When it comes to braces, there’s no age limit. So if you have crooked, gapped teeth that are marring your smile, you can still straighten things out with many different kinds of braces. After all, there are more to straight teeth than a pleasing smile. Having straight, even teeth allows you to more thoroughly and easily clean your teeth as well as reach every surface. This results to better oral health.

So if you’re already in your 30s, 40s, and even your 50s and 60s, you’ll find that you have plenty of orthodontic treatment options to choose from.

  • Traditional or metal braces are the typical braces that you may associate with the term “braces.” They have a noticeable look, but many teens opt for this because they can personalize their braces with coloured bands.
  • Ceramic braces are similar in size and shape as metal braces, except that the brackets attached to the tooth are made of ceramic. The ceramic is used so it runs clear and more easily blends in with your teeth.
