I am 54 not quite a senior but I over the years my teeth have shifted. My teeth are healthy otherwise with no cavities but I would like nice straight teeth. Am I too old for braces?
Answer: No you are not too old. there is no age limit for correcting misaligned teeth. The process used to move teeth is the same at any age. Therefore the benefits of orthodontic treatment are available to you regardless of age. The main differences between orthodontic treatments in adults and children is that certain corrections in adults may require more than braces alone and the treatments may take longer because adult bones are no longer growing. Talk to your dentist and discuss your treatment options.
