times may take longer or may require a combination of treatments, tooth extractions, or jaw surgery to reach the desired goal.

Each patient is unique and it is best to come for an assessment so we can determine the treatments that would be best suited to your situation.

Do I need orthodontic treatment?

If your teeth are crooked or uneven, or you are unhappy with your smile for any reason, we are happy to give you an assessment. Many patients can benefit with solutions that modern advances in dentistry have made possible.

Here are signs you may need orthodontic treatment:

  • Crowded teeth
  • Missing teeth
  • Large gaps between teeth
  • Misaligned bite
  • Overbite or underbite
  • Unevenly worn teeth
  • Difficulty chewing or speaking

Orthodontic treatment options for adults

We offer many discreet and modern solutions for our adult patients, including:

Clear ceramic braces

Clear braces are made from transparent ceramic that helps them blend in with your natural tooth colour. These braces are a great option if you are looking for a traditional treatment with an aesthetically pleasing finish.

LightForce™ 3D braces

LightForce™ 3D braces are the latest system to revolutionise orthodontics and are the world’s first 3D printed braces. We can customise the shape, size, colour, and placement of your brackets to make your treatment as discreet and efficient as possible.

Invisalign® and clear aligners

Invisalign® and clear aligner treatment is still one of our most popular choices for adult orthodontic treatment. It uses custom, transparent aligners to move your teeth into the proper positions. *This product is not available for purchase by the general public. Always follow the directions for use.


Treatment that suits your schedule

Treatment that suits your schedule

We know your schedules are busy, so we take advantage of the latest dental technological advancements to keep your treatment as convenient as possible.

We use Dental Monitoring to conduct remote appointments so you can skip the trip to our practice. On average, our adult patients only need 4-6 total in-office appointments during their treatments thanks to Dental Monitoring.

Just follow the directions in the Dental Monitoring App to take a video of your smile and wait for our team’s recommendations on treatment. In the meantime, you can carry on with your day from home, work, or vacation.
