Orthodontic treatment is possible at any age. The difference in treating adults is that tooth movement is slower and takes longer to be completed.
This is the first question most adults face before considering orthodontic treatment. The answer is: Yes, definitely! Especially if you want to preserve your teeth until old age.
Treatment at adult age does make sense, for example, if some teeth become prone to damage sooner due to misalignments making proper oral hygiene impossible. Another case that may require orthodontic treatment in adulthood is so-called pre-prosthetic preparation, a treatment which provides space for an implant or prepares for the insertion of bridges or crowns. In some more complex cases, treatment is part of orthognatic surgery.
However, orthodontic treatment may also help you to look better by means of minor cosmetic corrections. A good occlusion is a sign of good health.
In any case, a healthy bite is the best foundation for your dental health. Opposite to what you may remember from your childhood, nowadays there is a variety of treatment options available, as well as modern, very discreet appliances that are barely noticeable.
