Beautiful, healthy smiles are possible for almost anyone. From age 7 to 70, the biological process of tooth movement is the same. In fact, the most important element in deciding whether or not to begin treatment is the condition of a person’s teeth, gums, and supporting bone. As the science of orthodontics has developed gentler wires and more “invisible” braces, many adults are now taking advantage of improving their smile. Orthodontic treatment is always a change for the better regardless of age.
